Jan is excited to have the opportunity to bring a breath of "fresh air” to the Bling Bling Jam with her special no-helium balloon arrangements designed especially for Bling Bling Jam attendees! She respects and admires the art of the twist, but her years of experience as an instructor have primarily focused on decor designs and beautiful, air-filled techniques to increase profits. Now, at Bling Bling Jam 2017, she will premiere air-filled decor components designed for twisters to showcase their sculptures at large events and hustle the kiddies through long lines, plus arrangements to sell as interactive drop-offs and clever add-ons at twisting gigs. They’re brilliant and unique and created by Jan specifically for busy twisters!

Blanca Mendoza CBA California USA

Blanca started decorating for friends and family in her early 20s' just for fun that turned into a hobby. It never came across her mind that this could become a business.  Than she had her second baby and wanted to work from home and have a flexible schedule. Having a strong background in party planning/decorating , she decided to expand by enrolling at the community college.  She took courses in party planning, floral arrangements, and decorating. IN 2006 she was curious to learn how to make an arch for her own baby shower. This is where- her "Whole New World" Began! She took classes all over and was never worried about the costs and turned her hobby into one of the most successful balloon decoration businesses in LA called "LA BALLOON EVENTS". She also became an instructor for Conwin's "Balloon Artist Academy" She is also a founder of the QBN Mundo Latino Chapter in LA. Today she shares her knowledge by teaching others the techniques of the art of balloon decorating and successful business tips. She continues to grow and is very excited to teach for the first time at the Bling Bling Jam 2017 and share with all of you!

A former MMA fighter and theater major, Brian Potvin has taken his creativity and determination to new levels with the help of balloons. As the Ballusionist, Brian now performs on TV, at posh parties, art events and corporate celebrations creating unbelievable works of balloon sculpture.

In 2003, divided by his passions, Brian began working as a clown at parties to help pay the bills. He immediately saw the opportunity that was ignored by his competitors. As a clown, he had the chance to reinvent himself constantly, to create, to work with people and to expand his knowledge of the arts; all while having a blast. In a few years, he found that he could create anything he wanted with balloons. He also found his voice in creating the balloons — making jokes, amping up the party and creating a whirlwind of wonder.

The makeup came off and he started spending hours twisting latex to make the things he loved, like movie and comic characters, as well as anything he could imagine. Since then, he’s had the chance to share his balloon creations on TV shows around the world with hundreds of celebrities including Gwen Stefani, Dean Kane, Sascha Baron Cohen and David Arquett.

We are so excited for Bling Bling Jam 4! We are excited about our 2018 theme!  Large Jam room!~ Even though we are called a Jam we had and will have tons of classes! 

 ​Instructors/Classes- Subject to change! Twisting classes, Balloon Decoration Classes, Magic and maybe some Face Painting and more! Stay Tuned for updates!

Gergo Csatai Hungary (First time Teaching in USA

Sponsored by GMAR Balloons!

         He simply blew down the walls that for years had defined the limits of the possible for balloon artists. Within a very short time the extraordinary detail and refinement of his one-balloon creations astonished even veteran balloon sculptors.  Not content to limit himself to simple one-balloon figures as balloon sculptors and entertainers did at that time, his repertoire of balloon figures rapidly expanded to include aircraft, animals, birds, cars, cycles, celebrity caricatures, reptiles, sports equipment, and many other phenomenally detailed innovations.  He developed a balloon weaving process in 1984 which made possible a wide variety of life-sized multiple balloon sculptures that amazed and entertained audiences wherever he performed.


         His Balloon Art exhibits could only be described as incredible, and regularly attracted audiences numbering in the thousands. He began working with Pioneer Balloon Company in January, 1986, teaching and demonstrating Balloon Art throughout the world.  At the International Balloon Arts Convention in Orlando, Florida in August, 1994, Marvin was awarded the Crystal Award for his outstanding contributions to the Worldwide balloon industry. The Crystal is the highest honor the balloon industry at that time could bestow. It would be comparable to earning the Oscar as the Best Actor in a Feature Film in the Movie Industry.  In the year 2000 He was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award for his 20 year dedication to the Balloon Industry.  In 2012 he was awarded a second Lifetime Achievement Award for his 25 years of service to Pioneer Balloon Company and Qualatex balloons.


         In addition to his personal accomplishments with balloon figures, Marvin and his wife, Penny, operated a successful full service balloon business for over thirty years. They travelled extensively and have decorated and performed throughout North and South America as well as in such exotic places as Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Israel, and Lebanon, and in several countries in Europe and the Far East. They developed many of the balloon decorating techniques that are in use within the balloon industry throughout the World.
