It’s a perfectly reasonable question to ask!
First and foremost, atmosphere entertainers bring your event 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 are 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 our actors as a living extension of the theme. For instance, they are not there as a “performer”. They embody their character and are there as a flapper or copper etc., and they exist in the 1920s. As in.. if they see a cell phone they may have a big surprised reaction to it because of course they wouldn’t know what contraption that is - since cell phones don’t exist in their decade! (They may even ask the guest to show them how to use it!)
Whether it's circus, disco, holiday, winter wonderland, or another popular theme, we can accommodate a wide variety of concepts. (See more of past themes we've brought to life here.) Atmosphere entertainers truly 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! For instance, if the goal is for people to have fun on the dance floor, a party motivating Gatsby character would start teaching everyone how to do the Charleston! If the goal was for guests to participate in an activity such as a raffle, the party motivator would encourage the guests (in a fun and positive manner) to do so!
If you’ll be playing music and you hope to have people dancing the night away, this is the entertainment for you. When you hire our party motivators, you’ll be supplied with high-energy, super charismatic performers 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, as well as western line dances!
The specific mechanics of each event will differ, and sometimes our Party Motivators do things that are simple yet impactful (such as lead a conga line!) No matter what, our Party Motivators ensure an immersive + interactive experience for your guests & are perfect for weddings, corporate parties, and any type of celebration.
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 effective, functional, 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!
