Gaelle Gimet

Barre&Baby teacher Nice , South of France

Gaëlle comes from Paris, France. She started dancing at age 7 and has always danced several hours a week, even while devoting herself to translating English and American literatures during her university studies. At the same time, she developed a passion for writing, singing and musical composition which she still practices.

A modern jazz and contemporary dancer, she began learning salsa during a trip to Cuba. On her return, she kept on learning with the desire to develop a professional career as a dancer and teacher. She therefore delivered courses and masterclasses, an intense training in Paris and shows in France and Europe. 

Performing made her vibrate and it has been truly there where her creativity and sensitivity can be expressed and resonate with those of the audience. She became a certified Latin dance teacher in Paris, aiming to pass on keys to women to feel comfortable in their body and their dance and to get them to move in a way that suits them.

 In 2019, she became the mother of a little boy and decided to devote herself fully to him: three years of parental leave, long-term breastfeeding, carrying the baby a lot and dancing with him regularly, seeing the immediate benefits of shared movement. 

So much so that she has this vision, in the middle of the pandemic, to make a career out of it to combine family life, passion for dance and the desire to serve the mother-baby relationship. For her, these are the type of values ​​that society needs and the pandemic outside only reinforces her convictions.

In 2023, first trained on the question of dance, the perineum and maternity by the choreographer Ingrid Bizaguet and the midwife Pauline Higgins in Paris, she then met Elisa Reinerio whose training she joined and was certified Barre and Baby Teacher and “peer supporter” in baby carrying.

She teaches classes in Nice and surrounding areas (South France, Alpes Maritimes) and will be leading workshops at the Maison des Mille Premiers Jours. She uses dance movements inspired by Latin dances, modern jazz and contemporary dance to accompany mothers’ feelings.

Sometimes, she leads baby’s time with a few gentle notes from her ukulele and already dreams of integrating a poetic writing workshop around motherhood into her activity.
