Alain Bernard Charron was born April 13, 1959 in Hamilton, Ontario. She studied music history and performance at Camrose Lutheran College, where he played the trombone with the Camrose Brass Quintet. He also competed in figure skating. He began his dance training at the Dance Centre in Ottawa and with La Groupe de la Place Royale. He spent four months at York University beginning in the Fall of 1978 studying choreography, ballet and modern dance. He entered the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Professional Division in 1979. He was made an apprentice to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet during the 1981-1982 season. The following year, he became a member of the corps de ballet. He left in 1986 to pursue a career in choreography. That year, he formed a partnership with RWB choreographer Sandra Neels known as Choreo/graphics and produced its first performance in June of 1986 in which he also choreographed Who Most Shall Advance The Light.
