Marie-Pascale Bélanger studied visual arts before discovering dance in 1990. In 1994, she was awarded an honourable mention for her artistic coverage of Pas-sage dance from the Montreal International Short Film Festival. She received a diploma in dance interpretation at the Modern Dance Studio of Montreal in 1997. Her passionate interest in choreography then compelled her to create several pieces that were presented, among others, to the Tangente Theatre and in various arts centres in Montreal and Ontario. She has also, in 2000 and 2001, produced two commissioned works of choreography for the graduates of Montreal modern dance studios. She is currently completing a Masters Degree in dance at the University of Quebec, Montreal where she is working on the fusion of the artistic formats of video and choreography.
