You should hire Thom Wall.”

“Thom celebrated all achievements of his cohort in a positive and sincere manner, and it was fantastic to see my colleagues have such an enriching experience. Thom’s honesty and generous manner endeared him to those who interacted with him and his ability to create and sustain a positive social relationship was reflective of the environment around him. Many of them have continued with juggling and have even started attending the weekly circus session that runs in the school for both staff and students.

His emceeing throughout the evening was one of the best seen on the convention’s stage for years. Thom knew how to present the artists in an interesting and amusing way and surprisingly combined appropriate expressions in the local language.
In addition, he performed several very impressive and beautifully clean pieces. His varied skills surprised many who had not yet encountered these props and techniques.
Dekel Azulay, Israeli Juggling Convention (Read the full letter here.)
“I would like to thank you especially for your many contributions to Festival presentations and events relating to the art of juggling, its history, and the roles that juggling and object manipulation play in circus-related communities globally. The program’s dedicated juggling venue enabled the public to meet and learn directly from master jugglers like you while also getting inspired to explore more because of the close-up opportunities offered through your engaging performances, too.
Thank you once again for your dedication to your craft and for working so diligently throughout the entire two-week Circus Arts program at the 2017 Smithsonian Folklife Festival to share the experience and expand the learning.”
Preston Scott, Director, 2017 Smithsonian Folklife Festival (read the full letter here.)
Thom was cooperative and thoughtful throughout the two weeks of the [Smithsonian Folklife Festival]. He was instrumental to the success of the programming. His performance, often multiple times a day, and was consistently professional and entertaining. In addition to showcasing his great skill at object manipulation he educated Smithsonian audiences on the history of juggling and adapted to whatever situation presented itself. Thom even went the extra mile and stayed after his engaging performances to answer questions from the public. This illustrates his incredible dedication to the circus arts and commitment to inspiring circus fans of all ages. I cannot recommend Thom enough.
Nichole Procopenko, MA
