What do you get when you combine the singing and dancing of the Broadway Theater with jaw-dropping yoyo skills?? You get The New York Yoyo Show!™
Hi, Everyone! I'm Brian (the yoyo guy).
I'm a musical theater performer based here in NYC, the theater capital of the world! I've performed in Off-Broadway Shows, National Tours and Regional Theaters. When I'm not singing and dancing on stage, I love nothing more than spreading smiles by introducing the world to yoyos! My show combines the best of what I do to create a truly unique and entertaining show for all ages!
I'm am so happy to be able to offer my school outreach program for FREE to local schools in and around the NYC area. My program consists of three parts:
1. An all-school assembly to watch my 30-minute show, where I demonstrate the amazing tricks that can be done with the yoyo! In my show, we'll explore the history of yoyo, dive into the science of how it works, and even break a world record with one lucky student!
2. I will teach yoyo-ing in the regularly scheduled PE classes over the course of a day (Or multiple days, depending on the size of the school.)
3. During the program, the school and I will host a yoyo sale (very similar to a school photo sale), where $1 from every yoyo sold will go DIRECTLY back to the school as a fundraiser!
The yoyo is a fascinating toy. Its ancient origins are a fun mystery, but its more recent history depicts a classic Rags-To-Riches Immigrant Story! In my show, students will learn about Pedro Flores, a Fillipino entrepreneur whose innovations to the yoyo propelled it to prominance in the USA during the 1920s and 1930s.
Playing with yoyos allows students to make scientific discoveries in the palm of their hands! In my show, we'll explore how Gravity, Friction, Mass and Force allow us to do some amazing yoyo tricks! Then, we'll tie it all together with a killer explaination of Newton's Laws of Motion. We'll even discover how yoyos behave in outer space!
The process of building yoyo skills is an excellent teacher in itself. In addition to learning awesome yoyo tricks, the students will be challenged to develop their skills in Perseverence, Hand-Eye Coordination, Creative Problem Solving and Teamwork.
From the creator of The New York Yoyo Show™ comes an ALL-NEW interactive VIRTUAL livestream show! This exciting new show is PERFECT for virtual birthday parties, virtual field trips, socially distant live events, and more!
Wow, Brian was excellent - impressive. The history, science behind the tricks and the added camera angles, the setup to the finale and the finale itself was amazing.
