Jonathan BROCHU

Sports and arts have always been a part of Jonathan’s life. His youth was filled with gymnastics, hockey, soccer, opera singing, ballroom dancing and track and field, which unconsciously forged his future physical career. He later studied hand to hand, acting, dance and other disciplines at the National Circus School of Montreal (2000-2003), specializing in hand balancing and acrobatics. He also trained for chinese pole rigorously, which became one of his specialties in Cirque du Soleil’s Saltimbanco.

Jonathan has been mixing circus arts with dance since 2004, putting to use the various dance trainings he received during his youth. He thus performed in many shows such as Bombay Blue, Viva Casino and others on cruise ships.

His work extended to the screen when he started doing commercials for companies such as Danone (2003) and Artv (2012) and appearing as a coach in ILS DANSENT (2011).As for coaching, Jonathan has shared his expertise by teaching at the National Circus School of Montreal, Cirque du Soleil and other sports and cultural establishments. He also had the chance to give workshops in different parts of the world.

After 10 years of work as a professional in more than 15 different countries, Jonathan joins SYLVIAERA’s team as a professional performer and a teacher in 2013. He shares his experience, know-how and energy through the “Acrobatics for Dancers” classes, which are customized for beginners as well intermediate students of all ages.
