Robert Meilleur began his contemporary dance career in Montreal, with choreographers Hélène Blackburn and Martine Époque. He then spent three years in Calgary, where he acted, choreographed, and taught dance. In 1991, he returned to Montreal and joined O Vertigo, dancing in Train d’enfer, La Chambre blanche, and Déluge. In 1995, Robert Meilleur went back to performing as an independent dancer for choreographers William Douglas, Benoît Lachambre, José Navas, Sacha Waltz, and Jean-Pierre Perreault, among others. During these years, he worked particularly closely with Isabelle Van Grimde and Paul-André Fortier. He was also rehearsal master for Van Grimde Corps Secrets and, on occasion, for Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe. Robert Meilleur rejoined O Vertigo in 2004, the year of Passare.
