Garland Owens is first an educator then a balloon artist. He uses his entertainment skills to encourage courtesy and respect. Having worked more than thirty years in social work, mostly with children, has given him insight with youth to generate comfort. Before he earned his degree in Psychology from Drury, he taught himself circus skills (juggling, unicycle, balancing, rola-bola) He used his circus skills in the treatment of the youth in his care. Teaching kids skills they thought they could not do raises self respect. With his clear and clean instruction, many learn to juggle in 15 minutes. Twisting balloon figures opens up another world of education and entertainment possibilities.
Garland did such a great job with all the kids and was fun to have under our tent! We will definitely use him again with future events!
Kids loved it! He could make them anything they wanted. Such fun, can't go wrong here!
We had Garland come to our sons third birthday party. It was a blast! He had balloons ready to go and spent a solid hour entertaining the kids and taking requests. Even the adults were joining in. If you want a great experience make sure you go for Garland! We plan to have him back when our little guy is older for some Number fun!
Garland never fails to provoke mirth and merriment at our annual party, and we want him to keep coming back. Talented, smart, gentle, and genuinely funny. He teaches kids as he entertains them, and the adults, too. He juggles! He unicycles! He does both at once!
Garland is the most talented person I have ever met. When I saw him perform in a parade riding a unicycle and juggling and still managing to sign "hi" to me I was suitably impressed. Then his performance in A Christmas Carol was enough to win me over on his talent. I would highly recommend him to everyone and there is nobody who will work harder to entertain and please!
