Louise Lecavalier has been called the most brilliant dancers of our time; a "rock star of dance," and
"flame on legs".
With her unique strength, speed and suppleness, Lecavalier has succeeded in
building a reputation as one of the most significant players on the
international dance stage. Her explosive stage personality provides a
titillating contrast to the graceful postures of classical ballet and gives a
strong impression of physical presence. A fusion of movements that has allowed
her to contribute to pushing back the boundaries of contemporary dance all over
the world - and for more than 25 years.
