Twist Entertainers is a New York City based entertainment company providing some of the best balloon artists in NYC to events and venues such as birthdays, festivals, carnivals, fairs, school functions, restaurants, corporate events, weddings, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, and more!


Founder and Director Rami Shafi has been twisting balloons for over 10 years after learning the skill at 17 in order to twist for his little sister's birthday party. In 2013 he moved to New York with only $50 in his pocket and began twisting balloons for tips in Times Square every day until he saved up enough to get off his friend's couch and move in to his own place. Two years later, Twist Entertainers was born and since then Rami has trained a team of fellow actors and performers how to twist balloons and bring a simple yet memorable joy into people's lives.


Our artists are also available for balloon decor, installations, and special item drop-off to create perfect moments for instagram. We also teach group and individual classes in the art of balloon twisting as well as team building workshops.​ 

We pride ourselves on the quality, creativity, and wow factor of our balloons to keep children and adults alike engaged and entertained.
