Who is Erika Lemay?
Erika Lemay is best known for her appearance on AGT Extreme, and starring in numerous Cirque du Soleil events. Cirque du Soleil is an entertainment company, and the largest circus producer in the world, so this is a huge achievement for Erika.
Hailing from Quebec, Canada, Erika will be turning 39 on the 23rd of March 2022. She has always been interested in entertaining, as she began ballet at four years old.
She has won the hearts of viewers all over the world with her insane talent and physical poetry. Before her appearance on the show, Erika was nominated as the New Queen of Circus by Vanity Fair.
Erika Lemay: LEMAlab
Alongside her career in the entertainment industry, Erika is also the founder of a health and wellness company.
Erika explained on the website that due to spending decades training eight hours per day and spending most of her time in pain, she “deep-dived into everything there is to know about the human body, hormone secretion for recovery and flexibility, and lifestyle hacks that could give me the best chance at an elite and long-lasting career.”
She found that Collagen peptides became a great tool, and was able to use LEMAlab to create these products and put them on the market whilst maintaining high ethical and quality standards.
