His stage presence is unmatched as he weaves magic, music and dance into a seamless spectacle. The slick showmanship of Rick Thomas is a riveting visual delight and he is a triumph of personality and presentation!
Thomas' theatrical background includes ballroom dancing, a fact that accounts for the graceful movements of this tall (6'4") magician on stage. At the tender age of five Rick began teaming with his sister, Tamara, in ballroom dance competitions. Their natural abilities, along with hard work, earned them the title of Amateur United States Ballroom Dancing Champions while in their teens.
It was during his ballroom dancing competition travels that he first saw the Tropicana Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and vowed to one day perform at the hotel. Not only did Thomas headline at the Tropicana for 7 years, he continued his success at Planet Hollywood Casino, and Sahara Casino and now proudly tours the world, joining us in Branson.
