During her teenage years, Marie joined the folkloric dance group of her home town and had the chance to travel all over Europe and North-Africa. She performed with her group in famous international folkloric festivals, as well as in small country towns. She enjoyed discovering many different cultures and it gave her the taste of travel.
After a master degree in IT and management, she settled in Paris where she worked as an IT engineer in Investment Banking. She still managed to find time to continue her training in Ballet, Pointe, Modern and Jazz several times a week.
She moved to California in 2008 and joined Harmony Dance Center in 2009 where she took Modern, Jazz and Hip-Hop classes. After taking a few years off work to take care of her family, she decided to be more involved in her true passion and started to work for Harmony Dance Center in 2013, first as a staff member and then as a Ballet teacher.
She realized that she loves sharing her knowledge and her passion for dance. Also, she finally fulfills her childhood dream of dancing almost every day!
