About Pierre: Born and living in Montreal, Canada, Pierre Chartrand is a dance historian-ethnologist, choreographer, master step-dancer and accomplished dance caller. Dancing for more than 35 years, he regularly performs and teaches in Quebec, Canada, the United States, and Europe. After achieving his Master in Dance at the Sorbonne (Paris) in 1991, he founded the Centre Mnémo (see, http://www.mnemo.qc.ca/), an extensive resource center for traditional Québec dance and music. Pierre has published numerous books on folk music and dance as well as many articles for magazines, and has lectured and spoken both on radio and at conferences. He has won international awards for both dance and choreography. He taught dance at the Université du Québec à Montréal and recently teaches in the folk music program at Cégep de Joliette (Junior College) in Joliette, Québec. In 2000, he started his company, Danse Cadence, and began producing his own shows based on Québec music and dance (for more information on Danse Cadence, see http://www.danse.qc.ca/). Current productions include, among others, RapetipetamChasse-Galerie, and Le Bal des Ménestriers.
