Dominique from Quebec and Martin form England met in Halifax, Nova Scotia while performing at a festival. This meeting inspired a whole story way too long for here. A story of exploration, learning and sharing. After performing for over twenty years in nearly every country in the world they joined forces as a performing duo, creating family shows and pursuing their dream to open their own Circus School. Investing in their future and that of the next generation they opened FLiP in the beautiful renovated church in Ste-Adèle. Come join the next chapter...
