Maïlys is an artist being deeply passionate by dance, singing and music. From her childhood onwards she has been dedicating to dance (starting with Rythmique Gymnastic) and classical music (Piano-Flute).
She decided to go further as a professionnal dancer and singer after high-school graduation, In 2013 she graduated from the Musical Theater School : Choreia Art Studio, Paris. She kept strenghning her skills by following an intensive Acting class, an Opera singing conservatory and a Dance school (jazz-ballet) in Paris.
In 2014 she discovered Brazilian Zouk and Samba de Gafieira in Paris, and instantly felt in love with brazilian dances. The spirit, the community, the technic, the aesthetics, the connexion, the field of freedom and creativity that those dances embodies, was all she was looking for in Dance. Allowing to share and create with a partner, but also to give a pattern to improve the body expression.
She studied 4 years with Alex de carvalho in Paris, was being part of DBAC, Alex de Carvalho’s French team.
In 2018 Maïlys moved to New-York city for an 8 months intensive Dance program at Broadway dance center, concentration in Jazz, but also learning ballet and contemporary. Beside school, she connected, learned and dance with Ry’el and Jessica, being part of their team and performing by their side in Atlantic city.
From 2018 until now she learned from Gilson Damasco, master and reference in Lambada/Brazilian Zouk. This way she could connect with the history of this dance, the rythm. The roots, the joy.
From opera singing, to lambada, musical theater to classical music her everyday life is a mix of different arts !
She has being traveling, discovering dance in many places Brasil-USA-Holland-Spain-Chech Republic, Mexico, Croatia, Israël …), enriching her soul and her dance learning from teacher and getting inspired by dancers from all over the world.
