The entire Emphasis Entertainments crew was unbelievable! They were perfect in every way. They were EXACTLY what I imagined and couldn't have dreamed up a better, nicer, or more talented group. They were an absolute pleasure to get to know, to be around, and to work with. They nailed their performances and every single person at the party enjoyed dancing with them, especially me. I received numerous compliments from everyone throughout the night. Gabriel should be proud to have such a professional group of dancers as part of his organization and he was just as great to work with. He was able to understand my vision and execute on it flawlessly. THANK YOU. My expectations were far, far exceeded. Kudos to Emphasis Entertainments!
Gabriel and his partner just about tore down the house. We hired him for my grandson's Bar Mitzvah party and they were so fabulous. Not only are they great entertainers, they were extremely respectful of our requests, worked non-stop keeping the party going and the kids entertained, and geared their performance to the mood and needs of the crowd. Many of our guests, who we expected to complain about the loud noise and all the excitement, told us it was the best party they had ever attended. Most of the credit for that goes to these very personable, nice and completely professional young men. Not only did they keep things moving, but they adapted to any change in the mood and tailored everything to our crowd. They are so talented, which they demonstrated with a short performance after which they taught some of the kids some of their moves (big thrill.) They both handled microphones and their language was impeccable as well as entertaining and lively. They were dressed to impress and boy did they impress! I think my son-in-law already hired them for my granddaughter's Bat Mitzvah in two years. In the meantime, our DJ who has his own entertainers that we did not use was so impressed he is going to start using Gabriel and his people. A number of our friends have asked for contact info so I expect Gabriel will be getting calls. Five stars is definitely not enough. These guys are over the top in every way!!
I hired a Ballerina, Faustine, to do a Ballet & Dance Themed Photography Shoot
-and she was just fantastic! She was very graceful, great to work with, very enthusiastic-and worked so hard to ensure that I got the best photos! She is very professional, arrived on time-and was prepared with her outfits as promised. I would VERY highly recommend her to anyone needing a Ballet dancer who can stand "En Pointe"!
This was supposed to be a surprise engagement and these guys outdid themselves. The experience and the advices that were given to me to make sure my gf would be surprised is amazing, these guys went out of their way to do so. A+++
Response from Emphasis Entertainments:
Thanks for the words and love Eric, we definitely enjoyed ourselves during the process, and were in total aww with the results we were able to get, thank you so much for the trust, and much love to you and your now fiance!
I reached out to Emphasis Entertainment looking for breakdancers to perform at my wedding as a surprise for my new husband and our guests. I had researched and chatted with other dance groups, but felt a different kind of energy and professionalism with Emphasis Entertainment. Since it was a surprise, they helped with planning and the introduction/execution, all behind closed doors and in coordination with our hotel and dj. Their performance was stellar! Unbelievably skilled! All sorts of amazing dance moves, tricks and sequences that had the audience with their jaws dropped open. Towards the end of their performance, they'll pulled in a few crowd members and got everyone dancing. It was great fun and definitely helped for an unforgettable night.
These guys are great! They included the audience and had kid participation.... and adults! They are amazing...all the way up here in Maine! Thank you so much!
These guys are just crazy talented !!!! Traveling from France to get married in New York, the birthplace of Hip-Hop, I knew I needed a breakdance crew to spice up our wedding reception with a little surprise ! They did an amazing show, everyone was stunned about their performance ! We had a fun time throwing some steps when they did a mini dance lesson to entertain our guests. Gabriel, their crew leader, was so professional and super easy to work with. MERCI BEAUCOUP, you guys are the best !
Emphasis Entertaimnents are by the best performers out there period !!! My son’s grad party was this past Sunday and they had our guests mesmerized by their spins and flips and hearing the oohs and aahs from everyone was a sight itself.
Not only is Gabriel one of the best dancer/performer in NY (superstar), he’s also the most courteous person to brainstorm and plan your event with.
Definitely checkout their videos on YouTube and gigsalad and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me here.
Gabriel we were blown away with you guys!
An excellent night was had by all-
We appreciate all you did and were so happy you stuck around for some added fun!
Dear Gabriel & Emphasis Entertainment!!!! Oh My God!!!

Alexia and her friends enjoyed every bit of it!!! All the performances truly left everyone at our party speechless. Words can not express how grateful we are to have found you guys. Gabriel, you are so talented as well as your group!!! You are incredibly professional and ridiculously on point with your craft!!!

From the opening communication to the day of the show, Gabriel, has been wonderful to work with. He was quick to respond to my inquiries. He adjusted to requests from the venue. The dancers came with a team outfit, music and choreography ready to go. Onstage, they were empowering and charismatic! The audience loved all of them! Would definitely work with them again. So, should you! Give this talented young dancers work!
