Competences aimed at :
Dominique is trained in cotemporary/modern and African dance. Her interest in Mandinka dance led to numerous trips to Mali and Burkina Faso, where she improved her practice amidst the dancers in the National Ballet of Bamako and in the Yelemba de Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso) dance troupe. Her goal is to create conversations between contemporary dance and the traditional African forms. Her discovery of the Silvestre Technique in 2003, which links Afro-Brazilian and modern dance, echoed this pursuit and greatly influenced her work and direction in dance. This was also the year she founded the Yata Dans’ association with Luanda Mori.
She danced with Filibert Tologo (Kouman/2006 and Entre-Deux/2007), with Luanda Mori (Sopro-Souffle/2010), Alidou Yanogo (La trace des pas de l'invisible/2013, Tounga/2016 and Sia/2021). She danced and acted in the play Myriam Boukris (Cie Tohu Wa Bohu) "Dis Mémé, c'était comment ta vie?" 2015, "Je suis Boue" 2017 and "Sauve-moi" 2022).
She also teaches contemporary African dance to adults, teenagers and children.
