Focusing on Plan A with Janick Arseneau
Born in New-Brunswick, Canada, Janick Arseneau started dance at the young age of 3yrs old. The dance studio was a place where she always felt at home. She took every class of every style that was given and always knew she wanted to keep dancing and make a living with her passion. Janick has accomplished many goals that she’s set for herself, one of them being So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 3. Not only did she accomplish that goal, but I finish as a finalist – Top 4.
Janick worked the videogame ‘The Micheal Jackson The Experience’ from Ubisoft with the Kinect for the Xbox 360 choreographed by Steve Bolton; assisted alongside Megan Lawson (FanyPack) and Phil ‘Packman’ Shbeeb (IamMe) for the Micheal Jackson The Immortal Tour from Cirque du Soleil choreographed by NappyTabs; she danced in the movie ‘Mirror Mirror’ featuring stars such as Julia Roberts; Nathan Lane; danced in the movie ‘Make your move 3D’ choreographed by NappyTabs, directed by Duane Adler and starring Derek Hough and BoA; was on America’s Best Dance Crew Season 7 with Irratik; danced for Ceelo Green, Def Leppard, Melissa Etheridge and Kelly Clarkson on the Quebec version of the hit TV show The Voice (La Voix); danced on the Bell Center stage for signer Marie-Mai and danced in the movie Step Up 5 : All In.
She is now living in Los Angeles and accomplished her biggest goal yet. She is dancing with Jennifer Lopez in her three year residency show in Las Vegas at the Axis theatre in Planet Hollywood.
Even though Janick has accomplished so many of her dreams, her goals do not stop there. She believe that as a dancer and as a person, there always is more that can be learn and achieve, and one should never settle. If you can dream it, then it can become a reality.
