Julie Tymchuk

After taking courses in the dance program at Concordia University, Julie Tymchuk studied at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, where she soon grasped that the focus of her passion was the physical and anatomical aspect of movement and dance. Further research led to several workshops in New York, Berlin and Vienna. In Vienna she had the opportunity to work with Frey Faust, founder of the Axis Syllabus technique, which seeks to intensify dancers’ awareness and reflexes so as to improve the dancer’s kinetic efficiency. Julie’s spirited style and implacable technique were greatly appreciated during the Danse de mai-Opus event at the Maison de la culture Frontenac in 2012. That same year she performed in Aube by choreographer Katia-Marie Germain, presented at Espace Tangente. She is also involved in promoting new works through her alma mater as a member of the Projet incubateur committee, which encourages young performers to explore creativity in various forms.
