STOP BULLYING: Studies have shown that 15-25% of U.S. students are bullied. What is bullying? Why do people bully others? What are the effects of bullying? Do you bully others? What should you do if you are bullied? What should you do if you see bullying taking place? Dan will seek the answers to these questions and more throughout his program with honest, straight forward talk and some fun juggling too. This is Dan's most popular program.
Reading Is GRAND: This fun juggling program is geared toward the importance of reading. Only half the world's population can read. Reading and juggling are both skills that improve with practice. Dan will read and juggle at the same time, manipulate a hat while a volunteer reads the actions, open a book where realy fire leaps from the pages, and a whole lot more. Plus Dan will share some of his favorite books. Dan has been published on numerous occassions.
The D.A.N. Show (Do your best, Awesome thinking, Never give up): This is Dan's newest program that combines character education with the love of simple sciences. Dan will weave the six pillars of character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship into an entertaining program mixed with fun juggling "experiments". Dan will impact your students in a way so engaging and fun, they won't even realize they are learning.
The Truth About Drugs: What is a drug? Do you really know? Why do people use drugs? Why do people abuse drugs? Dan will grab everyone's attention with some amazing juggling and some serious talk. Throughout the program Dan will pause his juggling and speak on the issues pertaining to being drug free, making good choices, and thinking about consequences.
