Oh my gosh!  You were awesome yesterday as the Theater Workshop instructor…thank you!  Really amazing…  I asked the kids today, what was the favorite part of their week and they said yesterday with Miss Amy!  Well, truth be told, one child said everyday was her favorite!  So thank you again!

Amy was AWESOME!!! We had a pirate-themed birthday party for our 4-yo son, but we wanted a magic show. So, Amy put a pirate flare on her magic show. She showed up in true pirate attire with the pirate-accent and everything. Our son was in awwww as were the rest of his little friends. Her magic show was entertaining and captivating (even for adults as my husband can attest to). I would definitely hire her again in a heart beat as she was the fantastic. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. Thank you, AMY, for making Zachary's birthday party such a success!

Hey Amy,
I wanted to thank you again for a fantastic job at our Mardi Gras event last night. I got so many compliments that this was out best party ever and a lot of that was because of you. You are fabulous!  -

Amy - Thank you again for such a wonderful magic show at Wyatt’s party. You were the best and Wyatt is already requesting that you be at his party next year! I would say that he had his best birthday party yet and your show was a huge part of making it such a success.  Thanks a million! - Lisa Lanier 704-618-06**

Amy, as a Stilt Walker, came to Carnival Charlotte 2011 at the Ballroom of the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte during reception. Her costume was magnificent, but even more so was her interaction with the guests! Everybody wanted to get a picture taken with her. Her physical skills to walk on stilts, move around, bend over and hug and talk to people are extraordinary. In the name of the Board of the Latin American Women's Association (LAWA),I thank Amy Arpan for her performance, and recommend her highly! - Anneliese Horst Foerster LAWA Chair of the Board (gig ID #856517)

Amy was an amazing addition to our event! She went above and beyond our expectations for the event and made it extra special for our daughter! We had approximately 50 guests (20 of which were 3 yr olds)and had the kids and adults engaged from start to finish. I would highly recommend using her and I will definitely use her again!! -Traci M, Charlotte, NC (gig ID# 806314)

Amy Arpan of Illusions & Confusions MADE our son's birthday AWESOME!! Very personable with kids and truly "gets them!" She has an insight that many people don't have when dealing with children and she takes the time with each, stays in character, is quick on her feet and kept them awestruck the entire time! She had them in the palm of her hand and truly made Brett's Circus Party, one of a kind! I would highly recommend Amy for your son or daughter's birthday occasion ~ you will be very impressed at her energy level and what she brings to this terrific experience. Enjoyed working with her from beginning to end! Top notch professional! Love her!!! Cheryl V

I would highly recommend everyone to Amy Arpan's Illusions And Confusions. She has put on a great show for a children's network. It was well prepared and the children enjoyed her thoroughly. She gets everyone involved in her show and it was important to us that everyone not only watched the show, but that she got the children to participate as well. Amy is a wonderful person, and she is very open minded and friendly as well. I want to thank you on behalf of the children and they enjoyed your present so much. If you guys choose Amy, you would be pleased with all the shows she has to offer.

Dear Amy,

If it is not one but one person who keeps on talking about Sydnie's Princess party! I just am so glad Sydnie had such a special birthday because of your magic touches. I can't wait to be able to have such a special party for my youngest daughter, Tori.

I really appreciate all your patience with the big crowd of kids. That is why you are so good at what you do. Thanks for giving my daughter Sydnie the best birthday ever!

Thought you would like the pictures. Thanks for the Magical Day! --Sydnie's mom, Jennifer


Dixie & Derby,

Thanks so much for coming to Mariah's Birthday Party. She'll probably never forget it. She talks about her party all the time. Both of you were great. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. I've heard from several adults that it was one of the best B-day parties they ever attended! Keep up the good work! See you in the spring! --Mariah's mom,Sheri


Dear Amy:

Thank you so much for the pictures! I loved them. I'm going to get the one of everyone at the club framed. Taylor still talks about the party--he says it's the best birthday party he ever had. Also, I got your flyer. Please let me know if you ever need a recommendation!
Thanks again!

Fondly,--Taylor's mom, Susan
