“I had the pleasure of having Zig Zag during my summer camp at my center. He was amazing! The children were so excited to see all the wonderful activities Zig Zag jam packed into his show.

Zig Zag is not only an amazing performer. He is very professional. I will have Zig Zag back again and again.”

"Zig Zag was wonderful. He offered his services to our daycare group for children ranging from 1 year - 11 years old and each child was excited. He was on time and professional. He included the children in his act which was great to watch. "

Sharron M. - Growing Together

Students absolutely love to watch and interact with Zig Zag.  Each show is packed with laugh-out-loud entertainment, thought-provoking questions and meaningful engagement. He incorporates many skills such as funny puppetry, juggling, silly magic, physical comedy and musical interaction. Students can meet Jasmine Von MarshmallowSox, the cute and cuddly bunny rabbit as well.  Zig Zag can also create fun balloon art - simple one-balloon designs or amazing multi-sculptures.  More choices include face painting, musical games and fresh cotton candy.
