1st Birthday Party Performance

I hired Element for a client's 1st birthday party and we had an aerialist and stilt walker. I was very impressed with their professionalism, fantastic performance, and willingness to interact with the guests. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again in the future.

Working with ELEMENT was completely seamless!

Working with ELEMENT was completely seamless! We originally were going to work with a different company before we heard about ELEMENT, but the company was lagging on communication and professionalism. Our first call after this terrible experience was to ELEMENT, and it was a completely different world. Derrin was responsive, professional, and a pleasure to work with. Derrin and her team that day basically took care of themselves. This was such a blessing. Event day is usually chaotic, and ELEMENT added a calm factor to it all. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We cannnot wait to work with you again!

Very Professional

Element was a very exciting group. The entertainers were very skilled and professional. The guests really loved their performance. Working with Derrin was truly a pleasure. I would highly recommend Element. They really help enhance my theme and set the mood for next year's convention.

Cirque Du Henry - Henry Medical Center Foundation

We solicited the assistance of ELEMENT to help take our annual black tie event to the next level of development and we could not have made a better decision in doing so. ELEMENT's involvement in our event was incredible and brought a flair to the Southern Crescent that had never been experienced before. Our guests were mesmerized and captivated all night by the various acts we incorporated.

Review by Carson G.

Usually, banquets are boring--the dry chicken breasts, the small salads, and the long speeches; but the intermissions with ELEMENT acrobats livened up the evening. ELEMENT's sophisticated, Cirque-style performance beautifully complimented the event. ELEMENT's performances seamlessly bridged other portions of the program. Additionally, these segments added a conversation piece to the banquet.

Review by Bella R.

ELEMENT performers were exceptional!!! Everything from the juggling to the dancers and the stilt walker to the various aerialist . . . It was perfect. I wanted the ultimate party and atmosphere for my reception, and you provided that and so much more! I loved glancing up and seeing you all in poses on the various euipment. My husband and I feel as though you were the best investment we made at our reception. I will be recommending you to everyone!
