Hi! I am Ingrid!

I play with purpose.

I am an energetic Guadeloupean who landed in Vancouver in 2017 with the desire to improve my English speaking skills through theatre and improv classes. Unable to find such a place, I created Griottes Polyglottes for those who enjoy learning by doing while having fun.

With a background as an actress back in France, I developed a creative and fun methodology to help newcomers, immigrants, and culturally diverse teams overcome shyness, boost confidence, increase a sense of belonging, and quickly learn a new language through role-playing and improvisation.

I also work closely with schools to highlight serious topics like fighting against racism, injustice, and exclusion.

And I... am... also a storyteller using French and Kreyol in my very interactive shows.

And I.... am... (sorry almost done) also a stage performer, I have performed in France and Africa but also in Canada for l'Alliance Française and Réseau Femmes.

I am regular performer at the Vancouver Playback Theater company.

When I'm not leading workshops, I get lost in the mountains of BC to recharge.

My clients and friends define me as energetic, hilarious, inspiring, and totally badass entrepreneur who proves that you can learn while having fun and making a difference in the world.

If you are like me and truly believe that learning can be fun, impactful, and transformative, send me a note and let's explore creative ways to work together.

What others say about us

Vanessa Lesperance, MA, GDBA 

Ingrid is awesome. She creates an inviting environment to learn and play. Her French workshop classes are fun, engaging and educational. I highly recommend her if you want to learn French, do team or community-building, or offer your employees/clients/members a unique program

Érika Tavernari

I worked with Ingrid on four different occasions and every time I was impressed with her ability to deal with children and adults of all ages. This skill is rare among professionals I've worked with, but it comes naturally to her. I highly recommend her services and workshops! 

Florence Sufen Kao, CCDP

Ingrid's language classes are for intermediate and advanced-level learners. The sessions focus on expressions, idioms, and daily activities in English or French with a touch of fun. We learn while making new friends and expressing ourselves via acting/impro after the long pandemic years.
