Midwest Book Review – February 2013
Dear Ms. Janis -
I'm a parent of two twin boys who were at Helen's birthday party yesterday.
Besides the magic you had over all the children, one of my boys has autism. He rarely follows instructions and big parties usually send him into a corner where he plays quietly by himself.
Right from the start he sat on the carpet and followed along to your program with such delight. As I saw him dance with the scarves along with other children I started to cry. It was such a gift for me. And more importantly, he was so proud and happy to be part of things. Usually he can't keep up, even though he loves music. He stayed with the program through most of it which is a miracle considering his focus issues.
You really have a gift. And you gave me a big one yesterday.
First Birthday Party
Ms. Janis performed at my daughter's first birthday party and she was awesome! My daughter and the other children at the party had a great time and enjoyed her songs. We especially loved all the props that she brought, a bubble machine! Need I say more. Thank you Ms. Janis for making Serena's first birthday celebration a memorable one!
Happy, Wonderful & Professional
Ms. Janis returned my calls and emails, and showed up to my daughter's 5th birthday party on time. She patiently waited for some of my tardy little guests, then started her show with exuberance. All the kids were happy and entertained to be a part of her performance, so I will definitely recommend her for your event and book her again for mine.
Janis was wonderful!
Janis entertained at my daughter's 1st birthday party of a dozen 1 year olds and their caregivers. Janis perfectly tailored the songs, style and format to the audience and the kids and adults had a wonderful time. The babies all enjoyed the scarves, musical instruments and parachute. My daughter was mesmerized. Janis has a beautiful voice and is a pleasure to work with - I highly recommend her!
We love Miss Janis!
Janis was the entertainment for my 3-year-old's birthday party and both him and my 22-month-old were entranced (as were the adults)! We couldn't have been happier with her - she sang songs, played with props the children loved, even brought a parachute. It was a rainy day and Janis was able to adopt to being inside.
The kids loved her and we all had a great time - we will definitely be having her back for our next party!
Janis is fab!
We had Miss Janis perform at our daughter's 4th birthday party and she was fabulous. She captured the attention of 35 children with fun songs, movement, scarves, music "eggs", a parachute and bubbles. She connected with our daughter immediately, as well as the group of children.
