Lisa Auguste

Age: 27
Occupation: Dancer/Performer
Hometown: Rexdale, Ontario
Audition City: Toronto
Place of Birth: Toronto

Favourite Style of Dance: Contemporary/Hip-Hop

Couldn’t Live Without: “Mascara; Paper and a pen.”
Motto: “If you can believe it, you can conceive it.”

Lisa Auguste was bitten with the dance bug early. She started dancing at the age of three, training in jazz, tap, ballet, acrobatics, hip-hop, modern and contemporary. She considers her commitment and love of dance as her biggest accomplishment, and she’s determined to always keep dancing. “I have not stopped, can’t stop, won’t stop – I’m still evolving.”

Lisa is a graduate of Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts, and the Canadian Aesthetics Academy. Currently living in Rexdale, Ontario, Lisa is excited to represent her community “with poise and grace.”

Upon learning she made it into the So You Think You Can Dance Canada Top 20, Lisa couldn’t help but feel “sheer joy, relief and the anticipation of a new beginning.” Relying on the support of her family, Lisa knows she’ll have to give it her all to make it in the competition. “I gotta live it and bring it!”

Lisa is inspired by choreographer Mia Michaels, also a choreographer on the U.S. version So You Think You Can Dance, citing Mia’s class as the best she’s ever taken. “I was 14, attending a class at the Broadway Dance Centre in New York, and a sub came in for Frank Hachet.” To her surprise, it was Mia Michaels. “It was my first class with her and I fell in love.”

Lisa hopes to create her own dance career path, filled with success, excitement and growth. “And there’s never a shortage of inspiration… our judges are just one example.” Along that path, Lisa would love to work with Mia Michaels, or the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.

Her advice for other So You Think You Can Dance Canada hopefuls? “Learn how to take criticism as graciously as you do compliments, and try not to compare yourself to others.” Above all, Lisa’s key recommendation is to “always remind yourself why you love to dance.”

    dear lisa,
    I have many questions amd comments. but the most inportant of all my comments or questions is this
    :were you or are you at any time a man aka male. I ask this question because i think you look very mannish. Also because on time when you were lifted on the show I am 100% sure that i saw your ding-aling. It was flapping wildly all over the place and it turned me
    on
