Tampa Teacher’s Twisting Talents

Balloon Artists are a dime a dozen. Finding a college kid who can twist simple balloon animals and swords is easy. Imagine, though, if you could find an entertainer with nearly twenty years experience as an ADVANCED balloon twister.

“It was a pleasure working with Jimmy and his work complimented our daughter’s 1st birthday perfectly. He was very professional and dependable. He showed concern and interest in the best interest of his client. I’ve seen other balloon entertainers who make the typical hats, dogs and balloon swords but Jimmy was the hit with his chicken, alligator, tiger, reindeer, elephant, flamingo hats and masks. The kids love it!! We really look forward to working with him again”

– Roxanna Kingsbury

Imagine, also, if that person was also a comedien and storyteller, blending the three art forms together into 1 dynamic performance. Entertaining children of ALL AGES!

Balloon artist, Jim Leo, is a great entertainer for children as well as adults. Through his amazing balloon art and his comedic personality, Jim is an absolute entertainer. I can promise you that your guests will always remember your party or event with very fond memories when Cloud 9 Balloons is a part of it.

Of course, what separates him from EVERY other entertainer in the Tampa Bay area is that he’s also a PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR who will teach important concepts such as literacy, mythology, antibullying and SCIENCE to your kids in a way so amusing that they won’t even realize they’re LEARNING!

“Working with Jimmy Leo from Cloud 9 Balloons has been such a pleasure and a privilege. I first met Jimmy during the Main Street event in New Port Richey in June 2008. It was hard not to notice the swarms of children that were gathered in a circle watching him perform his amazing talent. He is not just a balloon artist but he is in fact an entertainer, his personality shines through his work and just memorizes kids and adults with his creations. I brought my daughter and a friend to this event to help promote my business by handing out free items and business cards. Before long she was handing out Jimmy’s cards and promoting his business! Barktoberfest 2008 was our first fundraising event that we held and we knew Jimmy would be perfect for this event. He not only donated three hours of his time to perform his balloon magic but also donated some wonderful silent auction items that helped raise money for local area pet rescue groups. He did a live audience demonstration and created a life size dragon and then donated his masterpiece, which we auctioned off creating a bidding war between customers. Jimmy Leo is like no other balloon artist I have ever met and I look forward to working with him for future events.”

So if you’re looking for “Boring” the Balloon Guy, go elsewhere. But if you feel your party guests or patrons deserve the very best….. Enter your event solution.

Amazing Job Jimmy! My name is Rob Kress. I am the Marketing Director for IERNA’s Heating & Cooling. Jimmy Leo attended a special DNA Life Print Event Hosted by IERNA’s Heating & Cooling. It was a special event catering to kids and kids safety. Jimmy was AMAZING! He really created an energy at the event that just blew me away. He had music, great balloon sculptures that he created for the kids, and his persoanlity kept everyone laughing and just wanted more, more, more. We had over 250 kids at this event that day and Jimmy handled it with no problem. If you want a TRUE ENTERTAINER and a professional at your next event….I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Cloud 9 Balloons and Jimmy Leo. Job Well Done. I know we will be using his services again. Thank you Jimmy Leo for helping our event to be a such an amazing success!

Enter Jimmy Leo from Cloud 9 Balloons.

Bravo, Jimmy Leo. I knew when I read the article about you in the Pasco Times that you were the act for our Christmas Party. I was right on the money. From the moment you stepped into the Gulf Harbors Yacht Club, you entertained the Children and Families with gusto. Your high energy act delighted all present. There was never a dull moment from the beginning to end. Everyone was mesmerized by your performance. There were laughs abundant and children with wide eyes looking to see what was next. The grownups too. The kids all waited on line with great patience, as you entertained each one, and presented them great balloon surprise. A tribute to your people skills. Truly A Class Act. Thank you once again. It’s been a pleasure to meet you.
