Camille Bourgeois

Guest Artist

Camille grew up in Houston at Houston Ballet Academy, where she entered the main school division at seven years old. In the academy, she performed in various classical works including Konservatoriet by A. Bournonville, Les Sylphides by M. Fokine, and Stanton Welch's The Ladies and Studies. She also trained in character, jazz, and musical theatre, performing excerpts from Godspell, West Side Story, Chicago, and Liza with a Z. 

Camille has had the privilege of working with and learning from artists such as Gabriel Speiller, Maleek Washington, Troy Ogilvie, Hailey Von Schlehenried, Cristie Partelow, Madison Hicks, Sidra Bell, and Kevin Parjarillaga. She attended multiple movement research workshops with Moving Forward Dance and was awarded a scholarship for “excellence and dedication throughout.” Additionally, Camille has taken classes throughout Europe. She joined 6 o’Clock Dance Theatre as a Dancer in 2020, with whom she has performed works by Zach Ingram and various artists at several festivals and venues throughout Dallas. Recently, Camille toured in Halycon show’s production of Aureum and performed with the Bombshell Dance Project. 

Camille graduated from Southern Methodist University with two B.S. degrees in Biology and Sociology, and a minor in Chemistry. At SMU, she was a Faith and Learning scholar, a member of the pre-health honor society, and held various leadership positions including VP of external communications for MEDLife, Dance Marathon Recruitment team benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and more. Creative processes including assisting a musical theatre program for adults with disabilities and movement disorders opened her eyes to the power of art as a platform for connection and innovation. Striving for excellence in artistic and scientific pursuits, Camille plans on going to medical school and hopes to advocate for art in clinical medicine, research, and community engagement.
