STUDIO DIRECTOR/OWNER

Hi I am Christine Harrison and I am the owner/director H4L Dance Company located at 87-B Brunswick Blvd in the West Island. When it comes to hip hop, jazz, ballet and other styles there is only one place to chose ... H4L, bringing families together in a fun, active, affordable environment.

mel

I’m Mel and proud to say I’ve been with the H4L family since the beginning. My passion for dancing and teaching started over 20yrs ago. I’ve had the pleasure of winning the world hip hop championships twice with all girl crew Extreme, work for cirque du soleil choreographer Debra Brown and take part in many Galas. I teach a little of everything from HipHop to acro and to all ages!

sarah

Sarah Steben is a Montreal based dancer and instructor who began her career at the age of 15 years old. Her passion for dance developed throughout her time dancing at Studio A. During her time here she became a member of the two-time world Hip Hop champion crew Extreme which allowed her the opportunity to travel to various cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, New York City, Toronto, Quebec City and Bremen Germany, to showcase and compete.I don't like to use counts when I teach, I prefer using animal sounds ... meow.

jess

My name is Jess Cummings and although I live in LA, when I come home to Montreal, I teach competitive teams at H4L. I have worked with The Alliance, Intrinsic and Rise, and it’s always a pleasure working with dancers who are so dedicated to their craft. I’ve been working at H4L for over 5 years and have known Christine Harrison for over 15 years. Fun fact; we have traveled to over 5 countries competing and dancing together including Japan, Lebanon, Germany and the US.

Hi, I'm Allanna aka Banana! I've been teaching at H4L since 2011. Having started with just 1 Intro Ballet class, watching the technical program grow over the past 8 seasons has been amazing! I teach ballet, jazz, contemporary and hip hop of all ages. I love watching dancers grow and find their confidence all while sharing my passion for dance. I am so happy to be part of the H4L team as a coach, teacher and dancer.

Yo! I’m Amber and I teach hip hop here at H4L. I teach as young as two up to as old as a client can be! I enjoy teaching all ages but the Hip Hop Tots are my favourite! (Idk if I can say that haha) This is my sixth year teaching at the studio and my fourth year coaching! When I’m not teaching, sleeping or eating I sing non-stop, which is why in the next year I’ll be starting my adventure down that road! My ultimate goal in life is to play Mimi from RENT on Broadway.
