Maëva started her training at Institut Kim Kan, Paris at the age of eleven before going on to study at the C.N.S.M de Paris, under the direction of Quentin Rouillier. After graduating in 2003, she joined the Junior Ballet (Paris) where she danced in works by Hervé Robbe, Pedro Pauwels, Angelin Preljocaj and Mark Tompkins.
Maëva was a performer and founding member of the dance, live music and video collective COLLECTIF LARSEN and during this period she also worked as a freelancer in French companies such as Bruce Taylor Company and Fal&Pas Company. She then worked with Emanuel Gat Company for two years and more recently has been working for a Batsheva and Riksteatern project where she was performing Ohad Naharin’s work Kamuyot. Maëva joined Hofesh Company in January 2010.
After spending years touring internationally as a performer and as a teacher for choreographers like Emanuel Gat, Ohad Naharin & Hofesh Shechter, Maëva teaches a technique class focused on reconnecting dancers to their instruments: Body & Mind. The aim is to help them gain a sense of acceptance, enjoyment, creative freedom and harmony.
