Mike Tyus, Dancer, was born in Seattle, Washington and grew up in Los Angeles. After being prescribed dance as physical therapy following reconstructive leg surgery, Mike found his passion. He started his training with jazz competitive dance. Hungry to learn more, he then auditioned for the renowned Cirque du Soleil. Mike worked with Cirque from 2008-2012, which gave him the opportunity to share and experience dance throughout the entire world. This experience helped mold his sense of discipline, work ethic, and pride in movement. Mike wants to specifically thank Alfonso Coro for supporting him through the rough stuff.
