Dennis Bauyon is the mastermind behind Twixter Balloons in Burnaby, BC!
A true balloonatic, Dennis constantly has balloons on the brain ―so much so that there are balloons in his pockets at any given time.

Dennis’ love for balloons began when he twisted his first one-balloon dog at his son's 7th birthday party,

and now there’s nothing Dennis can't create! Faces are his forte, so it makes sense that his favorite

Betallatex colors are Deluxe Toffee and Peach Blush, which are perfect for so many ofhis"AIR-icatures.”
A member of Canada's Twisted Team, the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and The Vancouver Magic Circle,

Dennis is a force to be reckoned with. Dennis is excited to meet you at the Florida Super Jam 2019 and can’t wait to share some of his creative balloon ideasfeaturing Betallatex balloons! Check out some of Dennis’ creations at Twixter Balloons on Facebook.

 "Heather loves children and started Fun with a Twist when she retired in 2007 as a way to fill her need to interact with children (her grandchildren live about 6,000 km from her home). She also enjoys twisting and creating balloon decor while she and her husband spend their winters in Destin, Florida each year as they escape the cold northern winters of their home province of Newfoundland, Canada. FSJ19 will be her first formal balloon instruction experience, after her informative decor mini-class with her table arches last year. Back by popular demand, watch the schedule for the time for Heather’s repeat class in table arches in the decor corner of the Jam room! 


"I've loved balloons for as long as I can remember. In fact, that's actually a red balloon I'm holding in the picture. I've been twisted since 1984, when I started reading every balloon book that Ralph Dewey wrote. I've produced 23 VHS balloon instructional videos. Yes, I'm that old. I've traveled the world teaching our chosen craft. But my favorite thing to do is to twist skinny tubes of tree sap into the heart's delight of whoever happens to be standing at the front of my line. Just give me a festival street corner for my set-up, and I'm a happy camper. If you're up for learning some quick and easy charmers that are fast and furious out of the bag, while being up and at 'em for bringing out the 5, 10, & 20 dollar bills, come on over to the Jam Room and let's play!"
