Field, Barb Balloon Art! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Visual Arts- Other
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. BJ will encourage the participants to have fun while they use their own creative ideas to design unique balloon sculptures. She will show them how to prepare the balloons and a few different ways to twist them. Then they will need to think and plan ahead. This involves a little bit of painless, hands-on deliberating about dividing and fractions … how much balloon do I have left to twist how many legs??? Although some participants may want to learn how to make a standard balloon dog, BJ prefers to encourage them be creative on their own and see what they can design. We can also add on a brief BALLOON MAGIC SHOW or just perform the show with no hands-on twisting by the audience. THIS PROGRAM IS BEST SUITED FOR SECOND GRADE TO ADULTS. www.bjandcompany.com 607-432-0988
