Tom Swords , “Raven” – Fan Dance: Drag Burlesque
Tom comes from a dance and acrobatic background. Started playing with fans at the end of last year to look for any excuse to show off what he can do. He breaks his way into the burlesque scene with a twisted take on burlesque and drag. Raven (his burlesque character) was created for a show he did called “Bathtub Gin”.
“Little Foot Big Foot” (Ollie Versteegen, Stephanie Lewis) - Human Foot Juggling/Risley
This Duo has been working together for nearly three years, on the amazing art of human foot juggling. Ollie will lie on his back, as he flips Stephanie into the air with his feet! Watch this marvelous display of skill and gravity-defying stunts with awe!
Robyn Glowacki – Aerial Hoop
Coming from an extensive dance and pole background, Robyn’s movements are both beautifully poised, and physically powerful. She contorts and stretches her legs in beautiful shapes on the spinning aerial hoop.

Simon Wright – Diablo
