Here is the fourth part of a six-part series featuring those special people who make art and entertainment out of folding air into latex balloons. Our conversations centered on making a living doing art, how they started in the biz and their creative processes. Laypeople and twisters alike will enjoy these fantastic conversations.

Danny and Lanna talk about performing with balloons, circus skills and giving feedback. Danny admits he’s an idiot. Lanna asks Danny what he thinks of the United States and remarks that he is her first foreigner on the show. Danny talks about working with Avner the Excentric at the Celebration Barn Theater and describes his creative process. And he answers 10 questions.
