Founder Eli Echevarria has performed his unique style of clowning throughout the Midwest, Canada, and Great Britain, has published two best selling books on balloon twisting, and has been a guest lecturer at dozens of conventions and seminars devoted to the art of clowning, lecturing on virtually all aspects of clowning, including make-up and costume design, beginner and advanced balloon twisting, face painting, juggling, plate spinning, skit performance, magic, and restaurant clowning.
The highlight of Eli's career came in February of 2010 when he was hired by Cirque Du Soleil, the French Canadian entertainment company that offers a "dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment for a series of performances around the Detroit area.
