and making people laugh is some much fun, and
your course has helped me so much."
"Jazzy the Clown" Massillon, OH
Imagine not having to worry about
getting to class on time because the courses are available to
you whenever you would like to logon. Imagine an educational
course so practical that you can take what you learn online in
the morning and put it to use that afternoon.

Your info is so easy to understand and so helpful."

Don't be Nervous!
Anyone beginning an Internet
course for the first time has reservations. Many students feel
that they will receive "less of an education" by taking
a web course rather than a traditional classroom lecture course.
Many are afraid that they will not be able to handle the technology.
While these concerns are understandable, they are not accurate.
Research has shown that distance learning students perform as
well or better than traditional classroom students. Learn at you own pace at home.
Through the Internet,
you can access the material any time.

I am the
Julie H. Buckley, AKA
I began clowning 19 years ago
after attending a week-long summer clown school. Since that first
school, I have attended a least 16 additional schools. I have
taught at many workshops and conventions as well as directing
the clowning division of the SC Southern Baptist Creative Ministry
Festival for 9 years. I have successfully conducted two weekend
workshops in Columbia, SC. Clowning full-time for these 19 years,
my experience has been broad. I have performed at:
- Children parties
- Corporate functions
- Educational programs in schools
- Trade Shows
- Hospitals & Nursing homes
In 1997, I had the opportunity
to get a taste of circus life when I performed spot lighted center
ring routines with the Royal Hanniford Circus.
