Becoming the Best

How to become one of the best in anything is our focus in this interactive workshop. Participants are introduced to the skill of juggling to engage their spirits, their minds and their bodies. Keeping this new skill in mind they are asked to reflect on what it might take to become one of the best. This is then the jumping off point to focus in on individual gifts, skills, and talents. Finding those talents and then following their own advice students see how they can become One of the Best!

Elementary: Fun for the Entire Family!

Outta Hand Comedy!

BallTruth! Comedy! And the Juggling Way! This is a fast paced comedy show with a message. Juggling is hard work, and so is reaching your goals. Through his antics Ted discovers (and teaches) that mistakes are just part of the process. Manipulating balls, multiple other objects, as well as the audience is all part of the fun. A show for the entire family!

"WOW!" Tony Infantino of Tony & Dee in the Morning, WARM 101.3 FM.
"Thank you for your fantastic juggling act at School 33 this past December. Your performance was outstanding." Melissa Swald Camman, Pirate Toy Fund, Executive Director

I Can't Yet! Show

I Can't YET! is about turning failure into success. This show is a slapstick look at learning. Mistakes are not permanent! This is an audience participation show that teaches goal setting, learning step by step, and challenging yourself to do amazing things. Ted uses the skills of manipulation and balancing to bring these concepts to life. I Can't Yet has been performed at the Strong Children's Museum, Trinity Montessori in East Rochester, NY and Creative Themes Summer Camp. The show is appropriate for ages 3 to 103.

"Ted had the audience, ranging in age from 2 to 92, in the palm of his hand." Judi Weil, Children's Coordinator, Audubon Court Books, Ltd. Wisconsin.


Boomerangs are a fun and easy sport, craft, art, and science that anyone can do. Boomerangs are not just the wooden two wing type we typically think of, they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. They can be for indoor (safe foam) or outdoor use and can travel from a few feet to the length of a football field and more. Depending on your goals Ted will customize a program to meet your needs. Indoor or outdoor (weather dependent) we can teach children as young as 5 to successfully throw and catch boomerangs. Boomerangs are also suprisingly easy to make from cardboard and wood. Making and throwing your own boomerang is a great way for children to learn about flight and gain self confidence. The boomerang program has been a part of the Creative Themes Day Camp program since 2009. Ages 5 and up.
