Danny Directs

Coaching for Professional Performers

Danny the Idiot children's party entertainer


Danny Directs enables professional entertainers of family shows to experience their improved or new show, which is tailored to their original concepts and character through an easy, personalized, focused structural guidance.

Danny is offering two packages to a select few performers like you who are looking to add a director to their team that helps you to be the best entertainer you can be for your audiences.

You have your balloon instructors teaching new designs and concepts, magic tutors teaching you new tricks. What about your web designer, accountant, or photographer? So now it’s time to INVEST in YOU as a performer and add Danny as your director to your team.


The Rewards

With this investment, you will, within a few shows, reap the rewards of having a better show or act. It will help you to get more bookings because you will connect more deeply with your audience members. So your booker will recommend you, rebook you and you will gain a better reputation. You will stand out in your market because you will have a quality product (your show). I can help you get there fast and efficiently without having to make all the mistakes in public.

Then you can raise your fees and reap the rewards of your investment.



The Process

  • Using a mixture of video and online conversations, award-winning British performer and professional director Danny Schlesinger (that’s me!) will help you craft a new show or improve an existing act.
  • My goal is to improve the performance standards of balloon artists, children’s entertainers, storytellers and magicians.
