YVES ROCRAY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

With a Graduate Diploma in Cultural Organization Management from HEC Montréal, Mr. Rocray has worked in the arts since 1986 and has been the Executive Director of the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal since December 2007.
His diverse array of experiences as manager of cultural organizations—at the Théâtre Denise-Pelletier, the Théâtre Petit à Petit, the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde and the École nationale de Cirque—has led him to pinpoint with masterful precision the issues currently facing the arts—a huge advantage for a school in constant evolution.

LISA DAVIES, ARTISTIC AND PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Lisa Davies has been working in the professional dance field for over thirty years, in Quebec and internationally. Throughout her career, she danced on international stages as a performer (Les Grands Ballets, Édouard Lock/La La La Human Steps, Crystal Pite, Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe etc.), as a guest teacher and rehearsal director for over 15 different companies (Emily Molnar/Ballet BC, Christian Spuck, RUBBERBANDance Group, BJM Danse, Akram Khan Company, National Ballet of Canada, Ballet Zurich, Czech National Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, Cas Public, Wayne McGregor Random Dance Company, etc.), and founded Danse à la Carte where she was general and artistic director for nearly a decade. In addition to supporting hundreds of professional performers and choreographers annually via daily training, residencies and networking opportunities through dance, the organization annually holds the intensive TransFormation Danse as well as Propulsion, which has taken turns welcoming renowned artists from all walks of contemporary life (Edouard Lock, Hofesh Shechter, Margie Gillis, Louise Lecavalier, Virginie Brunelle, Catherine Gaudet, Victor Quijada, Frédérick Gravel, Alan Lake, Sylvain Emard, Mélanie Demers, Marcos Morau, Adi Salant, Alexandra Spicey Landé, Emmanuelle Le Phan….) in order to provide workshops and networking opportunities to the dance community. In the past decade, Lisa’s commitment to art and artists has supported hundreds of dancers and choreographers and as many creative projects locally and internationally. Sought after for her expertise and renowned for her integrity, her passion and her dedication to exploring and advancing the practice, she took over the artistic direction of the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal in 2023.
