Balloon Modeler & Artist
Dale has a Masters in Communication and Training from Govenors State University. He is a corporate entertainer, trainer, keynote speaker, college educator, toastmaster, and entrepreneur who educates, entertains, and enlightens audiences.
Dale Obrochta’s success started in 1984 when he helped an audience to engage their inner child and to be captivated by the twisted visual art called balloon entertainment. Dale’s passion for entertaining is fueled from working with world-class jugglers, unicyclists, magicians, clowns, balloonists, fire-eaters, theatrical entertainers, and vaudevillians. As a teenager, Dale worked with many amazing, technically talented individuals learning his trade through the open-sourced and freely-traded knowledge that is a standard feature of this type of professional group.

TEDxNaperville Idea Interpreter
Dale introduces us to a well know, but under appreciated art form – balloon twisting. While attendees view Jill Shargaa’s TED Talk “Please, please, people. Let’s put the ‘awe’ back in ‘awesome,'” Dale builds an ever growing sculpture of what it “awesome” truly is.
