Esther Carré

Executive Director 

Esther Carré Executive director L'École de danse de Québec

Esther holds degrees from the École Supérieure de Danse du Québec and the University of Montréal. She has been teaching dance since 1999 at the École de danse Quatre Temps in Rimouski where she also worked as Deputy Program Director and Coordinator of the Danse-Études program. These experiences have enabled her to develop a thorough understanding of the academic world and to acquire a strong teaching experience. 

Esther joined L'École de danse de Québec in August of 2017 as a ballet teacher. Her appointment as Executive Director became obvious when it was decided to strengthen the School Direction, not only due to her past experiences but also due to the quality of the relationships she has developed with staff members and students and to her desire to open new horizons for L'École de danse de Québec.
