What is everyone saying about their Twist & Shout experience?
"we wanted to take a moment to thank you for making Twist and Shout such a memorable conference. We felt that you did a superb job organizing, planning and setting up this conference. We are still trying to take in all the information, techniques, products that were available. The classes were well prepared, informative and fun. We enjoyed participating in the competitions and the jams. Having the opportunity to build the balloon dress and compete in the fashion show was awesome. The stage entertainment competition was terrific and the Awards Dinner and Banquet was so much fun. We made great friends, enjoyed delicious food and loads of fun." -

Everything that is posted about Twist and shout is true. Do not be pulled in thinking it's folklore. It is really possible to actually be doing something balloon related 24 hours a day... if you can physically keep up... every minute is worth it.
My brain is so full of designs and ideas and laughter. I knew it would be fun but I had no idea how emotional it can leave you. This little latex world we live in is a precious thing. I am so pleased to be part of it.
I found out just how lucky I was to attend a class with T Myer a million years ago, how rare it is that I have the first addition to balloon magic, how personable the very best balloon twisters in the world actually are, and how laughing can actually cause laryngitis. (Sorry band guys)
It's no wonder people find a way to go year after year. I am already trying to
sweet talk the band into letting me off the hook for a certain weekend in February next year. Faith Marie
