Ann started her passion 26 years ago when she first taught herself to juggle with lemons and limes. An Ann Lincoln show contains standup comedy, expert juggling, circus skills, and magic involving birds, bunnies and audience members. It may even include Ann juggling two bowling balls while eating an apple! Ann’s unique act engages all of your senses. As a spectator, you feel the weight of bowling balls being juggled and hear the coo of her magical dove. You will also talk about the show you have just seen for weeks to come.

Songwriter, producer, guitarist and music teacher Bob Story got his first guitar at age 12. He has now played professionally and created music with people from around the world for 40 years and has taught guitar and several other instruments for 30. Bob believes music is a universal language and loves connecting with students young and old, sharing his insights into the way a guitar can both sing and growl, and seeing the light go on in his students’ eyes. He has three teaching sites in the Boulder area.
David Williard has played piano for nearly 40 years and taught music in Colorado for 25. David performs professionally and is currently the pianist for the Center for Musical Arts' Jazz-combo Band. David's inspiration for learning music was his mother, who is a gifted musician. He loves sharing music with others, especially during the holiday season! David also enjoys composing and arranging music and recording songs in studio settings. He offers this advice: If you are interested in learning an instrument, find a great teacher and stick with it! You will always be glad you did.
