The Academy is South-Western Ontario‘s regional circus hub, linking London with the wider Canadian and global arts communities. We are London’s premier circus training facility, specializing in acrobatics, aerial arts and circus.
The Academy was founded by Meaghan Wegg (Dip. Circus Performance, Dip. Circus Trainer); École Nationale de Cirque graduate as both a performer and coach, ex. Cirque du Soleil aerial hoop artist, artistic coach, and creator of the globally-offered Aerial Arts hoop syllabus.
Our team of coaches offers technique classes for the beginner to the elite athlete. Students can also audition for our competitive and performance teams, opening up opportunities to perform in competitions and events.
The Academy also houses a full-sized stage where students can rehearse and perform!
Safety and the well being of our students is our priority. Our building structure has been analyzed and certified by an engineering firm. Permanent metal fixtures were designed by an engineer and fabricated/installed by CWB-certified welders. Our rigging systems were installed by an entertainment 'rigging' company that services Cirque du Soleil.
We are dedicated to providing a positive and supportive training environment where students can learn, grow, have fun and be safe.
New in 2021 - The Academy now has an on-site Sports Physiotherapy practice for dancers and acrobats!
A program designed for you and your little one to learn acrobatics, circus and dance together right from the beginning!
The Academy's program is designed to promote excellence in our students' acrobatic ability in the air and on the ground. Technique classes available in all disciplines.
