The "Positive Spin" program is a 60-minute performance for elementary school-aged children that empowers every student to put a "positive spin" on the frustrating aspects of daily life through the use of fun and easy-to-remember tips and techniques.
Using a combination of comedy, story-telling, music, imagination and yo-yos, Ooch teaches his audience how to look at and react to disappointment in a positive way by unlocking the power of PERSPECTIVE!
Once able to see negative situations in a new light, students are then ready to level-up by learning how to "step back and reset" in times of frustration or anger.
It only takes a couple of seconds to "step back and reset" and those precious seconds can change everything!
