What is Atmosphere Entertainment?
Updated: May 19
It’s a perfectly reasonable question to ask!
First and foremost, atmosphere entertainers bring your theme to life. In addition, these performers can take on functional tasks (of course staying in character the entire time), such as passing out items and guiding guests in the right direction. What may seem like a small gesture can really take your party, conference, or premiere to whole new levels. So, let’s get into it! What are some popular atmosphere entertainment options and why should you hire them for your next event?
Atmosphere actors help to set the mood of your party. They’re especially beneficial for themed events as they truly take the motif over the top - in the best way!
For example, let's say you’re recreating a 1920s speakeasy for your next soiree. You tell people to dress up and play the part, but let’s be honest - it can be hard to get everyone to put on their formal attire, let alone add some feathers and pearls to the mix. That’s not to say that attendees won’t get into the spirit, but it's always beneficial to have performers as a living extension of the theme.
That’s where our roaming actors and characters come into play. Whether it's circus, disco, holiday, winter wonderland, or another popular theme, we can accommodate a wide variety of themes. (See more of past themes we've brought to life here.) Staying in full character the entire time, atmosphere entertainers bring the era to life in ways that decorations and dress codes can’t quite accomplish.
Party motivators are what they sound like - they motivate the party! If you’ll be playing music and you hope to have people dancing the night away, this is the atmosphere entertainment for you. When you hire our party motivators, you’ll be supplied with high-energy, super charismatic dancers who know how to get people out of their seats. These dancers are well-versed in crowd-pleasing dances such as Cha Cha Slide, Electric Slide, Macarena, Cupid Shuffle, and more!
Party motivators are perfect for weddings, sweet sixteens, quinceañeras, and New Year's Eve celebrations. Always full of pizzazz and ready to dance with your guests, people have the time of their lives with a party motivator on the scene.
Our totally customizable Living Tables can carry beverages, hors d’oeuvres, or items of your choice as they stroll the event floor, delighting everyone they pass. The drinks and items are held in the costume of the entertainer wearing it and it's completely mobile. It’s certainly not something you see every day and guests get a thrill from the novelty of it!
In addition to being exciting and dynamic, atmosphere entertainment is truly effective and so much more than you might think. So, what else can our atmosphere performers do?
Serve Drinks or Pass Out Party Favors
Our Living Tables and atmosphere actors are available to walk around with beverages. It’s an interactive way to get your guests talking to the entertainment and engaged! Party favors are fun to give out as well whether it’s light up gear to pump up the dance floor or donor forms to encourage people to give money to your charity.
Available for Photo Ops
Our performers love taking photos with your guests! (And it's a bonus if you have a photo booth or any type of backdrop or step-and-repeat, as that makes a great location!)
Greeting People and Offering Help
Atmosphere entertainment is also a great way to set the tone of your event. Our entertainers can greet guests and offer directions, all while staying in character that’s true to your theme. It’s a watering two plants with one hose situation as our entertainers are helpful + entertaining!
