Have you ever wanted to learn ventriloquism and puppetry? Study from home via skype/zoom with Kellie for one on one training from basics of ventriloquism/hand puppetry to advanced. Learn how to create character, script development, voice work and movement. Kellie has full time students and students who come to her when they can make it work with their schedule.

Look what folks are saying!

The work that Kellie does is a very effective part of a learner’s special education program, as it helps develop social awareness, language processing, motor planning and writing. It gives the learner the freedom to express themselves through language without embarrassment since the puppet is speaking which decreases the anxiety of verbal communication while building confidence.
