Paul-André Fortier has a wealth of teaching experience, having taught at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) from 1989 to 1999. The 10 years spent at UQAM gave him an opportunity to discover a passionate and impassioned new generation of dancers, for whom he created Jeux de Fous (1998), interpreted by three young dancers just graduating from university. Pursuing his support for young new talent, his work Risque (2003) is also dedicated to young performers just beginning their careers.
Paul-André Fortier is regularly invited to teach at institutions across Canada and in Europe, including: le Centre national de danse contemporaine d’Angers (CNDC), the Victoria School of Performing Arts in Edmonton, the School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg, les Ateliers de danse moderne de Montréal (LADMMI), the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre, The Ballet de Lorraine’s professional integration unit, and the LABAN Center in London. He also ran an internship in 2009 for young professional choreographers in Vancouver Dance Center. In 2010, he will repeat the experience with the Solo 30x30 project, in Montreal, at Circuit-Est, choreographic center.
As part of his teaching activities, he created MVTS (Pièce urbaine) in 2001 for CNDC students, Excès (2002), a piece interpreted by LADMMI graduates and Sparks (2003) for eight students at the School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg. In 2009, he made When the Forest Meets the City for the students of the School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg, as well as Soft Tension for The School of Toronto Dance Theatre.
In association with the presenters who host the company in different cities, Fortier Danse-Création is developing relevant teaching projects and development of audience activities that are compatible with the environment, the audience, the location, the presenter's objectives, and the company's own creative endeavors.
