Children’s Entertainers

How We Create Awesome Entertainers!

Our professional children’s entertainers and sports coaches are loved up and down the country, find out what it takes to become a DNA Kids entertaining superstar!

It begins with having certain endearing inner qualities, such as a fun personality, confidence, patience, a great attitude, kindness, passion and a desire to please.

Couple these endearing qualities with diverse performance related backgrounds, such as acting, dancing, kids’ holiday club reps, performing arts, singing and coat-style entertainers and you have the perfect candidates for our recruitment and training teams to start working their magic!

Talent Spotting

Finding the right candidates to transform into our next lively kid’s entertainers is the job of our dedicated recruitment team. Their job is to find the hidden gems from the thousands of applicants we screen annually.

We do this through a meticulous selection process with each stage serving a different purpose to allow us to make a more informed decision. Our rigorous selection process consists of the following four stages:

  • Online Application
  • Telephone Interview
  • Skype Audition/Interview
  • Live Audition/Interview

If a candidate successfully completes all four stages of our selection process they are then accepted on to our comprehensive entertainer training programme.

Superstars in the Making

Reaching the training stage is an accomplishment for any candidate. Our intensive training programme is carried out over a 3 month period and continues to form a part of our thorough selection process.

Our training programme has been developed from years of experience in the children’s entertainment industry and is carried out by experienced, professional DNA Kids trainers. We train our future children’s entertainers using the following methods:

  • Training Days – at our training venue with professional DNA Kids trainers.
  • Event Training – carefully controlled real world training with our experienced entertainers.
  • Visual Learning – our trainees have access to over 130 training videos.
  • Theory Learning – our trainees are provided with a 120 page training folder.

Maintaining the Magic

Maintaining high standards is just as important as setting and reaching them in the first place. Once our entertainers are fully qualified, we work hard to ensure our exacting standards shine through at every customer’s party through several monitoring processes and incentives:

  • Satisfaction Questionnaires – sent to every customer and used for each entertainer’s personal development.
  • Quarterly Reward Bonuses – rewarding our entertainers for a great job acts as another good reason to impress our customers.
  • On-going Mentoring – via our training team and online DNA Kids entertainer community.
  • Entertainer’s Reference Manual – our entertainers have access to over 290 pages of in-depth information about our party games and routines.

I booked a disco party and the moment Dizzy Dale turned up I knew I made the the right choice for the party, from start to finish he was amazing. He kept the kids thoroughly entertained and you could tell how much of a great time they all had.
