"You are my favorite coach! You got to know us and made juggling so much fun!"
"I learned more in one month working as Benjamin's student than I did in 5 years on my own. He is steady, ready, and full of helpful directives."
"Benjamin's passion and adaptable teaching style helped me learn quickly in a way that worked well for me."
Examples of Classes Benjamin Offers:
How to Get a Cat to Like You: A look into audience engagement
- An audience is like a cat. Come learn techniques for slowly approaching and listening to the audience while playing with them as though you were sitting on a giant bed of catnip and laser pointers.
Tying Shoes, Wrapping Scarves, and Sitting Down with Style: How to turn the 'everyday' into 'no way!'
- Everyday we miss out on opportunities to turn the ordinary into extrordinary, the nornal into abnormal, the _____ into ______. Come learn from a master of 'being watched when all he is doing is walking down the street' in a workshop designed for those that want to find moments of fun in the most mundane areas of their lives.
How to Eat Food in Front of People: A step-by-step guide to looking ridiculous on your own terms
- If you are anything like I used to be, eating in public can be a real nuisance, especially when you want to enjoy your food. Our mothers taught us well, now come learn ideas no book on manners could even begin to address! Manners, social norms, and being respectable will be a thing of the past for participants in this workshop. It is time to learn how to be okay with not being your best.
