Jonathan Breton: Choreographer & Dancer
Saint Gervais la Forêt, France
What Moves You?
“Curiosity and Emotions! I love exploring new cities, countries, and getting to know new cultures… Anything I can learn is feeding me as well as my dance and art. Emotions are the #1 thing that gives birth to my movement, and I hope that audiences feel something as well, anything, when attended a piece I choreographed or performed in . I want to keep discovering things and being hit by the whirlpool of multiple emotions – and to be able to translate them into movement and energy.”
Jonathan graduated from the Superior Institute of Performing Arts of Paris and obtained his French National Ballet Technique Examination at the Paris Opera before moving to New York to further his dance education at the Alvin Ailey School, and then at the Martha Graham School (as an open student). Jonathan performed in several musicals and with many dance companies, including Alison Cook Beatty Dance, Transcendance Group, Eryc Taylor Dance, Zion Dance Company, Footprints, Coyote Dancers… among others. He choreographed for la Compagnie de l’Etoile in France for 4 years, and he is now choreographing for AZOTH Dance Theatre, a NYC based dance company touring internationally.
