Vincent Warren is a man who has devoted his entire life to dance. It’s easy to throw around a phrase like that but there are few who have so thoroughly filled their lives with every aspect of dance: performance, study, teaching and mentorship, writing and collecting.

Vincent Warren’s Montreal apartment, which hosted so many dancers and dance professionals over the decades, was a little museum in itself – its shelves lined with books, photographs, statuettes and memorabilia; its walls adorned by paintings, posters and 8x10s given to Vincent by friends and colleagues over a lifetime in dance. In 2013, Vincent had to move from his apartment. Dance Collection Danse sent renowned photographer Michael Slobodian to record a moment in history, a life in dance … a personal collection.
