Achievements

Studio de danse Imperium is very proud of the following awards and achievements from these past few years.

Isabelle at Revolution

The Imperium Family is so proud of Isabelle Rochette, dancer and teacher at Studio de danse Imperium, for her selection on the 4th season of the television show Revolution! It was beautiful to watch Isabelle shine on the screen up until the “faces-à-faces”. What an inspiration for our students!

HIT THE FLOOR SHOWCASE FINALISTS

In June 2022, one of our teams, “Happy”, was selected for the Hit the Floor Gatineau All-Star Showcase. Being selected for this showcase (top 8 of the entire competition) was one of our biggest goals as a studio. Achieving this with a tap group is a great source of pride. We would like to congratulate Christine DeGrâce, the choreographer and teacher of “Happy”, for this accomplishment!

National Dance School of Canada

On April 4th, 2022, Studio de danse Imperium’s directors and founders, Christine Langston and Véronique Sévigny-Leclerc announced their partnership with Sonia Clarke, a teacher at the studio as well as the proud founder of the National Dance School of Canada (ÉNDC). This 3 year professional education program for young adults will be offered during the day in Imperium’s facilities starting in September 2022. Sonia Clarke is the ideator and Artistic Director, Christine is the Director of Finances and Véronique is the Marketing Director of this new school.

RECIPIENT FUN TEACHER AWARD

In December 2021, at the first edition of the Gala du Réseau d’Enseignement de la Danse du Québec, one of our teachers, Lia Campo, won the 2021 Fun Teacher Award. Lia earned this honorable mention for all the effort she put into her virtual classes during the pandemic. As a preschool dance teacher, Lia surprised us every Sunday morning when she turned on her camera! She took the time to decorate her house differently each week and to dress up. Children participated exceptionally well because of all the special activities and themes she incorporated. We congratulate Lia for bringing smiles to the children’s faces during these more difficult times and for exceeding all our expectations! An article was written about it on the Réseau d’Enseignement de la Danse du Québec website.

CEOS OF THE YEAR AWARD

Véronique and Christine were extremely honoured to receive, in January of 2020, in Las Vegas, the prestigious CEOs of the Year award, presented by the Dance Studio Owner’s Association, an international organization of hundreds of dance studios across the world. They wish to share this award with every teacher and administration personnel of the Studio. 2019 was an amazing year of changes, adaptations and innovations at Studio de danse Imperium!

Global News conducted an interview on the subject.

DANCE DADS

In 2019, Studio de danse Imperium had an idea: to create a pre-competitive team exclusively composed of dance dads! Thirteen men answered the call and are now part of the Studio de danse Imperium’s Kingsmen team! CTV News conducted an interview on the subject.

4 TIMES SHOWCASE FINALISTS

In 2019, being Studio de danse Imperium’s sixth season of competition, four of its dance numbers were ranked Showcase Finalist in large-scale competitions (ranked among the best numbers of the competition). One of these numbers, “Imperium Leviosa”, a choreography by Julie Goldenberg recounting the Harry Potter saga and featuring some twenty Imperium dancers, won the Production of the year award at the 5678 Showtime competition in Mont-Tremblant. You may watch this memorable number here.

LE P’TIT CABARET

For a second consecutive year, in 2019, Studio de danse Imperium dancers performed at the Le p’tit cabaret television show, hosted by Mario Tessier. It was certainly an amazing experience for our dancers!
