The 30/30 Family Program <— My Most Popular Library Program!

This is a 2-part program

 

30 Minute Show

 

First, I will perform a Fun 30 Minute Family Show with comedy, juggling, unicycling, and ball spinning using upbeat music. Each show may change somewhat as I gage the predominate ages of the kids in the audience prior to showtime to determine what I will do in the performance.

Example: With a predominantly 3-6 year old crowd whose attention span is not going to be as long as a group of 7-10 year olds, I would be much more animated and perform bits which take less “set-up” time to accomplish while using more high energy interaction to keep their attention.

 

30 Minute Total Participation Juggling & Movement Session

 

Immediately following the performance, everyone in the audience will get to experience juggling first hand. That includes all the kids as well as all the moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas who would like to play too. I bring enough slow-falling colorful nylon juggling scarves for everyone to participate. Scarves are like “training wheels” for juggling.

Picture hundreds of colorful scarves blanketing the air and upbeat music pumping out a rhythm as everyone is constantly moving and learning some juggling skills. It’s a blast!

 

 

Fun Interactive Family Show

This is a 45 minute action-filled family performance with comedy, juggling, unicycle, ball spinning, and of course, constant interaction with the audience. It’s the 30 minute show in the above program, only a little longer.

Throwing Things

Fun “hands-on” workshop geared for older kids & adult groups

This 90 minute participation workshop will appeal to the pre-teen and teen crowd -ages 10 through high school. This is also a fun (and different) activity for adult groups. It could also be a parent/older child activity. Students learn juggling skills with scarves, beanballs, and will also be able to experi-ment with other manipulation props like Spin Jammers, Luna Stix, and Rope Spinning. Balancing things are also a part of this fun workshop. I will include a short mini-show/demonstration of some cool juggling moves.
