In English


Virginie Roy’s research, publications, and collaborations are motivated by the idea of movement in physical and psychic spaces in the fields of contemporary dance, architecture, and the artistic diversity practice. In her Contemporary Class she proposes a challenging, sensitive, technical and dynamic class, preparing physically and mentally to be disponible for the day, the choreographic labs and the diversity of artistic approaches.

Virginie Roy has worked as a dancer/performer and assistant choreographer with Christine Gaigg, Daghda Dance Company, Doris Uhlich, Laurence Levasseur, Noé Soulier, Sabine Glenz, Saskia Hölbling, Yvann Alexandre, as well as with the directors Andrea Breth, Philippe Arlaud and Philipp Harnoncourt, among others. She combines these experiences in her practice as a clinical health psychologist and sport psychologist, as a dancer/performer, as a professor of contemporary dance in the faculty of performing arts at the Music and Art University Vienna, and lecturer on movement and psychology at Sigmund Freud University.

The training is part of the Dance Academy Camp SOLID GROUND – CHALLENGING SPACE. Interested professional dancers and performers can take part in this course. The number of places is limited.
