    Erica was sent out as our face painter. She wore a Ninja Turtle shirt to go with the party theme. She was nice and patient with the kids.

    Absolutely wonderful experience!
    We hired the Easter Bunny and a balloon/face paint artist for the Spring Party at our apartment complex. Mr. Bunny came with a handler who helped him maneuver around and he also interacted with the kids. They were all super and the children LOVED them! Christine Gomez and her crew were a joy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone who wants quality entertainers at their event. We will definitely call them again!!

    Amazing hire for my son's birthday party!
    I wanted someone to help keep the kids busy during our sons birthday party and I am so glad I hired Elite Entertainment! It rained on the day of our party and she was able to make adjustments right away and made balloons indoors for the kids and when the rain died down she was able to play games and dance with the kids outside in the patio. It was perfect and the kids had fun and the birthday boy felt special! Thank you Erica...you were awesome!

    Amazing Entertainment
    My daughter enjoyed having Ariel at her birthday party. She was so realistic that my daughter was star struck at first. The entertainer was professional, she even brought her own sound system with music that went with the party's theme. Ariel was very sweet and patient with all of the children. She was able to create the most adorable balloons from ballerinas to penguins. Additionally, she provided exquisite face painting. My daughter got the cupcake and many of the other girls picked the unicorn. I would highly recommend this company for all your entertainment needs and will be calling them again for future parties.

    Wonderful and Terrific Experience with Rapunzel
    Erica dresses up as Rapunzel for my daughters' birthdays and she was terrific!!! All of the kids coming to the party loved her too. She came early to set up, she knew how to entertain the kids, and my daughter can't stop talking about her. Overall, we all had a great experience and I would definitely hire her again in the future for other fun events.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We do have a standard pricing system for our service. It is hourly for the most part unless the client requires more than one entertainer or more than two dancers. In those cases, we offer a discount for any additional people they want to hire.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First and foremost, I contact the client personally to obtain more information in regards to their job requirements. I want to make sure that we are able to fulfill their requirements to the best of our ability. After contacting the client initially, I then follow up with pictures and price options. I wait a reasonable amount of time for a response. If I do not get one, I will contact them again to make sure they received our e-mail.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 20 years in customer service related work including event planning, personnel, customer service, clerical, billing, receiving and all marketing.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I began by owning a performing arts studio for 11 years then morphed into a entertainment organization. I love working with the public in a positive way and what better way than to provide entertainment for a special event to make it even better!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with all types of customers from all walks of life and all ages. They are always pleasant, responsive and appreciative.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Our recent project was to provide backup dancers for a show entitled My Fair Ladies. They are four middle aged women who love to sing and the producer thought it was a great idea to add dancers to their show to give it something special. It is always awesome to dance to live music!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I always tell my customers that they know what is best for their event and we are there to help make it even better. I make sure to let them know that when they choose a service, to make sure the entertainers are professional and that their reviews are good. Nowadays, unfortunately, companies send pictures of the entertainers and do not send them out to the event. They send completely different entertainers and customers have told me of their disappointment.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Customers should always get everything discussed on the phone in writing preferably in a contract. Secondly, they should ask many questions and receive answers that make them confident in their choices. Thirdly, they should not be afraid to state exactly what they are looking for so they are not disappointed. Lastly, hopefully they know times, dates, addresses and their budget.
