Nathalie Yves Gaulthier
“We fly half way around the world just to work with Nathalie and her coaches!” -Jordan Adams, Australia
Born in a small fishing village in Gaspe, Quebec, then raised in Iqaluit, N.W.T (right below Greenland), Nathalie Yves Gaulthier spent most of her childhood a blonde-green eyed minority raised amongst Inuits/(Eskimos). By age 10, she was fluent in her native French, Inuit, then English.
She wrote her first play at age 7 “Blue Christmas”, and was featured on CBC radio as a young upcoming writer and director. From ages 10 to her 20s, Nathalie was a known face in the Quebec Television world, appearing as a regular on numerous TV series and singing on children’s records. She had several lead roles in English films and guest stared on numerous US television series. During this time, she was also a competitive gymnast, studied aerial/circus arts and won national Public speaking contests across Canada, in her third language!
Nathalie began her first kids' talent agency when she herself was just a kid at 15 years old. Her clients went on to be Emmy and Oscar nominated actors and film makers, to international humanitarians and dance school owners like herself. Her years of working with kids, pushing them hard, believing in them, yet demanding their absolute best at all times was the key to help them achieve their dreams.
She moved to Los Angeles in 1997 as the first Canadian agent to ever open offices in the US while simultaneously operating Canadian offices as well. She launched numerous young stars in Hollywood shortly thereafter and has been known as “the kid it girl” in the entertainment industry ever since.
A former Canadian gymnast and a flying trapeze artist with Main Space Circus in Toronto, Nathalie trained with Bob Yerkes, Wini McKay and internationally to fine tune her skills.
In recent years, Nat has been making a difference with her inspirational children's programs. She opened Le Studio LA in 2010 with a vision to inspire youths and utilize their gifts to make the world a better place. The professional team, Le PeTiT CiRqUe®, is the world's only all-kid humanitarian cirque company and has mesmerized numerous audiences worldwide with their talents. Nat believes in fostering programs for today's youth in order to give them a supportive environment in which to thrive and be themselves, while spreading the message of love, kindness and understanding.
