Lénablou... Educationalist PDF Print E-mail

In 1990, Lénablou creates the Center of Dance and Choreographic Studies (CDEC) located in the “Assainissement” area of Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe FWI).  Since its creation, the CDEC has been thought as a singular space opened on other fields to feed the students’ artistic appetites. After 20 years of existence, the CDEC is considered a resource place for cultural life in Guadeloupe. Four students from the CDEC have integrated prestigious dance schools and companies such as the Paris Conservatoire, Ailey School in New York, the Rudra Béjart Ballet in Lausanne, and the Batsheva Company in Israel.



In 1993, after obtaining her Jazz and Contemporary State Diploma, she focuses her work further on the creation to define her choreographic writing.



Still looking for development and excellence, Lénablou gets a certificate of aptitude to teach contemporary dance in 2003 defending her educational and choreographic vision based on the philosophy of Gwo-ka.


Her work echoes among many artists including Maurice Béjart who will invite her to animate a master-class at the Rudra Béjart Ballet of Lausanne (2003) as well as Jean-Claude Gallotta at the Centre Chorégraphique National of Grenoble (2002).


In June 2006, she is invited by the Festival Art to lead a workshop in Bogota (Colombia), and in January she holds a Conference around her research work at the “Maison du Patrimoine” (Heritage Chamber) in Basse-Terre.


On the initiative of the city of Moule (Guadeloupe) in 2007, the "Transhumance Techni’ka project” is established; it is a transverse project including training and dissemination of the Techni'ka with some courses, conferences and the performance of the "Grenn Sèl" creation. In July 2007, she continues her knowledge transmission during a series of workshops at the Hivernales d’Avignon which will lead the company to be scheduled for the “Quand les regions s’en melent...” Festival.


In July 2008, Lénablou offers a master-class of Techni'ka at the International Dance Festival in Toulouse, on the initiative of dancer and choreographer, James Carlès. In October, she supports the organisation of a choregraphic meeting "Sonis Danse sa Partition" organised by the Sonis Cultural Centre in Les Abymes.


Following her exchanges with choreographer Ariry Andriamoratsiresy during “The Meetings of the Diaspora” in Senegal and "Sonis Danse sa Partition", in July 2009 Lénablou was invited at the Labdihy Festival in Madagascar and in October 2009 at the Dance and black continents Festival.


In January 2010 Lénablou embarked on a new challenge by creating the Techni'ka Training Centre (CFTK). The objective is to offer, for the first time in the French Caribbean, a professional dance curriculum with Techni'ka and Karibbean Techniques as basic training techniques.



In addition to the many Techni'ka master-class taught by Lénablou in both the Caribbean and overseas, Lénablou nourishes the cultural appetites of her students by inviting, each year International choreographic artists such as Armando Caballero Martèn (Cuba), Pascal Couillaud Jean Vidal, Jean-Guy Saintus (Haiti), Dayron Napolès (Cuba), Julie Adami (Guyana)... .and more recently James Carlès from the James Carlès Centre in Toulouse, Alan Danielson director of the José Limon Institute in New York and Andrew Greenwood (Holland), ballet master and choreographer.
