This is always my favorite competition! David and Angela did a fantastic job MC-ing; they were very clear. I have a hearing problem but was able to understand all the awards (that never happens). David even took the time to say a few words to my very nervous daughter before her solo. It made all the difference. Especially since one judge didn't even look up to watch my daughter dance (not the comp's fault). Can't wait for nationals.

There was a lot to like about Applause. Well organized, friendly staff, ran early and awards that don't take forever. They even recognized that a dancer was in too low of a level for their talent. It's nice when a comp follows their own rules. But, speaking of rules, I don't know why they have to be such a secret. They are not listed on the website or the program. Post them for us parents. The overalls seemed pretty accurate. But at least 90% of the adjudications were platinum. I find it hard to believe that most dances fell in that one category. Maybe if I knew the scoring system, it would make sense. I would return but please post those rules.

While I felt like judging was fair...I wasn't impressed with a lot of things at this competition. I couldn't find the scoring rubric online or in the program, but I am super curious what the platinum window is, it must be huge because almost everyone received platinum. I only heard a FEW people get high gold on Saturday. One would think the ones who got high gold likely were horrible, but they weren't...which left me scratching my head. The awards covered way too many categories in one sitting, solos and duets/trios were in with group awards and when there is 3 competing divisions you can only imagine how long it took. There needs to be more awards, in turn making them shorter ceremonies and less confusing. The trophies are super cheap and generic as well.... Wasn't impressed with this competition at all. I feel like they could easily turn it around by paying attention to details, such as improving the trophies (make it look like you actually care about what you're giving the girls/studios...maybe cut out the paper certificates too...) & sort out the awards ceremony mess...organization could be improved as well. I did like the way they gave the point score when giving overall awards, that doesn't happen often.

Applause was okay. It was well run and on time. However, it felt "low energy" and I am not sure if that was the venue or the staff? I felt the scoring was all over the place. Simple dance numbers with multiple mistakes scored higher than complex numbers with few errors, while in other spots it felt fair. I thought way too many people got platinum. The judging wasn't very tiered. It was very congested in the hallways and it was difficult to grab kid-friendly food to refuel them. The choices were limited and the line was very long at all times.

We just attended the Minneapolis Applause competition. It was an incredibly well run regional. The event personnel were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I LOVE that the MC/Music table is backstage! I am standing right there if there are issues...no running around to the front of the house. Also, all of the judges critiques and score sheets were uploaded and available by my MONDAY 4:00 class!!! That was awesome. Some competitions do not get these up until Wednesday. It was really refreshing to have these in time for class.

My daughter has competed at this competition several times. They always are high on my list of favorite completions because of their professionalism in the way it is ran. They also have well rounded judges that know all dance styles.
