Gabrielle graduated from Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2010. During her career as a dancer, she has collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including Louise Bédard, Geneviève Caron-Ferron, Bettina Szabo, Anouk Thériault, Katia-Marie Germain, George Stamos, Élodie and Séverine Lombardo, Sarah Dell’Ava and Marilyne St-Sauveur. 

She worked as a researcher for The 26 Letter Dance, and Glitch will be her second time working in collaboration with Bouge de là 

At the heart of her work as a performer, teacher and choreographer is her belief in the need for dance and the doors it opens to oneself and others. As a teacher, she takes great interest in teaching contemporary dance to both children and beginner adults. This ensures she never loses touch with what she deems essential to her artistic practice. She is currently working on the creation of Géante, a solo work in which she is both choreographer and performer.
