The great Chinese philosopher Confucius said that if you choose a job you love you’ll never have to work a day in your life.
For Marie-Josée Corriveau, a young lady from Litchfield, the adage is more of a reflection of reality than a lofty aspiration. As a professional dancer, she has appeared on stages from Montreal to Mumbai doing everything from music videos to musicals.
The 23-year-old grew up with eight siblings and started dancing at her family’s studio, The Corriveau School of Dance, when she was four.
