Great team to work with! Very flexible with our event plans, and very professional.
Eilysha and a co-performer did a great job with various juggling acts at my event. They circumambulated two floors of a university campus building and performed for various onlookers. They encouraged the transient audience to participate in the juggling itself and were eager to infect others with their enthusiasm for their art.
We hired Eilysha to teach kids and then to do a performance for them. She had the attention of 20 14 year old kids and that is not easy! The performance was beautiful. I really could have watched her all night long. Graceful movements, lyrical motion, sensual flow, beauty in fire and form. Could not say enough.
Katy Clark (one of Eilysha's team member) came as Princess Belle to our toddler's birthday party. She was awesome! She did face-painting, read fairy tales to kids, made bracelets with them and did a sweet juggling performance. She was very engaging and had the attention of almost 10-12 kids (ages 3-6 y). She was very accommodating and catered the program to our needs. My daughter and her friends loved Katy!
I hired Eilysha for multiple events between 2015-2016. She was highly professional and fit various different venues according to my request. She has a great attitude and was a pleasure to work with.
