Like Eric Gauthier, Mathilde was educated at the National Ballet School of Canada in Toronto. After graduating, she decided to stay on and enrolled for advanced training programmes, most recently the Company Life Programme. The idea behind it: to prepare young dancers in a protected environment for the tough demands of a professional dance career. Mathilde took full advantage of the opportunity and trained, among others, with NBC artistic director Hope Muir, James Kudelka and Rex Harrington. Most recently, she performed in the National Ballet of Canada production Symphony in C, rehearsed by legendary Balanchine répétiteur Joysanne Sidimus. Mathilde will be dancing with the Gauthier Dance JUNIORS from the 2023/24 season.
