Benoit Papineau

Benoit has been a feature in the ballroom dance world for over 40 years. A former Canadian and North American Standard Champion and a former World Standard Dance Semi-Finalist, he has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge and experience which he now happily shares with his students. Part of Moveir's coaching team since 2013, Benoit provides private lessons by appointment and offers workshops in Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, and Quickstep throughout the year.

A firm believer in continuous learning, Benoit's current focus is the anatomical and biomechanical basis of natural movement. Additionally, he is exploring how a dancer's interpretation of music affects physical structure and ultimately produces effortless movement.
