In order to show the diversity of career paths undertaken by Danse Transition grant recipients, we invited Bastien Genoux from Detours Films to create their video portraits. These short films show the difficulties but also the achievements of dancers during the process of their professional transition. For their second careers, dancers choose a wide range of study and retraining programs: Actuarial science, Chinese medicine, Business adminstration, Gyrotonic method insctructor, Public Health, Pilates instructor, Cultural management.
