Adam Sergison

Biography

Adam is an original member of the cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Wizard of Oz", that just completed it's premiere North American tour. Since his return, he's been teaching classes in Toronto with the goal of raising the next generation into strong artists. His classes connect strong technique with artistry and performance and dancers can expect to be challenged with new ways of movement and emotional delivery.

Although Adam was accepted into the prestigious Ryerson University BFA (dance) program and awarded the President's Scholarship, he elected to immediately pursue a professional career and was first cast as a dancer in Disney's Camp Rock alongside the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato. Later that year, at just 18 years old he became the youngest cast member of the hit musical, Queen's "We Will Rock You" (Mirvish). Many stage and screen opportunities followed including "9 to 5: The Musical" (Drayton), "The Wizard of Oz" (Drayton), "West Side Story" (Vancouver Opera and Neptune), "Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars (Disney) and "Peter Pan" (Neptune).

Adam was thrilled to perform in a lead role as Tadzio in the Canadian Opera Company's critically acclaimed production of "Death in Venice" at the prestigious Four Season Opera House in Toronto. His strong technique and dance skills were also put to use performing as Mr. Mistoffeelees in "Cats" (Rainbow Stage). In 2012, Adam was honoured to be part of the original cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Wizard of Oz", produced by Mirvish Entertainment, The Really Useful Group and Troika Entertainment, at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto. 

His talents as a choreographer have been utilized by dance studios and ballet academies across the nation as well as a guest teacher for workshops and summer intensives. He has also choreographed pieces for Toronto's Bazaar and Toronto's Original Choreographer's Ball. 

Dance, stage and screen have given Adam many memorable experiences including assisting Mia Michaels on the set of "So You Think You Can Dance Canada", performing on New Year's Eve for millions at Nathan Phillips Square and being electrocuted on the "Carrie" movie set.
