Nico Archambault - So You Think You Can Dance Canada 2008

Nico Archambault

Age: 23
Occupation: Dancer/Choreographer
Hometown: Montreal
Audition City: Montreal
Place of Birth: Montreal
Nickname: Nico
Favourite Style of Dance: Contemporary and Hip-Hop
Signature Dance Move: “From a handstand, I push back on my hands, roll onto my stomach and press back up on the top of my feet.”
Couldn’t Live Without: “A book.”
Motto: “The Red Queen’s Hypothesis: It takes all the running you can do to stay in the same place.”

Hailing from Longueuil, Quebec, dancer/choreographer Nico Archambault refused to let naysayers stop him from pursuing his passion for dance. “Despite the fact that I was told to forget about it – that I would never make it – I never stopped doing what I thought was right.” He feels his ability to “adapt to different styles, energy and vibes” helped him land a spot in the Top 20 for So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

Although Nico has been studying dance at Cégep du Vieux Montréal, the dance world is not his sole source of inspiration. Groundbreaking rock ‘n’ roll acts such as Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Pink Floyd are some of the artists he deems as “genius.”

Nico finds the camaraderie amongst dancers the most surprising part of his So You Think You Can Dance Canada experience. Wary of competition, he is touched to be surrounded by like-minded contestants who, as he says, “all came here for the love of dance, and were willing to help everyone as much as they could.”

As a longtime dancer, Nico is used to the physical intensity of competing. He has found waiting to be his biggest challenge, “because when you wait, you have the time to think, and with the thinking comes the doubting…”

Nico feels that winning So You Think You Can Dance Canada will require a great deal of hard work, determination and showmanship on his part. When asked what viewers can expect when they see him perform in the Top 20, Nico promises “passion, energy, entertainment and honesty…all this with a sexy vibe I guess!”

  • Josie Lalonde

    Nico is no Michael Jackson. Lots of young people can dance as well as Nico or better. He should put his money into an excellent education engineering degree or business degree. I’m a dancer from National Ballet and it’s a lot of money and VERY hard work. We only have one principal ballet Rex Harrington should have told you how much work their is to learn the dance world. Nico drive safely in your car.I mean only the best for a good looking young man named Nico Archambault.

  • esse

    My first time to see you Nico was during the final competition and my heart skipped a beat and diaphoretic. I asked myself who is this guy? I have to rewind the recorded show just to make sure I see every inch of you in the dance floor. You are an art masterpiece that I want to paint and sculpture,..but the dance…the dance…makes you an active volcano too hot even to look at or touch except in my fantasy. Go and dance you are born for it.
