A member of Elisa Monte Dance for 10 years, Fabrice Lamego won praise not only for his technical and artistic proficiency, but also for the energy and sheer joy that infuses his performances. His magnetic presence onstage prompted Monte to choreograph Run To The Rock, a 10-minute solo tour de force, for Fabrice after he had been with the Company only seven months; it premiered in 1998 to universal critical acclaim. He has been featured in nine additional Company world premieres as well as three repertory revivals, and he became Rehearsal Director in June 2002.
“It’s amazing to participate in the creative process that allows music and movement to fuse into a single piece of art and to have the privilege of embodying that work onstage,” Fabrice says. “I’m grateful to the audience for responding to my movements and making it possible to turn an intensely personal experience into a universal one.”
Fabrice danced with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater during its 39th anniversary season. Earlier in his career, he was a guest artist at the Festival of Traditional Dance in Pas de Calais, France, and was a member of Company Metis in his native Guadeloupe, French West Indies.
He is an alumnus of the Alvin Ailey School, which he attended on a French government scholarship the year after he won First Prize in the 1996 National Competition of Dance in Paris, France. He also studied dance at the Formation Du Diplome d’Etat De Dance and completed his Bachelor Of Social Economic at the D.E.U.G. Science Economique Et Social.
Since 1999, he has choreographed three works that have premiered in New York and Bratislava, Slovak Republic. His costume designs were featured in two world premieres in 2002, and since 1998 he has taught dance in New York; Bratislava, Slovak Republic; Lyon, France; and Guadeloupe, French West Indies. Fabrice has danced in Russia, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, France, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Singapore, Philippines, Hong Kong, Barbados, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and throughout the United States.
In 2002, he completed his Polestar® certification under the tutelage of Brent Anderson, and he began teaching by the end of that year. His approach to Pilates is enhanced by the consciousness of body and movement that he developed during his career as a dancer and choreographer.
In 2009 Fabrice became a master instructor for Balanced Body Education. Since 2013 he is the director of Studio Pilates Lausanne as well Pilates Pour Tous Studio in Lyon France, and the run the education department as well.
In 2015 Fabrice enrolled in a two years post graduate program under the tutelage of Kathy Korey in Lausanne. “I’m very grateful to have done this program, it was such an honor to work with Cathy witch help me deepening my understanding of the method”.
Fabrice is an international presenter.
