This is Lift Acro Evolution

Reach Higher Grow Stronger

What started off as a love for gymnastics and dance, Lift has quickly evolved into exploring all things circus.  

We believe that our recreational students should have the chance to discover their hidden talents and develop them to their full potential, build lasting friendships, and most of all have fun!

For more serious students, Lift has developed a comprehensive training program that carries the Cirquekidz brand.  

Our NEW Pembroke location is 213-B Pembroke Street West 

Lots of public parking available.  Our front door faces Agnes street.
