YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWCvcgAMU1NR5oRnAt8vG6g Brandon Croisetiere began dancing at the age of 11 in Gatineau, Quebec where he trained in all disciplines of dance (jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, acro, hip-hop and contemporary). He quickly fell in love with the art and competed extensively, traveling all over North America winning major titles and overalls at regional and national competitions. Brandon was a constant convention scholarship winner at The Pulse, Jump, Candance Convention, Coastal Dance Rage and Impact. He completed his competitive career with the Canadian School of Dance where he was trained with the Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers (ADAPT) syllabus created by Brian and Faye Foley as well as the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) ballet. Brandon was fortunate enough to work closely with New York City Choreographer Derrick Yanford (FOOTLOOSE, WEST SIDE STORY, BALLET HISPANICO) as a founding member of his company “Bridge Dance Concepts” in Ottawa. Shortly after, Brandon moved to Toronto to further his career in dance. Since moving he has been able to perform choreography by Matthew Fata, Josh Assor, Alvin Collantes, Shawn Bracke and Allison Bradley in events such as Toronto’s Original Choreographer’s Ball, Bazaar, Poetry Resurrected, Raise the Rhythm and Short Dances in Small Spaces to name a few. More recently, Brandon became a member of Point of View Dance Project, a contemporary company under the artistic direction of Amy Adams and Kylie Thompson. Brandon has also assisted New York City choreographer Tom Richardson (Faculty of Intrigue Dance Convention) on numerous occasions. Brandon is also an award winning choreographer and teacher. He is guest faculty at The Underground Dance Centre in Toronto and KaliAndrews Dance Company in Ottawa. He has taught many workshops, technique classes and at many summer intensives throughout Quebec and Ontario. Brandon’s unique sense of style, creativity, intricate movement, musicality and his power to create beautiful captivating stories within his choreography has won him multiple choreography awards at Regional and Nationals Competitions such as American Dance Awards, Kick It Up, Shine, Thunderstruck, Move, and Candance. Being recognized for his work starting at the tender age of 17, Brandon has grown into a creative genius and sought after by many competitive studios throughout Canada, giving them a unique, fresh edge to the dance scene. Being a driven performer and distinct, unique, captivating choreographer has allowed Brandon to continuously push his boundaries and explore all sorts of movement and styles. His biggest wish is to continuously motivate and inspire his dancers by being a positive role model and sharing all of the knowledge he has gained since entering the dance industry.

Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context. It is a popular dance style in amateur competitive dance as well as in professional dance theater and in contemporary circus productions such as those by Cirque du Soleil. Acro is an especially challenging dance style for dancers as it requires them to be trained in both dance and acrobatic skills. Acro dancers must be in excellent physical condition as well, because acro is a physically demanding activity. Teacher Info coming soon!

Contortion - Invitation Only

Contortion class is for the acrobat who wants to specialize in bending the body into unusual poses. In acrobatic dance, total control over one’s body throughout an extreme range of motion is required in order to master the necessary skills & tricks.

Participants will study contortion techniques and will focus on developing more strength and flexibility to support their tricks/skills. Contortion is not a performance based class, therefore the participants have the opportunity to continue their training for the full duration of each term.

Contortion class is for the acrobat who wants to specialize in bending the body into unusual poses. In acrobatic dance, total control over one’s body throughout an extreme range of motion is required in order to master the necessary skills & tricks. Our Contortion classes are designed for “extra bendy” individuals; upon entering our Contortion class, students have already nurtured their individual flexibility and will continue to enhance the beauty of bending. Participants will study contortion techniques and will focus on developing more strength and flexibility to support their tricks/skills. Contortion is not a performance based class, therefore the participants have the opportunity to continue their training for the full duration of each term.
