Administration

JULIE TROUVERIE

Sophie Centenero became SOMA's co-administrative director in January 2019.
Her career is atypical: first nurse until 2008, dancer-performer in a collective of artists in Toulouse, then in Brussels (2008-2011) and co-director of a “table d'hôte” in Brussels (2011- 2013).
In 2008, she met Body-mind Centering® during her training as a modern dancer. She is certified ESM (2015), practitioner (2017) and in the teacher training (finishing in May 2019).
The BMC® is the link between her past nursing practice and performance dance. She also discovers another way of being in the world, a reflection on communication. This method allows her to better live her contradictions and to tend towards a peaceful life. Decision making becomes consensus and horizontal. She joined the BMC® Professionals Association in France first, then the Body-Mind Centering® association, which she became in 2019 vice-president. She works to connect BMC professionals nationally and internationally.
In Toulouse, she organizes workshops for the general public and for dancers. She is involved in the Caracol training, which offers support to artists through somatic education. She gives individual sessions for all those who wish to better understand themselves in their socio-professional and / or artistic context. She collaborated on the production of video clip for the electro-metal rock band Sidilarsen: direction, choreography and artist coaching.
