At the age of 5, she started her comedian training in the Campagnol Theatre, National Drama Theater in the south of Paris (France), directed by Jean-Claude Penchennat, and with the UVSR company.

She’s trained to many different practical living arts like mime, dance, improvisation, masks, comedia dell’arte, clown, street performances, puppets, martial arts… and also to the technical arts to create a complete show (sets, costumes, make up, lights…). She could see the professional work going on in the National theatre and sometimes took part of the creations as a child.
