Nicolas Archambault was the first of four children. He started dancing as a young 7 year old, with a dance teacher Louise Lapierre, where all his sisters also learned dancing. He was traumatized for being ridiculed as the only male student in the class. While in Antoine-de-Saint-Exupéry Secondary School in Saint-Léonard, a suburb of Montreal, Quebec, he registered for dance classes and was taunted, intimidated and ostracized by the male students for being "gay". In addition to growing up too fast for his age, he also suffered from Osgood–Schlatter disease. His childhood suffering prompted him in his successful years to remain very active in fighting bullying in schools.

BY age 14, he was already involved in public performances and at 19 studied dance at LADMMI, the Montreal school of contemporary dance affiliated with Cégep du Vieux Montréal. While a student, he was offered a position as a freestyle dancer at the popular Quebec game show La Fureur where he worked for 5 years. During this period, he also took part in a number of musical shows including Elvis Story, in Night Fever, in Joe Dassin - La grande fête musicale[1] and in a lyrical version of the rock opera Starmania. He was also an assistant to the choreographer Brian Friedman.
