Your Clown is You!

A workshop with Kenny Ahern is unlike any other workshop you have attended. It is limited in class size, but not limited in possibilities.

Whether you are learning to balance a balloon on your nose; how to safely fall; or finding a new way to move your body, Kenny's teaching style is “hands on” and always builds on one’s personal character and performance style. He respects participants' personal limits. However, does challenge folks to go beyond their comfort zone.

Simply put ... Kenny wants people to take away from his training a tangible, practical knowledge and new insight on their inner fool. He does this by providing education that is relevant, fun and entertaining.

"I promise ... that I can help you, to help yourself, to become a better clown."

An accomplished educator, Kenny has been a faculty member with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College and The University of Wisconsin—La Crosse’s Clown Camp® (twenty years). Kenny has been featured at the World Clown Association and Clowns of America International Conventions and the Clowns Around the World Festival/Conference—SIngapore. He has also presented workshops for the Drama Departments of DePaul University, The University of MInnesota and the University of Virginia.

Complete class list for beginner through advanced clown performers is available here.
