Justin Dale

Level 2 Coach

Justin Dale began his career as a competitive Tae-Kwon Do fighter and Musical Theatre Actor, choreographing fight scenes and stage stunts. At 15 he discovered fire performing and circus and would never look back. Justin started Cyr Wheel in 2009 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, teaching himself to spin on a 4×4 slat of plywood. In 2010 he auditioned for the National Circus School in Montreal and was accepted for the DEC program (somehow, he’s still not sure why) After three years with the finest coaches, Justin graduated in 2014 and has been working internationally as a performer and coach. In 2016 he won the Wheel Gymnastics World Championship for Team Canada. Justin now performs for companies around the world, and runs 2 companies of his own; Justin Dale Performance and Le
Cirque de la Nuit.

Justin’s philosophy of cyr wheel is to push the limits of what is possible, yet believes that there will never be an end to the creative power that comes from the global community of wheelers. Outside of the circus, Justin enjoys DJing, historical fencing and brewing meads and beers.
