Yuri's interactive variety show includes dancing and singing, magic, parades, juggling, stories, and more. No two parties are the same, as Yuri tailors each performance to the moods and interests of his young audience, ages 2-9, and engages everyone in the festivities - including the adults. Yuri's show is often described as comedy for kids.
Parties are available in the greater Boston area and western Massachusetts,
Yuri was absolutely the best I could have hired for our party. He entertained all the kids ranging in 4 to 9 years old and had every child's full attention. The kids had an amazing time and laughed so much. Yuri's parade was the best! The kids all took pride in being a part of the parade. I have no hesitation in hiring him again nor referring Yuri to friends. If you are looking to see delight in your child's eyes and pure fun, Yuri is the one! The adults had fun being a part of the entertainment at the end as well. I must also say that Yuri was courteous and professional. So grateful I found him!
Yuri - The Prince of Color - came to our home to help us celebrate the 7th birthday of our son...along with 30 kids (ages 3-8!) and many parents!! He performed for an hour and had everyone -- from little ones and grandparents -- giggling, dancing, singing...basically having a blast! The show was original and creative and, of course, colorful. What was really impressive was how attentive he was to the group, adjusting the stimulation and energy as needed to keep everyone engaged and having fun...and joined together in the experience of celebration. He also has a great singing voice and a wonderful way of communicating with children. We were absolutely thrilled that Yuri was able to perform at our son's birthday. Thank you, Yuri!!
Yuri was amazing, and we were very happy we hired him for our daughter's 2.y.o. birthday in the park. First, he was very professional and responded to phone-calls and emails fast, which made arranging his performance very easy. On the day of the birthday he showed up well in advance and scouted the area for a nice spot where kids could sit in the shade. For 45 minutes of his show kids (20 of them aged from 2 to 10) were really paying attention, participating, laughing and giggling, and everyone was just really delighted with all the tricks and games he had planned for them. I would confidently recommend him to anyone planning a kids party! :) Thank you Yuri!
Yuri was simply great. We celebrated our kids (3years n 1year) combined birthday party and trust me all the kids from age group 1-9 enjoyed a lot...
He was very Friendly and a great entertainer... Thanks Yuri for making the party a success...
Yuri did a great job keeping 18 kids form 4-7 years old and their parents old engaged and laughing for an hour. It was an awesome party, everyone had a blast!
We hired Yuri for our daughter's birthday party. We had around 20 kids between the age 2-9. Yuri was awesome and got every kids attention during his performance. One of the kid was talking about his show even after the event. We are so glad we chose him.
I hired Yuri to come to our house for my sons fourth birthday party. When he arrived he was super personable and polite and was nice enough to wait a while until all of our guests arrived. Yuri told jokes, did some magic tricks, involved both kids and adults and had a lot of fun props. He used a parachute for some games and brought a ton of musical instruments so the kids could create a parade. I am an early childhood teacher and I was impressed by his kid skills. Everyone had a great time, especially my son!! I would hire him again and recommend him.
Yuri performed for my 4-year-old son's birthday party recently and he was a total hit for about 25 kids! He started with bubbles and then went into some very humorous magic and then to music! The kids were laughing and amazed and fully engaged for 45 minutes, which is no small feat. Even the adults were entertained. Highly recommend Yuri!
Our 55 and older community held a Family Super Sundae Sunday event to bring together our residents and their families. We wanted the 15 grandchildren attending to have special entertainment just for them. Yuri was recommended and didn't disappoint. The children were enchanted, engaged and thoroughly entertained! The smiles on their faces were priceless! All clearly enjoyed by young and old alike.
We just had a birthday party with a mixed age group. Prince Yuri was perfect. He was professional responding to emails and showed up early to set up. Show started on time and he had everyone entertained. My daughter loves him!! He blew bubbles did magic tricks and even had musical instruments for kids to play with. His show was even entertaining for adults. I highly recommend Yuri. He made our party so special.
Yuri arrived on time for our boys' 5th birthday party. He was flexible to start a bit early. All the kids including their parents were entertained. He offered parents to get involved which was pretty awesome!
Yuri performed at my son's 4th birthday party and i had kids from age 2-10 they were all equally entertained by Yuri. The parade with musical instruments is a big hit.
We had Yuri at our granddaughters 4th birthday we had twenty children between the ages of 1 1/2 to 8 years old and he kept them entertained for an hour. There were plenty of giggles, belly laughes and WOW's. Thank you Yuri you were fantastic!
