Antoine Troupe on Superpeer
Choreographer, Trainer, Entrepreneur
Antoine Troupe is a renowned choreographer, trainer, and passionate advocate for the growth and success of dancers worldwide. Hailing from Fairfield, California, and now based in Los Angeles for over a decade, Antoine's journey began with a taste of the industry on Season 2 of America's Best Dance Crew. At 24, he moved to LA and enjoyed a successful but short dance career. He quickly stepped into choreographing and his first major choreography job was for none other than the legendary Prince. He also went on to choreograph for prominent artists like Chris Brown, Kehlani, Drake, Burna Boy, and Rosalia. However, Antoine realized that his true passion lay in helping others build their careers and transitioned his focus to teaching. Antoine gained an esteemed reputation teaching at major Los Angeles studios such as Millennium Dance Complex and Movement Lifestyle, traveling the world to share his expertise at leading hip-hop and commercial camps like Fairplay Dance Camp, Urban Dance Camp, and RioH2K. Alongside Kolanie Marks, he co-founded KreativMndz Elite, a dance training program that produced numerous successful working dancers. This program later evolved into KreativMndz Dance Academy, which quickly became the go-to training destination in LA before the COVID-19 pandemic forced its closure in 2020. Undeterred, Antoine launched his own brand and company, TROUPE, in 2021 to further develop and explore his unique, holistic training methods. Treating dancers like athletes, he is dedicated to advancing the dance community through TROUPE, with aspirations to become the leading brand specializing in dance training services, facilities, and products. Antoine's unwavering commitment to empowering dancers to thrive is the driving force behind his impressive career and the impact he continues to make in the world of dance.
