pt bullet Hip Hop Dancing Program

More importantly, he strives to inspire students to think about dance and music as an artistic expression. His goal for youth is to encourage them to use creativity as a positive outlet to increase one's self esteem.

pt bullet Poetry With Pizazz
smcake50 Andy is a long time writer, performance poet, frequent editorial contributor, musician, and certified die hard cynic. He performs for schools, civic organizations, assisted living and retirement communities, libraries, Tupperware parties, divorce proceedings, new parking meter installations, and even for relatives he intensely dislikes.

His program for Middle School students is educational and hilarious. In short, it is superb. The audience will want to stay even longer than the time alotted. Yes, you read that correctly.

Whatever you do, don't miss this program. The following is a reference letter from one of the Middle Schools in Connecticut:
"Andy's passion for poetry comes through loud and clear to audiences of all ages. As a guest poet at our Middle School this past April, he inspired both students and teachers to comfortably express themselves through the power of words... poetically. His open communication via words, body language, and drums created an enjoyable atmosphere in which all were comfortable hearing his humor, self reflection, and personal emotions. Students were engaged not only in listening to Andy's poems, but in open dialogue and personal sharing of their own personal works of poetry with him and the audience.

Celebrating poetry with Andy was not only entertaining but educational. His topics were pertinent to his Middle School audience dealing with such topics as bullying, love of family, and hoarding toilet paper! Ending his performance with our own students' presentation of their own poetry gave respect and confidence to both the poets who shared and those in the audience who listened. Upon the request of both students and faculty, Andy will be an annual staple to our celebration of poetry."
Liz K., Middle School Educator.
Andy's program duration is one hour. A longer presentation is also available.

pt bullet Caricatures by George

George has been traveling around Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts entertaining crowds with his caricatures for almost twenty years! He strives for a high level of quality and professionalism in all of his work and brings that same attitude to every caricature he draws. A caricature by George will give you and your party guests a unique and lasting souvenir to remember the great time you had and how great you look in cartoon form!


You do the easy work - just sit and look pretty (or handsome) while George captures your cartoon likeness on the page. He prefers to draw a caricature of you at your best, instead of the usual "big ears, giant teeth" variety that you get at amusement parks. Whether you're getting drawn solo, or with a friend or loved one, George's goal when he draws your caricature is to give you a picture that will make you smile! And remember, no peeking until the caricature is done!
