In 1977 Le Groupe relocated to Ottawa, where it established a school, studios and a performance series featuring both Le Groupe de la Place Royale and other dance companies, including Douglas Dunn and Marie CHOUINARD. Le Groupe performed at the NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE, toured, and presented residencies across Canada. Perrault left the company in 1981 to be replaced by Michael Montanaro, who was assistant artistic director from 1981 to 1985.
In 1988 Boneham changed the artistic mission of the company and transformed it into LE GROUPE DANCE LAB, an international centre for research and development of contemporary dance.
