Trained in dance and in theatre, the former leading to the latter, and a specialist in body rhythmics, Carol Jones has been working in the artistic milieu for more than thirty years. With a master's degree in theater, she acts, dances and choreotheatergraphs. We have seen her on stage (Free, Pour filles de couleur, Angélique, Conte à Rebours); on television (Chez Denise, Les dames de cœur, Watatatow) and on the big screen (Le Matou, Louis 19, Je me souviens).
The daughter of a jazzman, nourished by African rhythms, Carol continues to develop her technique in body rhythmics, associating various percussive dances and drum rhythms. She teaches this in several schools, notably at UQAM and Rencontres Ados Théâtre. She also collaborates in musical productions, including projects with the Orchestre Métropolitain. Her art sends her travelling around the globe to participate in symposia, present her creations and offer workshops.
Carol recently completed a training at the National Centre for Dance Therapy (NCDT) to complement her graduate's degree in Mental Health. On this front, she works with various populations: the elderly, victims and survivors of abuse and conjugal violence, so-called hyperactive children and people with Parkinson's Disease. In March 2017, she participated in the Day of Reflexion on Arts and Health Day held in Paris and organized by the NCDT.
