The Culture Queen was great. She was very professional and provided a great show. All of the kids loved her!
Response from Culture Queen:
Thank you so much for your support. It was an honor to meet you and I really appreciate the opportunity to celebrate with your royal family!
I hired Culture Queen for my son's 2nd birthday party and we had a ball! I called her the DAY BEFORE the event because our other performer had canceled on us, and she immediately told us she would do it. She showed up when she said she would to set up and started the performance exactly on time. Both the kids and adults had a great time participating, and lots of our guests told us how much they enjoyed it afterwords. Overall, she was a dynamic, professional, performer with high energy and she kept the kids entertained. I would definitely recommend!
Response from Culture Queen:
Thank you so very much for your support! I had a super time with your royal family!
Culture queen was very engaging and fun. After she left the children were still talking about her.
