La La La Human Steps was a Québécois contemporary dance group in Canada, active between 1980 and 2015, known for its energetic, acrobatic style involving fast-paced and athletic physical contact. Its signature move was the barrel jump - a gravity-defying, fully horizontal, mid-air barrel roll.
The first mention of the group in the New York Times, after the premiere of Human Sex, stated:
The troupe collaborated with rock musicians, including David Bowie, David Lang, Frank Zappa, Skinny Puppy,Stephen Luscombe, Pandit Dinesh,Asha Bhosle (West India Company) Einstürzende Neubauten, Kevin Shields, David Van Tieghem, Carole Laure, Priya Khajuria, Michel Cusson and Alain Bertrand. It was formed in 1980 by Édouard Lock under the name Lock-Danseurs and showcased for many years Louise Lecavalier. The group appeared regularly in its hometown of Montreal, Quebec, and all over the world.
On 2 September 2015 Lock announced that the company had been disbanded owing to insurmountable financial difficulties.
