Virginie Personne – Petits Pas

Passionate about dance, I began my studies in ballet at the regional conservatory in the north of France and graduated in 1999 with a diploma in classical dance. My passion with dancing and performing extends beyond the classical and into jazz and modern dancing. I explored my craft even further by joining national and international dance companies (Germany). Everything that I undertake in life, I do with passion and love. I am lucky to have many loves in my life, my 2 boys and my very supportive husband. I am also lucky to have many passions. Dancing has allowed me to express my artistic nature and explore my more creative side. I simultaneously also pursued a diploma in engineering and biotechnology and eventually went on to become a Physician. As a physician, I was able to fulfill my passion for sciences. There is no greater joy than being surrounded by children every day and making their day a little brighter. I have always managed to incorporate them both into my daily life while living in Paris. During my medical studies, I continued to stay closely involved with my artistic craft. I taught at many Parisians dance schools and also choreographed many of their performances.
I still remember the day my husband said: “would you like to live the American Dream?” Paris _ CA here we come! Today, I feel extremely overjoyed for this amazing opportunity. For many years, I had dreamed of opening my own dance school. With the incredible support of my partner, I am realizing this dream. And to get there, I realized, everything in life must be taken “à Petits Pas”. I am overjoyed to share my practice with each of you. A Ballerina at heart, I am offering classes that will effortlessly integrate contemporary movement and modern dance. As a Next Generation Yoga® Teacher, I will also get the opportunity teach children the beneficial powers of internal well-being".