Biiiig Thank you to Yuri for making our daughters 2 year party ROCK :):):)
Had a wonderful experience right from our initial interaction with him and his timing was bang on.Once he started his antics, it was awesome fun for all d kids & even adults too ! Very good at engaging kids of all ages and can sense the crowd feel and reaction and builds on that ! Makes sure all kids are involved & kept coming up with different stuff for the kids to do ...... really made a big difference having him lighten up our party and kept all of us in high spirits ... very committed and easy going to work with :):):) will definitely want YURI at more of our parties and hoping that he obliges :D:D:D
Cheers ! Tnx YURI... u ROCK !!!
Kept 15 kids between 1 and 5 happy the whole time. They had a blast laughing, dancing, singing. Thank you Yuri!
We liked Yuri so much we hired him two years in arrow for my daughter. Came early to set up and put on a fabulous show. The children loved it. Highly recommend!!
My seven year old LoLo had such a great time he asked if Yuri could come over "every day"
Yuri clearly loves what he does and his love of children is very genuine. He was truly awesome and super funny and made lolo's birthday really special. Kids and adults loved him!!!
I hired Yuri for my oldest daughter's 6th birthday party and then again for my youngest daughter's 5th birthday party. Both included a mix of children ages 4-8, boys and girls. Everyone had so much fun, including the adults watching and participating! Both of my daughters, at some point in the mix at their own party, hugged me and exclaimed, "Thanks for the best birthday party ever!" It doesn't get much better than that!
Yuri came to bring his magic to out group of 16-20 4/5 year olds. He had them enthralled, laughing, engaged - everything we wanted with such a big crowd.
That he is able to engage and delight these small ones (for an hour!) without loud and obnoxious theatrics, but with attention and presence is really quite amazing.
Could not have been happier. Thanks Yuri!
Thanks to Yuri again for the show. Our 5 y.o. daughter is happy, and now she says that among all the things for her birthday, she is "thinking about the clown all the time". :)
Some of the kids told her later that they had not seen a clown before. So we are happy to have delivered this piece of magic to their lives thanks to Yuri.
I've already shared his cards with my colleagues.
Yuri was amazing at my son's 4th birthday party. The laughter never stopped. Kids were enjoying themselves so much! Thank you Yuri for the wonderful birthday party!
We had Yuri "Prince of Color" entertain at our 3 year old's birthday party and he was great! The children were smiling, dancing, singing, and having a ton of fun the whole time. Yuri did a nice job at entertaining both the younger and older kids and was very flexible with timing, venue changes, etc. I highly recommend him for a child's birthday party!
Yuri was fantastic at my son's 3rd birthday party! The children ranged in age from 2-10, and they all loved him! Even the adults had a lot of laughs!! His show is very interactive, and there's never a dull moment. Fun for everyone!
Response from Yuri "Prince of Color":
Thank you Jennifer. The kids made me laugh too. I'm glad the adults had fun. I try to engage them in the festivities also.
Yuri made my daughters 3rd birthday amazing!! He was great with capturing everyone's attention and the kids loved him!! I highly suggest hiring him for any age birthday.
Our daughters 1st Birthday party was that much more awesome thanks to Yuri! From the minute he began his show the kids couldn't keep their eyes off of him! Yuri kept their attention and entertained them for so long that even the older guests noticed! I would most definitely recommend Yuri for children entertainment and hope to see him again!
This was my first experience hiring a party entertainer and I was greatly satisfied. The kids had fun, my son 2 weeks later is still talking about Yuri. I would recommend Yuri to anyone.
We invited Yuri to perform at our daughter's 5th birthday and I can just say, it was awesome. Kids were entertained the whole time, very involved in the whole show and when they did the parade, I thought the whole house will collapse :-) I could see only laugh and excitement in everybody's eyes. Great show and definitely recommend it to everybody.
Yuri did a wonderful job entertaining a pretty big group of kids at my daughter's 4th birthday party. Even though there were a lot of different ages, he kept them all engaged with his bubbles, magic tricks, singing, and especially the musical parade and parachute. He was a big hit--I highly recommend him!
My twins loved their birthday because Yuri made it all so much fun! He was able to entertain kids from the age of 2.5 to 4.5. All had a blast. I loved the fact that my son talked how he liked the clown. My kids don't speak English, and it made no difference because Yuri took extra efforts to say some words in Russian which the kids really liked. The party was a great success because of Yuri's great show. Thank you!
