Lots of dead time between routines. Too many intermissions. They have always favored larger studios, but this year it was very obvious. The judging was all over the place, again favoring larger studios. I HATE the new format ... They now do solos, duets and trios throughtout the weekend mixed in with small and large groups. LONG. HARD. BORING! WEEKEND!!! Thank goodness I love my dance family and we all get along.

I enjoyed this competition and would not attend again. It may not be my favorite but I do enjoy the organization of it. The one thing I do not like is the awards ceremony. During awards they called up the top five dancers in no particular order and then announced who won what place from there. When they get down to the top two left they make an effort to go out of their way and present them as the top two dancers. It is a little defeating standing up there recognized as one of the top dancers but then receiving second. It is more natural to have all dancers sit and wait to be called.

Overall, a fairly normal dance competition. Seems to favor larger studios. The staging and such is well done and professional. Photos and videos are of good quality. My biggest concern with this competition is transparency. It can be difficult to find their rules and regulations.

Attended their regional event. Ran on time. Some comps we went to last year have been between 1-2 hours ahead which can get frustrating. Liked the judges comments and venue.

Have gone to the regionals for 3 years now and this was our first time going to nationals. Judging is consistent and fair. Loved the classes offered at nationals (one teacher called out dancers for inappropriate moves). Very positive experience and I hope we get to return in the future.

This is a very organized competition that runs smoothly & on time. A request for one of our numbers to go earlier in the day (due to a religious obligation for one of our dancers) was honored & handled professionally. I do feel that they don't give out as many overall awards as other competitions of the same caliber do & I would like to see them place more dancers in the overalls, but otherwise, it was a good competition.

As a dancer I attended this competition, I loved it. As a teacher last year attended l raved about how professional they were, ran on time, judged fairly, loved the idea of donating trophies to a great benefit. This year was my first year owning a studio, we attended the competition that I raved about. My studio got robbed it was a sin. How do girls that were platinum winners all season long get golds? When I emailed the competition, they were just as rude. I will never go back to applause. I also didn't like how they favored certain studios.

We have always had a great experience with Applause, it's been one of my entire studio's favorites. That is, however, until this year's Nationals. It was very, very obvious that there was some favoritism going on. In addition to that, I personally believe they should regulate how many dances they put into one category, because I don't think it's very fair if one studio gets all top 3 spots, which occurred multiple times at nationals. I was very disappointed at judging, and thought many dances that were very good did not score as well as they should have. Favoritism is pretty obvious if the same 2 or 3 studios are taking top spots in all dance categories. Overall very disappointed at our nationals experience. Will probably return to the regional, don't think we'll be going back to nationals.

This year was our first experience with Applause and we really enjoyed it. Felt it was judged fairly and loved the venue it was held at. Will hopefully return next season.

As a parent we went before KAR bought and absolutely hated the experience--sold out comp, poorly organized with 8 and unders competing from 8 in the morning until 11 at night and an awards session at midnight!! However, we went to one in a new venue with KAR as new management and it was totally new experience. Much more organized with no late sessions and better thinking when scheduling. So I give them a thumbs up with new management.

Would have really liked a top 10 instead of only top 5

We have been to this one many years and this year their judging was the hardest I've seen. They actually ran ahead of time even though they were sold out. Not the comps fault, but the ac could have worked better in the theater. I do wish even though it's the end of their season, they would still have a supply of t-shirts etc on had to sell.
