About Brett Outchcunis
Brett is a professional entertainer, motivator, dancer and DJ rolled into one, compact package. He has been dancing for about 21 years now and specializes in step and yo-yo dancing. Brett danced all the way through high school, competing in major dance competitions around the country and then graduated from UMass, Amherst with a degree in Communication in 1998. Directly out of college he got picked up by Yomega Corporation, a yo-yo company based out of Fall River, MA. and became a touring yo-yo professional. During that time, he taught dance (part-time) and auditioned for the Boston run of STOMP, making it to the third and final call back!
After 5 years of touring and performing for the yo-yo company, Brett decided to start his own entertainment company called Ninepoints Entertainment. He spends the academic year traveling to different schools in the New England area speaking to students on topics ranging from positive life choices to academic excellence. Brett also visits corporations speaking on the importance of fun in the workplace and why it's important to re-capture the wonders of imagination before it's too late. As a bit of a side-job and hobby, Brett DJs parties of all types.
Brett offers school assembly programs that will fit your school's needs. His shows consist both of educational content (fitting state curriculum standards) AND fill in the grey areas surrounding morals and "social assets" that kids often don't get enough exposure to. He uses yo-yos, music, creative movement, audience participation and enthusiasm as the vehicles to capture his audience and more importantly, get the content across to the kids in a manner they will enjoy and remember for years to come.
