"When I perform, my aim is to create a safe space around me, to break the ice into tiny pieces, so everyone can swim together, invent together, be a little silly and connect with each other in a little pool of pure joy. To a child, every new day brings the possibility- the hope- of magic and adventure. The Balloon Lady is the ultimate toy-maker: she becomes a catalyst for creative play. Everyone is invited to dive in, to help create the magic, to dream out loud!"

- Melinda Gonzalez, classroom teacher and magic clown