Emphasis Entertainment’s team did a wonderful performance for my daughter’s birthday party! We were entertained by their dancing and cheerful spirit!
The company owner, Gabriel, was very detailed oriented, friendly, and offered great tips for my daughter's party. The dancers were wonderful, professional, engaging, and came early ready to perform. I would definitely book them again and looking forward to work with them again in the future!
Great show! Gabriel completed all of our paperwork and maintained proper communication at all times. The dancers team gave us a fun filled show that everyone enjoyed! They brought us all an absolute great time! When nobody wanted to dance at the party they proceeded to make everyone feel welcomed! Encouraged many to dance after they performed & it worked. A true party started and broke the ice with them, plus great looks and attitude. Book them and look no further, you won’t regret it!
Emphasis Entertainments was an absolute pleasure to work with. They are extremely professional and make what they do seem effortless.
It was such a pleasure to met them, and saw them perform. They are true artists with a passion for what they do. Everything was perfect, I cannot thank them enough for such an amazing evening!
If you’d like to add some flair to your next party and make it a memorable event, definitely consider break dancers from Emphasis Entertainments!
Emphasis Entertainment kicked off our party like no other. They got the crowd going! Perfect ice breakers. The way they remain engaged like as if they were part of the guest list. Their performance their music their professionalism was beyond great. Every one of our 80 odd guests had something great to say about them. Gabriel made it easy to organize and was a through professional. I will strongly recommend that they are the group to go to for your next event!!!!! Worth every penny!

Gabriel and his team did a dance performance at our daughter’s birthday party. The break dancing really livened up the party!
They had everyone excited and engaged right from the start of our event. They were friendly, professional, and extremely talented.
Absolute blast! They are definitely a must have for any party that might need a jump-start!
I hired Emphasis Entertainments for my cocktail party, on very short notice, and they were timely with them responses via text, very professional and reliable.
Very easy to work with Emphasis! They showed up on time and ready to go! Their performance was very energetic from begining to end. I was impressed with their professionalism, ideas and adaptability. I had them inside a small venue and they tailored the performance perfectly. Their performance was off the hook!
I would highly recommend if you're looking for a fun way to energize and crowd and get the party started. Thank you, Emphasis Entertainments!
My event production company has worked with Emphasis Entertainments on two events and each performance has been better than expected. The dancers were professional, well-instructed, original, and talented. They were able to engage the crowd and keep the momentum flowing for the rest of the evening. I will definitely be booking Emphasis again in the future!
I contacted Emphasis Entertainments to perform on my Anniversary Party.
Their performance was beyond words!! The choice of music was spot on, they wrapped up the hole audience with such a litheness.
It was just stunning from top to bottom, they made the evening perfect, just over the top.
I would highly recommend Emphasis Entertainments for a powerful and memorable performance for your party!
My sorority had our formal in Washington D.C. and working with these guys was great! The dancers were amazing and everyone had so much more fun because of them. They were quick with emailing me back and forth about details and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for dancers.
Emphasis Entertainment performed at my wedding on 11/25/2016, the day after Thanksgiving. They were very accommodating as I kept changing the time of their performance in the days before the event. They arrived on time and their dance skills were phenomenal. One small complaint I had was that they had agreed to stay a couple minutes after performing to get the crowd dancing on the open dance floor but I think they forgot about that. No big deal but overall nice experience and the guests liked it.
I hired these gentlemen to my daughters sweet 16 and boy was I glad I did, their professionalism and skills are beyond measure. Their performance is almost surreal, always kept in touch, I asked for a specific dance to a song and it was done with no hesitation. By far one of the best performances that I've ever witnessed. If you are looking to blow people's mind with a performance, this guys will do just that, but a thousand times better. I will recommend them for any type of event! Thank you very much guys for such experience!
my daughter just had her sweet sixteen this weekend .and i hire emphasis
as a surprised for her and i got to tell you wow this guys know how to start a party.
the group is awesome i will definitely hire them again for my party.
Emphasis Entertainment is without a doubt the best company to hire entertainers! Just ask and they have it. Gabriel is phenomenal! They're ptofessional, entertainers arrived early, gave performances that had everyone on their feet! What can I say except, Thanks Gabriel & Emphasis, I'll sing your praises to all anytime! Couldn't have done it without you.
Hired emphasis for a Bar Mitzvah last month and they were fabulous! Gabriel was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of back and forth emails and tons of paperwork we had them sign. They were punctual and super professional at the event, and brought tons of energy. Will definitely book them again in the future!
We had this group come in for a birthday. They did an amazing amount of performances. This group kept the audience engaged throughout the entire night. They did a performance and joined us when the dance floor was open to guests. The dancers are capable of dancing with all ages from children to the older generation. They are also able to dance to any type of music.
