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 in Europe and across Canada, 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, l’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal (EDCMTL), the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre, The Ballet de Lorraine’s
professional integration unit, and the LABAN Center in London. He also ran a workshop in 2009 for young professional choreographers at the Vancouver Dance Center and another one in 2010 about the
Solo 30x30 project at Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique in Montreal.
As part of his teaching activities, he created MVTS (Pièce urbaine) in 2001 for CNDC students as well as Sparks (2003), When the Forest Meets the City (2009)
and Thin Ice (2015) for students at the School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg. He created Soft Tension (2009) and, in 2014, did a remake of Tell (1987) for The
School of Toronto Dance Theatre.
His company, Fortier Danse-Création, is always open to develop teaching projects and dance outreach activities, corresponding to the presenter's needs, and compatible with the company's own
