Yourgos Loukos

Yorgos Loukos was an architecture student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris when he decided to take his first dance class. His teachers were Boris Kniasef and Raymond Franchetti. A year later he was offered his first contract by Roland Petit, in Paris' Casino de Paris, where he stayed for two years. He then joined Théâtre du Silence in Paris, where he danced the neoclassical and modern repertoire, including works by Maurice Béjart, Jacques Garnier, and Brigitte Lefevre. Loukos then danced the classical repertoire with the Zürich Opera Ballet for one year.
