A New Beginnings

It was in September of 1985 that Christiane opened her dance school in the city of her childhood - the Centre de danse Primeau Poirier: Accueil. That same year, André Poirier, a world-class dancer at the time, became more than a friend. The couple than began their story together as life and business partners.

The passion for dance has passed from one generation to the next as Vanessa and Virginie, André and Christiane's two daughters, themselves became Canadian Women's Dance Champions. They are now very active in the running of the dance studio.
