School Show Options
I am a former middle school teacher, and I have performed at thousands of schools since 1998. Because of this, I have the experience necessary to work with all types of students to help them succeed. Whether you are looking for entertainment or education, I have the perfect show for your school.
Check out the different options for school shows below. My programs can be very flexible, and I tailor them to fit your needs.
I have been performing my FREE Science of Spin Program all across the Midwest since January of 2000. I spend an entire day at your school (sometimes multiple days depending on the number of students in the school). My program is based on science and physical education. I use yo-yos and other sporting equipment to capture the attention of the entire school. I then spend the rest of the day working with the P.E. department, or science classes teaching the students how to yo-yo. My program fits in great with the P.E. curriculum because it involves hand-eye coordination, throwing and catching skills, and balance. It is a great way to help the students build a skill that they will enjoy for a lifetime, and teach them about the physics.
My program can be free for schools as well as a potential fund-raiser. The fund-raiser is possible by having yo-yo sales available to the students for one week following the show. One dollar from every yo-yo goes back to the school, and the remainder goes to me to pay for the program.
The Science of Spin Program is also available without yo-yo sales for $600 per day. To see my program in action, watch the video below and

This show is great for student reward days or for after-school activity programs.
Being a former middle school teacher, I love to perform in the school environment. I have many of the tools needed to grab the students attention and to teach them something at the same time. We also have a lot of fun! You have the option to take it a step further, and give your students the opportunity to learn "how to" yo-yo. I offer workshops to teach all the basic tricks and more!
My basic show fee is $300. Workshops are extra based on your number of students. Depending on your location, there may be a travel fee.

Art comes in many forms; it can be displayed on a canvas, or performed for a group. My type of art is the art of yo-yo play and performance. Depending on what your school needs, I teach your students about the yo-yo. More than just the basic tricks, they learn about how a yo-yo works, and how to perform with it. A select group of students can perform at a talent show or assembly. My program can be as short as one day with a small group, or many days to teach all of your students.
Objectives the students may learn:
• The physics acting upon yo-yos
• The basic tricks using a yo-yo
• Understand the contest structure of the National Yo-Yo League
• How to perform an entertaining show for friends and family
The show fee is based on each school's specific needs.
