This seminar is based on small classes of  8-10 students getting individualized hands on training on every aspect of balloon decor,  and the instructor mentoring the student for as long as you own your business.    Advanced  LBD classes are held every  yr in Vegas.    This is not a seminar where a large group watches the teacher make designs, and then when it is over you never hear from the instructor again. Our aim is for you to have a honest successful business and/ or increase your current business with any follow up and help needed  for on going success!
