Ukrainian-Russian Belly Dancer meets American-Chinese Circus Clown in Asia
JANE met ROB when they shared a stage at the World Expo in Yeosu, South Korea
Rob was an Expo favorite with his show, THE OLD GUY, while Jane brought in many fans with her flowing belly dance routines.
They both realized they could create a brand new performance by combining the grace and beauty of Jane’s dancing with Rob’s circus skills. Throw in a healthy dose of slapstick comedy and you have a winning combination that will excite audiences of all ages and sizes!
Even though Rob Lok was born and raised in New York City, he considers himself a citizen of the world after performing for almost twenty years across the globe.
Some memorable experiences include working with children in refugee camps in Kosovo under the watchful eyes of armed soldiers and seeing boys and girls join together in laughter as Rob performs one of his comedy acts in Andkhoi, Afghanistan.
Rob Lok has the honor of being the first American-Chinese graduate of the acclaimed Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College as well as the first American-Chinese clown to perform in a circus ring in Russia.
