Jennifer Baybrook has been amazing audiences around the world as a professional yo-yo performer since she was eight years old. Making her professional debut with the Smotherâ€™s Brothers in 1989, she began a world performance tour that consisted of appearing at schools, fairs, festivals, civic organizations and on special event stages in 14 countries and 30 U.S. states. Her repertoire consists of over 300 different yo-yo tricks ranging from old favorites like Walk the Dog and Rock the Baby to amazing feats with two yo-yoâ€™s at once. She offers entertaining, motivational or educational science programs for a variety of organizations and events. She became the first female to win the National Yo-Yo Contest, the World Yo-Yo Contest and was awarded the title of National Yo-Yo Master, joining the ranks of an elite small group of yo-yo demonstrators.
