Meet the New Brunswick Arts Board, board member from Edmundston Nathalie Cyr-Plourde!
Nathalie lives in Edmundston, where she teaches third grade at the Carrefour de la Jeunesse. Having a father who is both a musician and school principal who supports the arts in the school system, she was exposed at an early age to different elements of art. At age 16, she became particularly interested in dance. When still in university, Nathalie integrated into the competitive dance group “The Main Street Dancers” in which she has been a member for the past 21 years. Today, she teaches and studies the styles “hip hop, jazz, contemporary and lyrical”. She is very implicated in the arts in schools and is involved in the production of community shows. Furthermore, she has the opportunity to represent her region at conventions and international level competitions.
