DAZZLING DAVE BRINGS HIS SHOW TO VAN HORN PUBLIC LIBRARY TO KICKOFF THE SUMMER READING PROGRAM

Things are going to get Yo-Yo!

Dazzling Dave spinning portrait

Van Horn Public Library is thrilled to welcome Dazzling Dave, Yo-yo Master and performer, for a fun and entertaining show to kickoff the Summer Reading Program for 2016. Dave does all kinds of tricks and incorporates science into his presentation. On Wednesday, June 22 the library will be spinning, rocking and rolling with Dave and his yo-yo fun! The FREE show starts at 2:00 p.m. on the lawn behind the library (Rain location: Pine Island American Legion).

Dazzling Dave Schulte is a professional yo-yo performer and highly acclaimed champion who has circled the globe since 1998, thrilling audiences everywhere with his tricks and tips, all designed to entertain, educate, and illuminate the beauty of the growing sport of professional yo-yo. In October of 2001, Dazzling Dave was named to an elite group of National Yo-Yo Masters, making him one of the exclusive members of the Yo-Yo Judges at the World and National Yo-Yo Championships each year.

Dave is a former middle school teacher who currently lives in Minnesota and gives hundreds of shows each year. He and his wife, Kim, have two children, Eric and Kate, and an incredible collection of over 1,500 yo-yos from around the world. It’s amazing how his life has changed since that first day in 1993 when he was just a college junior looking for a diversion from the pressure of final exams. “Hey,” he said to his buddy. “Mind if I try your yo-yo?”

All Library programs are FREE and open to all ages. In case of special needs, please notify the library in advance so accommodations can be made.
