Born 1986, in Gatineau, Laury-Ann practices gymnastics from the age of six to eleven. After her participation in the 1997 Canadian championship in Hamilton, she decides to turn her sights towards dancing. She then participates in many competitions and makes it as far as finals in her high school talent show.
In 2003, Laury-Ann starts her collegiate studies in arts at the Félix-Leclerc campus in Gatineau. She then turns her sights towards Montreal, obtaining her diploma in contemporary dance at the St-Laurent Cégep. During those years, she participates in "Cégep en spectacle" and wins, two years in a row, the public choice award for two contemporary dance numbers.
It's while watching "Traces, des 7 doigts de la main" that Laury-Ann has her life-changing revelation: she decides to tackle the circus world. After a full year of hard work at the Verdun Circus School, she is finally admitted to the National Circus School. She then finds her affinity: the "hand to hand". Since then, she has had many circus contracts, some as far as Egypt in 2008 and Mexico in 2012. She even participates in the opening number for the ''Parlementeries'' in 2009, hosted by Stéphane Rousseau. Afterwards, she is recruited by the ''Flyers All-Starz'' cheerleading team for the world championships. Her team classes first in Canada and fifth worldwide.
In 2010, she is added to the roster of ''Cirque du Soleil'' and ''Cirque Eloize''. The following year, she competes in the t.v. show: "L'échelle du talent - Zéro à 1000$". She wins first place with 1000$ and is asked to participate in their ''all-star'' week for that season with her acrobatic dance number. She took part in "Bodies in Urban Spaces" by Willi Dorner and danced for "Les minutes complètement cirque" by Anthony Vénisse for the second and third seasons. She was also chosen for the "7 doigts de la main" auditions on October 16th, 2011.
On March 25th, 2012, Laury-Ann dazzles the audience with her acrobatics during Mika's performance in ''Star Académie''. On April 22nd she's in the ''Gala Artis'' as Janette Bertrand's double in a fight scene with Charles Lafortune. In Mai she participates in the ''Mayo festival'' in Mexico with a circus show of her own creation: "Las Gueras".
In the summer of 2012, she is approached by photographers to star in a circus photo shoot. Laury-Ann instantly falls for the camera. She follows up by doing many contracts, including a martial arts promotion. Today, she is part of the circus trio: "Les Echappés..." and the "hand to hand" duo: "Duo Parallèle" which take her around the world. Finally, Laury-Ann is not only a circus performer, but she's also a personal online trainer on social media. She created the training concept: "Short and Sweat" in her Facebook group, where she helps people worldwide to take better care of their shape.
