Bobbi Kurtz, known as Aunti Bobbi, an Inspirational Entertainer who has been performing for children and their families over 19 years on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Using humour through clowning and movement she is passionate about empowering children to #believeinyourself and #respecteachother.
In 2015 she spent a few years with family and to reflect on her career. She loves to make children laugh, smile and believe in themselves, and realized that she became a clown because it was easier to show up from “behind the mask.” She was bullied as a child and the impact was carried into her adult life, something she would like to see prevented for children today by empowering them to embrace who they are!
This inspired the Ripple Effect Dance Project and on July 1, 2018 in celebration of Canada Day and our diverse country, she returned to the stage without the clown make up to launch the Ripple Effect Dance Project, to celebrate diversity and promote tolerance, inclusion and acceptance of ourselves and others!
It is based on a song that she wrote that is hoped to become an international dance movement with children around the world sharing their moves to the song using #rippleeffectdance that will be posted on her YouTube Channel.
Her dream is to see thousands of children from all walks of life come together to celebrate “who we are just the way we are!”
Changing the world with love, respect and inclusion through the eyes of children and youth from around the world!
She asks, “What Ripple do you want to begin?”
Aunti Bobbi is available for special events and parties that includes good old-fashioned interactive fun, dance through physical literacy, balloon twisting and a little magic!
