In Dance 100, Netflix’s latest unscripted dance reality show, several dancers and choreographers compete for a $100,000 reward by performing and choreographing shows with large groups of expert dancers.
Janick Arseneau, who recently appeared on So You Think You Can Dance Canada, is one of the candidates on the program. She co-founded Bee-Yond Belief, a ballet school in Montreal. Dance 100’s season debut will air on Netflix on Friday, March 17 at 3:01 a.m. ET.
Janick Arseneau, a Dance 100 contestant, began performing at the age of three.
One of eight candidates who will compete in Dance 100, Janick Arseneau previously appeared on Season 3 of So You Think You Can Dance Canada in 2010. She placed fourth and was awarded $5,000. The Dance 100 competitor is from Bathurst and began performing at the age of three, when she began formal lessons until she was 18. According to Arseneau’s website, ballet has always been a part of her life and has helped her through difficult moments.
According to its website:
“I always wanted to be an accomplished artist. When I was younger one of my biggest dreams was to be a part of So You Think You Can Dance Canada. I knew my chances of success were limited because I came from a small community.”
Janick was aware that she had to take ‘big steps’ and she was always aware of her goals. She moved to Montreal after graduating from high school, leaving her friends and family behind to get a job as a professional recording artist. The Dance 100 artist has previously appeared as a dancer in the video game The Michael Jackson: The Experience and as an assistant on Micheal Jackson’s The Immortal Tour with Cirque du Soleil, both of which were directed by NappyTabs. She was previously seen as a performer in Julia Roberts’ Mirror Mirror and Make Your Move 3D. Janick later starred in season 7 of America’s Best Dance Crew and was one of the performers in Step Up 5: All In.
Her profile also states:
“I now live in Los Angeles and have achieved my biggest goal yet. As my first work in the United States, I’m performing with Jennifer Lopez on her three-year engagement performance at the Axis venue at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
She has previously performed with CeeLo Green, Def Leppard, Melissa Etheridge, Kelly Clarkson, Marie-Mai and others.
The Dance 100 competitor starred in Jennifer Lopez’s Ain’t Your Mama, Dinero, El Anillo and Limitless, and performed with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson at the MTV Movie Awards, Hailee Steinfeld at the RDMAs and Rihanna at the VMAs.
According to her biography:
“While I have achieved so many of my aspirations, my goals don’t stop there. I think as an artist and as a person there is always more to learn and achieve and you should never compromise. If you can imagine it, you can make it a fact.”
She will now join Netflix’s Dance 100, which will hit the streaming platform on Friday, March 17 at 3:01 a.m. ET.
