3-time Variety Act of the Year – IMS Niels Duinker first thought of becoming a successful international performer when he was 12 years old, and well before the end of his teenage years his dream had become a reality.Niels won a Gold Medal in the 2009 Taiwan Circus Festival and he has worked all over Europe, in Asia, and made special guest appearances in the United States. His childhood interest in the art of juggling has led this motivated young man on a journey around the world.Modestly beginning his career in a Rotterdam youth circus, Niels now spends his time jetting between high-profile engagements at theaters, casinos, cruise ships, theme parks, and corporate events. Regardless of the venue, audiences always embrace his energetic execution, comedy, and dynamic dexterity.More than just a pretty face with a bag full of cool tricks, in 2009 Niels graduated from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering. Another dream turned reality. He now uses that knowledge to produce his own product line of juggling equipment, see NDjuggling.Sharing his love of the arts with the performers of tomorrow, Niels regularly lectures as a guest artist at two Government-funded professional circus schools in the Netherlands: Codarts Circus School in Rotterdam and the Fontys Circus School in Tilburg.While his focus is clearly to entertain audiences beyond their expectations, Niels still enjoys juggling and, regardless of his impressive achievements in the field, he constantly strives to bring new skills, effects, and laughs to his stage shows.Niels is also a 8-time Guinness World Records record holder and he got awarded Best Corporate Entertainer 2018 – USA by the Corporate Vision Magazine, as well as the Excellence in Education Award by the International Jugglers’ Association.From 2016-2020 Niels performed 1600 shows at the world-famous Comedy Barn Theater in Tennessee. He can now be seen 6 nights a week at the Array Variety Show in Pigeon Forge (Tennessee) when he is not traveling the country to perform at corporate events, fairs or on board luxury cruise liners.