This is a highly recommended group of talented, young, enthusiastic people who show their passion and love through dance. The audience was mesmoraized the entirety of their time they were present.
Highly recommended and would definitely hire them again!
We had two break dancers and there we great. They were very easy to work with and easily adapted to the unique setting in which our event took place. It was such a pleasure to watch them perform.
I threw an 80's party so knew I needed great break dancers, but these guys are so much more!! From the moment they came out their energy and vitality was contagious. Their act was fantastic - they had the crowd mesmerized. And following their show they had everyone on the dance floor. Couldn't ask for better entertainers!
I called Emphasis Entertainments with a very specific request. I wanted a break dancer to come and pop & lock, break dance and "do the robot" in a ROBOT costume for my son's 5th birthday. EE went above and beyond to find the right dancer for us. When Cookie arrived, I knew we were in for a treat. This beautiful woman danced from her SOUL and even wore the "robot" costume (ended up to be more "beautiful girl from the moon" than actual nuts and bolts robot - but much better than I had imagined) I asked her to wear. She looked beautiful and danced PERFECTLY! I highly recommend EE for all of your entertainment needs. If they were able to find someone to fulfill my specific request only a week before the event - then they can definitely fulfill yours! Note: I gave 3 stars for 'communication' because my calls were not returned right away. I think they didn't call because they didn't have an answer for me (hadn't found the perfect dancer for my needs) - but in the future I would hope they would just call back immediately because I might have given up and tried to find a dancer from another company by that point. People like to know that you are 'working on it'. If you don't return calls promptly it might seem that you have forgotten about the client, etc. OTHERWISE - once we finally did speak on the phone to confirm, the kindness and professionalism was definitely there. Thanks.
I hired Emphasis Entertainments to break dance for my summer camp (ages 7-13). They were fantastic! Their break dance performance was outstanding and their ability to get ALL 150 campers up and dancing was astounding. I would undoubtedly use them again and again. They were professional, punctual and appropriately adapted their show to our young age group. Thank you, gentlemen!
Emphasis Entertainments provided 3 dancers for our video shoot in Washington Square Park. The shoot was for a project called The Sonnet Project hosted by The New York Shakespeare Exchange. It was a run-and-gun shoot and EE was not only up for anything, but they were enthusiastic and kept the energy up the entire time. Not to mention, their talent was obvious. I caught myself watching the dancers instead of the camera more than once. If you need a a group of dancers I wouldn't hesitate to give EE a call. I highly recommend.

I called Gabriel at 11 last night (I know! I had an AHA moment) to ask for a Choreographer to help us with a video production that we wanted to put together at a very last minute for the National Customer Service Week which is next week. I had a team of 20 employees that wanted to be part of this video, dancing to the HAPPY song for our HQ office. Gabriel and I were in touch until about 1am and in such short notice, where he was able to book this amazing Choreographer for our team and he prepared the agreement paperwork, etc.....which all was finished in couple of hours!!!! He was a very professional and friendly person (and believe me I pretty much drove him crazy with so many calls/texts and questions!) So, he's got my stamp of approval for certain. On his team, Gabriel found me the perfect and most patient and talented person with such kind heart, by the name Anna. And of course it didn't hurt the fact that she was this drop-dead-gorgeous girl on top of it all. I can not begin to describe how fabulous and professional Anna worked with bunch of corporate goofballs with absolutely no rhythm, and a very tight schedule.
All I can say is this.... I can not wait to have more personal and professional events coming up so I can book more business with the Emphasis Entertainments group of talented and amazing people. And I like to thank Gabriel and especially Anna from the bottom of my heart for making this video and experience, the "HAPPYest"production and experience ever... I received so many positive feedback from the employees and my boss. You guys Rock!
If you are considering booking a dance crew.... look No further!!! This group is not only professional and easy to work with, but they will make your event one to remember. I booked them for my family dance party.... and I received nothing but positive responses. The kids enjoyed every moments as well as the parents. Their performance was top notch, and everyone stayed engaged the entire time. It went so well I booked them again..... I'm hoping to book them every event if possible. Believe me you will Not be disappointed! Absolutely Awesome and Amazing!!! -Glitz and Glam Kids
Emphasis Entertainments was flat out amazing at our beauty event. Our guests were entertained and enjoyed all their performances. Thank you Gabriel for such an awesome crew! :)
What can I say, Gabriel and his team are a group of professional, lovely and talented guys who would add a sparkle to any party! They performed at our event at Tribeca 360 and brought the place to an absolute frenzy! Thank you so much I would highly recommend these guys.
They really made the crowd go wild, this kids have so much energy! they remind me of me on my young years, except for the moves, haha!
