Looking for an ideal
"In a theater, we always manage to get the best seat to have the best view on the best show. We also often dream to be in the artist's shoes... but if we dream too much, incredible things can happen !"

Self-taught by nature, Jann Gallois entered in the dance world in 2004 through hip hop doors. Very soon she was known by many choreographers such as Sebastien Lefrançois, Sylvain Groud, Angelin Preljocaj, Sebastien Ramirez, Kaori Ito, and collaborated with each of them for a series of creations from 2008 till 2014.
In 2012 after a strong professional experience as a performer, Jann decided to found her own company, Cie BurnOut, and to write her first own solo piece, « P=mg » for which she was 9 times awarded by national and international prizes, such as Paris Young Talent Prize and Beaumarchais-SACD Prize in Paris, Solo-Tanz Theater Prize in Stuttgart, Masdanza Prize in Canary Islands, Machol Shalem Prize in Jerusalem, and Gdansk solo dance contest Prize in Poland.
In 2015, Jann Gallois confirmed her artistic signature, combining hip hop and contemporary dance, by creating once again a solo-piece called « Diagnostic F20.9 », for which she was nammed “Dance Bearer of Hope” of the year by the german newspaper Tanz. In 2016, she created « Compact » a duet piece with her main partner Rafael Smadja.
