Once the theming, venue and styling of a party has been chosen, next is the entertainment.
Our children’s entertainers are one of our most important aspects of our parties. We are lucky enough to work with some of the best entertainers in the business. From singers to dancers to balloon modelling and magicians, we work with them all to ensure all of the children are thoroughly entertained throughout the entire party and that everything runs smoothly. Whats more, we ensure our entertainers fit the theme of the party and dress accordingly.
In this post I am going to be introducing one of our favourite entertainers, Sarah-Jane Barlow. Sarah-Jane has many different skills including dancing, acting and singing. She completed a 3 year acting/musical theatre course at one of the countries leading performing arts colleges, the ‘Masters Performing Arts College’. She became a children’s entertainer five years ago, and has since entertained at many, many of our different parties, along with various other projects.
Sarah-Jane is brilliant at ensuring every child is included in the party. She is fantastic at interacting with the children and is always dancing and singing and playing lots of different games with her many different props. She is a very talented balloon modeller which is great for everyone, especially the quieter or older children that are perhaps too shy to join in with the rest of the activities.
She has bundles of energy, a huge smile and a great passion for the job. I recently asked her what her favourite part of being a children’s entertainer was…
“My favourite part of the job?.. when the children are just so damn cute! They are so innocent and they really believe I am the real Sleeping Beauty or Rapunzel or whichever character I happen to be on that day. The little ones I’d say between 3-6 years are my favourite ages to entertain. The look on their faces is just a picture and they believe that Tinkerbell has really come all the way from Neverland just to have a lovely party with them all. Also working with children and a live audience I never know what I’m going to get thrown at me (not literally.. well not yet anyway!) I have to be quick and think on my feet, which as a performer, its great to be tested as it keeps me on my toes! I also love their honesty of just saying exactly what’s on their little minds…you pretty much know where you stand with children. They’ll just come right out and say it! I have had such fun over the past five years and it has also been a huge learning curve for me!”
Here at Les Enfants we would thoroughly recommend booking an entertainer for you child’s special day. Not only would it take the pressure of entertaining off you, but it really does mean that your child will have the best party possible. All of the entertainment mentioned can be tailored to your child’s or your parties specific needs or wants. If you are considering booking an entertainer and would like to hear any more information about Sarah-Jane or any of our other entertainers please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
