Emilie Lesage

Mymy has always been fascinated by artistic forms of expression as gymnastics, dance and visual arts. She teaches with dynamism, respect and humour, the same way she teaches in her Cegep’s classes of Art History. After she discovered swing dance in 2008, she worked her way up through many Swinging Air Force (SAF) troupes. Since 2012, she had the chance to perform and compete in America and Europe as a member of Squad, the advanced team of the SAF. Mymy also made her mark individually and won different prices in Solo Blues (CSC 2011 et 2013), Solo Charleston (SwingADance 2014) and Lindy Hop (2nd place Pro-Am at ILHC 2011 and Select Classic 2011). During the years 2014-2015, she had the joy to coach the team Lindy Brigade while she was getting ready for the new challenge of becoming a mommy.
