Evan was born in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, on the eighteenth of June, 1993 to his loving and excited parents, Andrea and Jonathan. He grew up in the suburbs in a relatively small house, along with his parents and his grandparents.
Growing up, Evan spent a lot of time with his grandparents -- referred to by him (and often his parents) as mémère and pépère. They were often the kind but old-fashioned sort, pépère always a little more laid-back than his wife. They'd bicker often, but it was all good-natured, and as Evan grew up, he grew very close to them. Mémère always got on her husband's case about his constant smoking (which, thankfully, occurred outside of the house and away from the lungs of Evan and, eventually, his little sister Jaime). Evan picked up on his grandmother's campaigning and often joined her in nagging, but to no avail. This is why Evan was heartbroken when his grandfather, only in his seventies, started to deteriorate in health thanks to lung cancer. He died when Evan was 12. The usually cheerful house was dreary and grey for a number of months following pépère's death.
Evan's parents enrolled him in dance - jazz and tap, to begin with, but he immediately preferred jazz and eventually dropped tap - at a young age, as a way to 'do something about all that energy'. This was after trying a few kinds of sports, only to have Evan wander off in the outfield or get distracted in the goalie net. He took to dance, as they say, like a fish to water, and has stuck with it to this day. He's won awards in several competitions across Quebec, and has travelled across Canada once or twice for group competitions. He's grown extremely passionate about it, and it shows that Evan throws his emotions headfirst into his dancing.
Evan's sister, Jaime, was born when Evan was four, and he absolutely adored her. He played with her, tried to teach her how to dance (to some avail) and occasionally wanted to smother her with a pillow. So, generally a normal sibling relationship.
He progressed through school pretty normally. He attended an all-French school, and insisted on extra English tutoring on the side -- if he was going to dance in other provinces, maybe even other countries, English would be necessary. He wanted to learn it, anyway, despite the pressures of Quebecois separatists all over -- his grandparents being two of them.
