Midwest School Shows - An Old Friend Returns!

It also happens frequently that performing school assemblies will get into your blood. A great school show performer, having worked for us for awhile, will retire to some other profession only to find they miss our odd little world.

Such is the case with Dave Killion, a great school assembly performer from the far North of Michigan. David and his family live up in Higgins Lake, Michigan. Having performed for us in the past with both the Sky Dome Planetarium and The Earth Dome (aka Earth Balloon), and having taken time off to try his hand at teaching, David asked to come back into our little family this year and we were glad to have him back!michigan school assemblies

David comes from a family of educators. His father was a Michigan school principal, and his sister is a teacher in a school in Indiana. Teaching is just in his blood! David came back this year to take on the Sky Dome Planetarium again, and also our science assembly Physics is Fun.

We are only allowed to tour him in the midwest as Dave can’t stand to spend weekends away from his family! As soon as he finishes his school shows on Friday he is in the car and heading back to Higgins Lake, Michigan. Dave is a self-described “driving fool” who racks up a lot of miles just to be sure he doesn't miss too much time with his wife and kids.ohio school assemblies resized 600

Along the way Dave does Michigan school shows, Ohio school shows, Indiana school shows and Kentucky school shows. His tour has him doing school assemblies in Missouri, Kansas, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. But the shows he loves the best are his Michigan school assemblies, since they allow him to get back home to Higgins Lake, Michigan just a little bit sooner!

He is a true Midwest school assembly guy, and a great one. We are really glad to have him back!
