Brandon and his programs are FABULOUS!  He is engaging, entertaining, and can work with many different audiences.  Brandon came to our 4H county lock-in prepared to present to teens, but adjusted on the fly to work with youth ages 5-18 and adults! Everyone was engaged, having fun, and learning.  It was an amazing experience to be a part of!

Brandon’s ‘Step In Step Out’ dance instruction and ‘Let It Move’ workshops were a sensational hit! Brandon led the whole group on a fun, positive, educational, and truly ‘moving’ leadership experience. He set the tone for the balance of the weekend. What Brandon brings is inclusive, engaging, and entertaining, while at the same time substantive, thought-provoking, and real.

Brandon Lee White came to our middle school and did two breakout session with students as part of our wellness day.  He then addressed our entire student body for 60 minutes with a motivational message on courage and showing that anything is possible.  Our students were completely engaged and open to Brandon's message and delivery style.  Staff commented that he has been one of the best, if not the best, motivational speaker we have asked to address our middle school students.

Brandon was great with our group.  Engaging, got them all involved..... they were loving it!  We can't ask for more with teens.  This was his second time for this program.  We had him 2 years ago.....and I'm sure we'll want to have him back in the future.

It has been a long time since I was bombarded with” thank-you” and “that was great” before I even made it back to my room! I also received texts at home. Today one of my students said “thank you I really liked that show.” It was wonderful to have a positive male role model for our students. Your message was simple and to the point!  You brought so much energy! Everyone needed a pick me up and you did just that!

Wow! What an amazing speaker we found in Brandon Lee White. Brandon spoke to the student council members as if he were one of them. He received a standing ovation! Brandon related to the students on levels I have rarely seen speakers connect with in the past 14 years as a student council advisor. He connected with kids throughout the day not just during his program. It was great to hear a young man give advice on making a difference and how everyone can do something. I have gotten several rave reviews from students and advisors alike as well as our administration for his presentation. If you get the chance to book Brandon at your school it will be well worth the experience he will share with your youth.
Dana Gros
South Lafourche High School Student Council Advisor

Brandon did a really good job. He tailored his presentation very nicely tying it in with our Super Hero theme week about the strong values of super heroes and the courage it takes to do the right thing. He kept their attention for the full 45 minutes. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a program about his theme.

Brandon White was absolutely fabulous!  Everyone, the students, the teachers and even the principal LOVED him!  He really made an impression on the children.  They went home telling their families about positive energy and a new perspective on fear.  The school would love to have him back next year!

The students had such a good time with Brandon!  Being a small school of only 51 students (including staff) , Brandon made sure everyone was involved. He's very professional & really "struck a chord" with the kids.  We enjoyed having him here.  I'll be looking at your other entertainers for our school for the 2014-15 school year. P S - Hope to see Brandon sometime on "Dancing with the Stars"  :>)

Brandon Lee was Awesome! The children had a great time and are still talking about the performances weeks after.  We look forward to having many future shows through Academic Entertainment at Warwick Middle School!!

Brandon’s program is great! The Olathe Jr. High physical education staff participated in a fun ’sneak peek’ of his ballroom dance curriculum at a recent district in-service. “Step In Step Out” isn’t just about learning dance steps … it also focuses on manners, dance etiquette and important character building skills. Brandon is very professional and his enthusiasm and energy are contagious! What a great way to get kids moving and having fun! We give Brandon and the “Step In Step Out” program an ‘A+’!”

This is our first time with Academic Entertainment and trying out one of their assemblies. From the first time I called to the end of the performance, everyone I spoke to was so helpful in walking me through the whole process and being patient with all of my questions. Brandon was amazing!!! His simple message, personal stories and dance background all worked so well together! It was perfect timing with our Red Ribbon Week at school. The students and teachers had a great time, heard an important lessons and had so many positive things to say! I can't thank all of you enough for a wonderful experience!
