German Wheel, Juggling, Plus Cubic, Banquine and Teeterboard
Frédéric Lemieux-Cormier grew up in the world of circus arts thanks to his mother, a costume designer for Cirque du Soleil. He caught “circus fever” as a child and started his formal training at age 12, then spent six years at the National Circus School in Montréal. There, he completed the Preparatory Program and the Circus and High School Studies program and then earned his Diploma of Collegial Studies in the School’s professional training program. His performance credits include three episodes of “La vie est un cirque” (Life is a Circus), a Canadian television program about world-class circus performers; “Défis des champions,” (Champions’ Challenge), a Canadian reality program; and live appearances on the circus show Bird House Factory. Although he is only 24, he has performed in special events for Cirque du Soleil and with Les 7 doigts de la main, and has been a member of the Haut-Vol and Il Circo companies. When not performing, Frédéric enjoys drawing and bicycling. He also talks to his German Wheel before every performance, to help it “de-stress” before the show!
