"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!"

The Florida Super Jam 2020 

​A Educational Balloon Twisting Decorating And Entertainment Event

The Balloon Brothers (Bradley Mock and Joe Mock) are from Buffalo NY, and have been twisting for almost 7 years. They both got into balloon artistry very unexpectedly, but instantly fell in love with it. That love only grew, and became an obsession with every aspect of balloons as well as perfecting their own art form. After a little time, research and encouragement from artists in their local community, they decided to give making balloons at events a try. They were in awe at how far the industry had grown over the years and how far balloon designs have come. After a few months of twisting, they were already showing signs of potential and started creating unique and original pieces to stand out from the crowd. And over the next few  years, they quickly developed a twisting style and philosophy that is all their own. They specialize in line work and birthday party balloon sculptures, but are no rookies when it comes to creating amazing decor and creative display pieces. One of the awesome things about Bradley and Joe is that they thrive on helping others, and making sure everyone reaches their highest potential. They get such a fulfilling feeling when helping other artists learn new sculptures and techniques. "The smile that comes from realizing ones own potential is something we want every single artist of any skill level to experience". The Balloon Brothers are just beginning their journey into the bigger community, and plan on leaving a lasting impression on the industry. They will be at Florida Super Jam 2020 teaching tons of new designs and techniques, as well as making new friends and family. Hope to see you all there 😎😎

 ...has been a Balloon Twister since 2002, when she stumbled upon the craft looking for totally unrelated work. She went into an audition as a belly dancer and came out as a balloon artist. As a lifelong artist, Gina has dabbled in many different mediums, but latex quickly became her chosen outlet of creativity.
     What started as an unexpected career quickly became an obsession and now when Gina is not busy making balloons, she’s busy drawing them! Soon after she started her Balloon Animal Clipart business, BalloonyToony.com, orders for custom balloon animal drawings came pouring in. Now exposed to so many new and unique balloon animal ideas, Gina has been taking her Balloon Twisting to the next level.
