What is a "Virtual Visit"?

Many performers can now deliver their programming to you via the internet using Skype® (see below). This is called a "Virtual Visit". Because the performer does not have to travel physically to your school, these virtual visits typically cost much less than a live performance.

How do schools enter reviews?

Schools can enter a review of performers by clicking SUBMIT REVIEW at the top of their More Info pages. After submitting a review, you will be sent a confirmation email. You'll need to click the link in this email to confirm your review. Schools are allowed only one review per performer. More about reviews

Why did I get an email asking me to confirm a review I did not submit?

Performers can submit a review or quote they received from you in the past, but it will not be published online until it has been confirmed and approved by you. So, if you get an email asking you to confirm a review that you did not submit, it means a performer has submitted your quote. If the quote is indeed your words, and if you approve of the quote, then go ahead and click the confirmation link, and the quote will be published on the performer's listing in the REVIEWS section.
