Chloe took up dancing when she was six years old, and won her gold medal at the Academy of music and dance in Caen (Conservatoire Nationale de Région). She continued her dance studies at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse (C.N.S.M.D) in Lyon, where she took part in the national and international youth ballet tours. She then went to P.A.R.T.S (Performing Art Research and Training Studio) directed by Anne-Teresa de Keersmaeker in Brussels. After she had completed her studies, she developed her own exploratory work and produced a number of choreographies: "Two parts", "Chaconne en ré mineur", "duo on traditional Indian music". In her first year at P.A.R.T.S, at the invitation of David Zambrano in Amsterdam she joined in a research project on improvisation called "Passing through". This experience influenced her conception of movement and choreography. When she had completed her studies, she took part in the European ITS festival with her solo "Chaconne en ré mineur". She then performed with dance companies Arco Benz (Belgium) and Willy Dorner (Austria). Guided by Aurélie Morin on the play "Perpetuum mobile, un petit tour de terre…", she developed an interest in puppetry and since then she has worked with Théâtre de Nuit. She adopted shadow puppetry as a medium complementary to dance.
