Guillaume and Heather joined the National Ballet of Canada around the same time – in the late nineties, becoming Principal dancers in 2004 and 2005. And although they knew each other for years, it was not until many years later that they began dating.
Their “chemistry” was strong on stage, so Heather and Guilluame were paired for many lead roles – and the audience loved what they saw.
In 2006 the couple began dating then in 2009 Guilluame proposed to Heather on a bridge across from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. A year later, they were married in Toronto. Their first dance was to If This Is a Dream, which Côté, a musician and composer, wrote and recorded for her when they started dating. Guilluame continues to compose and now adds choreographer to his many talents.
Today, the couple look forward to spending time with family and enjoying each other in the studio. Their friendship and energy as a couple is infectious and their interview together purely inspirational (not to mention fun).
