“Lucas certainly delivers a dynamic and interactive one man show! His session taught the kids about their culture through dance, music and song. Lucas was amazing, the students and teachers loved his performance. He was entertaining and the students were fully engaged from start to finish. Lucas was highly professional and a very positive role model for Aboriginal students. Can’t wait to have you back!”
