Marc-Olivier discovered dance at the age of 18, in 2009, at a MJC (Maison des Jeunes et de la Culture, lit.Youth and Cultural Center) in Réunion. He started dancing “seriously” when he entered University, where he met professional hip-hop dancers trained in Metropolitan France.
He thus learnt about the Juste Debout School in Paris, which he joined in 2012. Not only did he specialize in hip-hop freestyle, house but also in contemporary dance through several modules offered by the school.
During his third year at University, he joined the Pure Company (Bastien Nozeran) and therefore discovered Contact dance and Modern Jazz. At the end of the year, he participated in a hip-hop creation with the choreographer Romuald Brizolier.
