Luke Thomas

Tissu (Advanced), Foot Juggling

TISSU (Advanced)
The lesson will predominantly focus on numerous dynamic movements on tissu (such as pirouettes etc.) and also touch on some interesting shapes within the silk and a couple of bigger drops.

FOOT JUGGLING (Beginner – Intermediate)
This lesson will teach the basic fundamentals of foot juggling with the cylinder (trunka) being the prop. For those who may have done foot juggling before we can expand on skills and learn a couple new more whilst refining technique.

As a child, Luke was always driven to pursue an acrobatic career. He was constantly found upside down and swinging on the Hills Hoist in his backyard. At age 11, he joined Circus 35° South, and trained aerials, tumbling and manipulation with them for 7 years before accepting a coveted place into the bachelor course at the National Institute of Circus Arts Australia. During his three years at NICA, Luke has specialised in tissu, foot juggling and group acrobatics. As a result of his meticulous attitude, Lukes work combines ethereal skills, sublime movement and artistic integrity. He is diligent as a creator, knows his limits and is autonomous.
