My husband and I attended the Balloon Training Institute in December 2017. We were looking for a way to learn balloon decor hands on and be able to learn within a reasonable time. We traveled from Ontario Canada and did the 6 day course. We could not believe the amount of skills we had learned by the end and the amazing friends we made. Not to mention all the “extras” we got for being there. Ben and Billy taught us how to start a balloon business and be successful. We were 100% happy with the course and material taught. We would go back again! Plus the lifetime guarantee is an amazing add on! Don’t hesitate if your interested! You won’t regret going!

Two and a half years ago, February 2nd to be exact, I woke up, and something inside said “go to balloon school”. Now, I was never a balloon kind of person before this. I didn’t think of balloons, I owned a gift shop (which i recently closed to pursue balloons full time, after 23 years in business). 

Not having any idea where to start, I hit the internet. The first academy that came up was “The Balloon Institute”. I picked up my phone, and called the number. Much to my surprise, a human answered the phone!!! It was Ben, owner and operator (with his partner Billy) of the Balloon Institute. I was so excited I could barely contain myself. Within a day, Ben had me signed up, and on February 4, 2021, my Ballooner journey began.

I spent months, and I mean months, taking class everyday. Practicing everyday. Trying, and practicing, and sometimes failing. When I succeeded, Ben and Billy were there to cheer me on, when I failed, Ben was always honest with me, Caryn, that was not good. Then he would talk me through my issues, ANYTIME I needed him.

I learned the foundation of ballooning. THE MOST IMPORTANT part. You cant fly if you cant walk. From how to tie, to how to inflate properly, stack, store, build props, table top, helium...all of the most important parts of becoming a successful, and talented, ballooner.

My heart is, and will always be, so deeply grateful for the lessons I have learned with Ben and Billy. Most important, the support I received, emotional and educational, has been unsurpassed. These men are my friends, and I cherish them. If they didnt believe in me the way they did... I would never have had the confidence to pursue this.

Balloons are my Magic. The Balloon Institute, helped me nurture that magic, and bring it to life.

May you all find your magic.

Balloon Classes Online (Ben & Billy) has helped me break out of my comfort zone with balloons & taken me to a level of professionalism I never thought possible. With their classes & their videos I have created & continue to create some amazing pieces of balloon art. The classes have provided me with the knowledge to create anything. They have been with me, guiding me & encouraging me every step of my entry into the balloon world & it's been awesome!!! I am so fortunate to have them in my corner, cheering, encouraging & challenging me every day to do more, as Ben would say "YOU GOT THIS". They take the time to answer all of my questions and I do have a lot of questions. So would I recommend Balloon Classes Online? DEFINITELY!!! You want to create professional balloon art? Sign up now, you won't be disappointed. I know I'm not. Thank you Ben & Billy for all you do!!!! You both ROCK 🙂
