Mya Thérésa Métellus

Last updated: May 24, 2024

Born in Tio’tia:ke (Montreal), Mya Thérésa Métellus’ passion for dance develops quite early and leads them to classical ballet. Twelve years later, turning towards contemporary dance allows a sort of liberation and a feeling of inclusivity through which a career seems conceivable. All the while, Mya discovers multiple styles including lyrical, tap, musical comedy, hip hop and Haitian folk dances. These gave them access to the different facets of their dance and enabled them to explore their Haitian heritage. After completing two- years in the bachelor program in dance at UQAM, Mya enrolled at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, where the creative processes - with Stacey Désilier, Sébastien Provencher, Hélène Remoué, Edgar Zendejas, Stefania Skoryna, Parts+Labour_Danse and Alanna Kraaijeveld - as well as the reworking of repertoires - with Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Jacques Poulin-Denis and Stephanie Lake - were richly rewarding. Mya tries to carry their voice as an assertive leader and their artistic singularity through all encounters, as well as delving into their origins.
