Born and raised in Ottawa, Alexandre first got involved in choreographed dance when living in Japan for a year in 2011-2012. He joined a dance troupe of Yosakoi dancers, a traditional form of Japanese dance. After returning from Japan, he longed to be part of a dance troupe again, and soon discovered Culture Shock.
Being somewhat unfamiliar with Hip Hop choreographies, he made it a goal to quickly improve his capacities in this genre and became a member of Culture Shock just a few months later. With hard work and dedication, he became co-artistic director within one year of joining the troupe! He attests that it's thanks to the support of his family, friends and most importantly his dance peers that he's been able to accomplish so much in such little time.
As a full-time employee for the federal government, he is grateful that his career offers a great work-life balance so that he can also find time to enjoy his newfound passion in dance. Despite his age, he shows no sign of letting up, and takes pride in being a member of the Culture Shock organization.
