Marie-Agnès Gillot

Marie-Agnès Gillot is one of the most in-demand dancers in France and beyond. Whether performing in works by acclaimed choreographers or starring in fashion designers campaigns, she has inspired creators from the dance and fashion worlds and collaborated with a wide range of international artists. Nominated “Etoile” in 2004, she was the first female in-house choreographer to receive a commission from the Paris Opera Ballet. She has staged her works across balletic, contemporary, and even hip hop styles. Marie-Agnès actively supports a number of philanthropic causes. This is therefore as a celebrated artist and as a woman of commitment and conviction that she joined the What Dance Can Do Ambassadors.
