Didn't know they offered an instructional DVD on this. Have you considered contacting performers who do this and see if you can work something out with them?

One word warning: asphyxiation. You better think about this trick before you even attempt it. You are sealing yourself inside a balloon with NO airflow. The only oxygen you get (which you need to survive) is in the balloon from the start. Also, depending on how you blow the balloon up you could be trapped in there with toxic carbon monoxide. One of the other hazards is what happens if the balloon gets a pinhole in it and starts to deflate. You would be wrapped in side a balloon cocoon. Not good.

That being said there is no "trick", you get a huge balloon pump it full of air and get inside.

This stunt is fairly basic to perform, but if review the videos on You Tube you will find a significant difference in the performance value between them. It is the unique spin you put on the performance that will really make it great. The book Mark suggests is a great start. You should also know that these balloons cost over $20 plus shipping, so figure that in when deciding if it is for you. There is also a learning curve to getting in the balloon and safety can be an issue. Make certain someone is available to assist if needed (armed with a pair of sissors).

Are the balloons reusable?

Yah - they can be reused if you are careful. it has been shared that you can place a used one in a pillowcase and put in the dryer to reform it into like new condition. myself, I intentionally pop it every time.
