December is a special month for everyone, and specially for the New York entertainment scene. Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve, it’s easy to say that it’s a month full of celebrations, therefore, a month full of events for our NYC breakdancers crew. We get to perform dressed as Elfs, Santa Helpers, Santa Claus, and many more fun outfits.But this year, our client Eric made it extra special. He looked for dancers to hire to help him perform for his surprise proposal!! (...)


Professional, Talented, Absolutely Amazing!!


Emphasis Entertainment is without a doubt the best company to hire entertainers! Just ask and they have it. Gabriel is phenomenal! They're professional, 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. Many thanks!

Exciting and Entertaining


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! Thanks.

Beyond Satisfied!


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!

Break dancing in Wash. Square Park


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.

Fantastic and VERY professional!


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!

WOW!! Amazing Dancers, Entertainers, MCs, Motivators


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!!
