Janick dreamed of making it big in the industry and so they packed up and moved to Montreal. One of their main goals was to be on So You Think You Can Dance. After moving to Montreal, this became a reality. Janick appeared on the third season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada and placed in the top 4.

Janick called Dance 100 a ‘crazy journey’
In the lead-up to the release of Dance 100, cast member Janick Areseneau has been promoting the new Netflix talent show.
“I am so proud of this project,” Janick wrote in an Instagram post. “I can’t wait for everyone to see this crazy journey I was on and the magic we created together! The entire team was a dream team! I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to compete with.”
Janick’s soon-to-be wife is also a dance choreographer
Janick Arseneau is currently engaged to Hannah Pierre, a dancer, and choreographer.
In April 2022, Janick shared the happy news that they had popped the question to Hannah. Janick got down on one knee during one of their choreographed routines and asked Hannah to be their wife.
