Who’s Dale

If you ask Dale where he learned his skills, he will tell you from a bunch of twisted people. While attending college, he met a group of professional entertainers who met every Monday and would practice in the gym. Always wanting to learn how to juggle, Dale joined this merry group.

This Illinois entertainer learned from world-class jugglers, unicyclists, magicians, clowns, balloonists, fire-eaters, theatrical entertainers, and vaudevillians. “I did not realize at the time how lucky I was to be working with such talented people and the skills and techniques that were freely taught to me,” said Dale. “I have used all my entertainment skills over the years but have decided I would rather be a Master of one form of entertainment than a jack-of-all-trades. So I became a master balloonist.”

Dale’s unique mix of comedy and balloon twisting has made people laugh since 1984.

His many accomplishments so far in his life have been:

• Married in 1998 with two sons
• Completing a Master’s Degree in Communication & Training
• Acting as MC for a Cable Television Show
• Performing on NBC and WGN