The kids had such a blast. They were all 2-5 and had a good time and thought Yuri was SO funny. He did a great job with all sorts of activities and had their full attention :) He was on time and professional and made our lives a lot easier!
A big thank you to Yuri for entertaining about a dozen or so 7 year olds at our daughter's recent birthday party. The kids were delighted with his antics - bubbles, music, magic, and some great opportunities for making musical noise! The kids laughed and laughed (a beautiful sound!) and the adults were engaged as well! A fun time was had by all.
Yuri was a very fun performer. The kids loved him and his show. He was punctual and very friendly. Perfect for my kids party. The kids ages were from 2-10 and they had a great time with Yuri. Thank you Yuri!!!
I had Yuri for my son's 5th birthday party and all the kids had so much fun. I have since recommened him to friends. My son has asked me if he can come to his bithday again next year. Well worth the money.
We hired Yuri do a general kids entertainment show for our son's first birthday and he was great. His show is very tasteful and involves both kids and parents which was great for the adults as well. There were bubbles for the little ones, magic tricks and jokes with nursery rhymes for the slightly older kids and lots of fun activities for everyone. I did considerable research and found him to be very competitively priced as well. I would definitely recommend Yuri.
Yuri put on a wonderful show and all the kids had a great time. We had kids ranging from 1 to 8 and they all took part and had a fantastic time. The kids never became bored as Yuri had so many different acts from blowing bubbles, juggling, to the kids favorite the marching band. Great entertainment thank you so much!
Yuri was a delight to watch at my kid's birthday party... He was amazing,the kids and elders had a gr8 time .
Thanks yuri for making our party special..
The Prince of Color performed at our school in the North End of Boston and was excellent. Yuri really engages the children. The parents were so impressed with Yuri that four parents immediately booked him for their children's parties.
W had fun today with Yuri! He captivated our crowd of 45 children aged 2.9 to 6. For 45 minutes, they danced, sang and chased bubbles together. They formed a band, marched and played. Yuri certainly knows how to handle preschoolers with warm humor, strength and wisdom. His magic made them wonder as they helped him create magic out of thin air!
My 4 year old son and his birthday party guests were thrilled and captivated by Yuri's performance. They were so involved and he knew how to make them laugh and smile through out. My son is still trying to figure out Yuri's magic tricks and the parents loved Yuri too. Such a gentle and warm personality. Cheers Yuri!
Yuri performs monthly at the Amherst Family Center. The children (infants to fives) eagerly participate with Yuri's songs, dances, parades, bubbles, and magic. The regulars remind Yuri not to miss their favorite act.
As Director of the UMASS Amherst Office of Family Resources I have hired Yuri "Prince of Color" many times over the past several years-ever since his move to Western Massachusetts.Yuri is a wonderful performer with both very young and young children and his interactive performances always keep the children engaged and having fun. Yuri is also able to tailor his Prince of Color program so that he can support both one-time events or several weeks of programming.
"Yuri brings special magic and delight to his birthday parties for kids. My
7 year old granddaughter had "The Prince of Color" at her birthday party and
the kids are still talking about it! Yuri involves and captivates the kids
and all the photos of the party show the kids laughing! What could be
The 3-5 year olds all giggled & squealed with joy. All of them participated with ease, & greatly enjoyed themselves during the interactive show. My son loved having Yuri at his 5th bday party.
"For the last 7 years Yuri has staged children's entertainment and led parades to the delight of kids of all ages and their parents at the annual Harvest Festival at Simple Gifts a North Amherst, MA community farm. Always colorful and engaging, Yuri mixes up great fun and brings great energy to his performances
"Yuri performed for my daughter's fifth birthday party. His magic tricks, interactive songs and funny antics kept our group entertained and laughing. We especially enjoyed the musical parade through the house. He is an experienced crowd controller and all the kids had fun, even our older 10 year old nephews. A great choice for elementary aged children."
Price Range: $150-175

Yuri has worked both as a pre-school teacher and a play leader for the Gymboree play program for many years before venturing into party entertainment.
The emphasis on the show is interactive. The children are often up and moving whether it is dancing, singing, marching in a parade with a wide variety of musical instruments or participating in the magic act. Although the age range is 2-9 younger and older children enjoy watching the antics as do the parents.
He performs for small and large birthday parties, weddings, corporate events and at schools.
