About us

A word about our dance studio

Studio de danse Imperium is composed of passionate teachers and a management team striving together to provide a place where dancers can thrive, grow and be part of a supportive dance family with whom they will create amazing and lasting memories of their time at the Studio.

Studio de danse Imperium is a welcoming and open-minded dance studio where dancers have the opportunity to learn from talented teachers and choreographers and explore different styles of dance. It’s a place where beginner, intermediate, advanced, competitive as well as semi-pro dancers are all equally welcome. This wonderful adventure started in July 2013 and has been evolving and rapidly growing ever since.

Our history

2013

In 2013, on a sunny spring day, in a small coffee shop in the West Island of Montreal, Christine and Véronique made a decision that would change their lives and the lives of many dancers: They would partner up to create a truly welcoming and motivating dance studio where children, teenagers and adults alike would feel free to be themselves in the wonderful world of dance!

A few months later, their dream became a reality when Studio de danse Imperium opened its doors. The success of its first season, with 75 dancers training in 3 different locations in the West Island, showed the co-founders just how much potential their project truly had.

2014

In May of 2014, they then secured a lease at 1430 Hymus Boulevard where they built 4 spacious dance studios as well as a warm and welcoming waiting room for the dancers and their families. Little did they know at that moment that they were creating their favourite place in the whole world!

In 2018, a wonderful collaboration was created with Jonathan-Wilson Elementary School as well as École Secondaire Des Sources and John Rennie High School in the form of a Dance-Concentration program under the Sport-Études umbrella. With this program, Studio de danse Imperium is able to welcome students from these schools in its studios every weekday afternoon, from 1 to 4 p.m.
