Aurel Dance Miami

Jean Aurel Maurice was born in Saint-Martin (French West Indies) from Haitian parents. He made his first dance steps from a very early age with haitian traditional dance and drums. He partakes his dance studies between the Caribbean, France and United States of America. In 1998 he was honoured with the status of Lauréat Lavoisier (prestigious scholarship competition from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Paris). He danced professionally with famous dance companies, such as Dance Theatre of Harlem, Berlin Opera Ballet, Forces of Nature and many others around the world. He holds the French state diploma for teaching classical ballet. After one season at the Paris Opera Garnier in 2003, performing in the opera-ballet Les Indes Galantes, by choreographer Blanca Li, he established himself in Jacmel (South East of Haiti), where he is directed a distinguished dance school and community dance program. His work as a choreographer is a complete synthesis of classical ballet, Haitian dances, theater, martial arts, all blended into a humorous and elegant style.
