"From dogs to dresses,
my mom can make almost
anything from balloons."
Not only was Aimee entertaining, but her show was very educational. During her program, she incorporated not only specifics about the art of balloon twisting, but lessons of love, friendship, and forgiveness through her storytelling that with kids can’t be emphasized enough! I highly recommend Miss Aimee for all daycare centers or families with young children!

I liked the interaction Miss Aimee had with the children. The show was very entertaining and educational as well. The children loved it and so did the parents.

Absolutely splendid show!
I liked the high level of science instruction that was never boring -- well paced, kept the children interested and involved. The performance was entertaining and informative, the perfect mix of performance and instruction!

The How to Catch a Mouse balloon show was engaging and fun for a wide range of ages. I loved how lots of kids were able to be involved in the building of the mouse trap...the children had a blast!

Your performance for our Family Science Day was fabulous. I knew that your show would be fantastic after your teaser at the November performers' exhibition in the Mid-Cities, but there is nothing like being in front of a live audience to truly showcase a performer's talent.
You built such a great rapport with our kids and your ability to make science accessible to such a vast range in ages is so impressive. Thank you for being part of our summer and helping us give our youngest patrons a life-long love of science and learning. Best wishes for the rest of this year and next.

2020 Summer Reading Program
Once Upon a Time - 2020 Summer Reading Program
The Once Upon a Time balloon show was created to collaborate with the CTLS 2020 Summer Reading Program theme, "Imagine Your Story". This program combines storytelling, comedy, improv and balloon twisting to provide a unique, one-of-a-kind program that will leave your audience rolling with laughter and eager to check out more books. The Once Upon a Time show is both educational and entertaining - it's the perfect combination of learning and laughing!
Children will watch as classic fairy tales are brought to life with the help of audience volunteers, who help act out the stories using costumes and props made entirely from twisted balloons. Throughout the show Miss Aimee will use comedy and audience participation to teach the children about the 5 elements of a story (plot, character, setting, theme, conflict). For the grand finale, the audience will get to put those 5 elements into action as they work together as a team to help Miss Aimee create their own story. With lots of interaction, improv and audience participation - this grand finale is bound to be a hilarious story you won't want to miss!
Want to have even more fun?
We can turn this balloon show into a Pajama Party & invite children to wear their favorite PJ's!

She continues to still attend training programs throughout the year to further improve her skills, so she can be sure to provide you with the best experience possible.
