Response from Jenevieve Perizaad:
Thank you so much!! We were honored to be a part of your fabulous luau, we're so glad everyone enjoyed it, and we would love to be invited back!! Mahalo nui loa =)
I cannot say enough good things about Jenevieve! She performed as Moana at my daughter's birthday, and all of the girls were completely dazzled by her! She made the event so fun, and even the mommies got in on the fun and learned to hula! She was incredibly responsive, helpful, and great with all of the girls. It was a wonderful day, and she was a huge part of that!
Best decision for entertainment. My father N law had a smile the whole time. Even though it was crazy weather she made it. And we couldn't have asked for any better of a performance. Makes me want to take a belly dancing class. A+ performance. Thank you.
Response from Jenevieve Perizaad:
Thank you Spring! Your father-in-law was such a great sport and you and your family were so wonderful and welcoming! I recommend belly dance classes for anyone, they're great in so many ways. Definitely look into it! I taught for years in Missouri and hopefully I'll be teaching in Texas soon :)
Jenevieve is such a lovely Goddess and a superb entertainer! Who couldn't love and adore her adorable personality. She puts so much effort into her performances with alot of pizzazz and makes it look effortless. Jen is such a breath of fresh air. I would reccommend her to anyone & everyone looking to host a special event needing a performer and I personally will be hiring her to belly dance at my husband's 50th birthday bash next year~
I've worked with dancers in the past and had good experiences, but Jenevieve is cut above the rest. She is awesome! Not only did she exceed all of our high expectations, she was incredibly easy to work with. Would definitely work with Jenevieve again!!
She did a wonderful job and everyone just loved her. She did a great program and then was so gracious to ask everyone that wanted, to learn how to dance. She was just wonderful.
Jenevieve was so accomodating and really took the time to make the 95th birthday party a great experience for everyone. She was attentive to details and made sure to respond in a timely manner on any questions we had. I would not hesitate to book her again for an event!
