It was nothing more than ok, but not bad. The last time I went there I didn't like how they only did a top 5 and not a top 10. Idk if it is still like that.

It wasn't bad or great. They need to work on making it more "personal".

We went here for the first year and we will be going back. The backstage folks are extremely nice and helpful. They interacted beautifully with the dancers and made it more fun for them. Well run-- good venue both for dancers and dance parents. Overall fair judging, attracted quality competition. Our studio has decided to attend their national based on the professionalism of this competition.

Good competition overall. The staff are very nice and my last time competing at Applause, they ran 45 minutes ahead of schedule! The judges score very high, which is nice when it comes to awards. The past few years it has been held in bad locations like crappy high schools. But the actual competition in general is worth while.

This USED to be one of the best competitions in the circuit. They sold out to KAR when the owner died. If you like KAR, which is all about the $$, then you may like this one.

It's a fun competition that myself and my students enjoyed going to. As time went on, they tried really hard to be like other competitions and it just kind of took the fun out of it.

Haven't been in years. The last couple of times we went I felt there was blatant favoritism to one studio. It wasn't just against us- I was feeling OTHER studios were better and could never come out on top when they should have. It's hard to call favoritism when it's you vs. them, but observing other studios and feeling bad for them just made it very clear. I don't think we will go back.

Solid comp that attracts decent talent in our area. Nationals was small compared to others we have been to.

one of my studios favorite competitions! We attend applause usually every other year (to change things up a bit) but we've competed at applause 5 times since I've been on the team. The staff is so kind and friendly and helpful. The venues are always very nice, clean, etc. Other studios are friendly, fun award ceremonies, great judging, fair scoring. 10/10 would recommend :)

Enjoyable competition with high energy. Awards are long with the addition of dance-downs, etc, but otherwise, good judging and a wide variety of awards.

This past spring was our first ever Applause competition. The staff was kind, however, the schedule was jumbled and out of order. They "lost" our best dancer's score and video. The comments were inconsistent on the videos and the contest seemed to reward faces and costumes over quality and technique. We will not be going back.

We very much enjoyed our first experience with this competition this year both at the "local" regional and again at nationals this summer. Both were run very nicely and remained either on or just ahead of time. Staff was friendly and the most important is the kids enjoyed it!

Very friendly staff. Competition ran ahead. Awards were normal length although I thought the actual presented award could have been nicer. (In some cases it was just a certificate). I'm not one to think everyone should get a trophy but if you ARE going to hand something out it shouldn't be a sheet of paper. Definitely would attend again.

We attended last year & there were long waits between numbers (costume changes) but they didn't move ahead when other dancers were ready. Announcer kept asking if anyone was ready to dance to come back stage - seemed weird to me. Don't like that the rules & general information as well as the schedule isn't posted online.

Awards was a bit difficult to follow, but nice comp. I like that they use their facebook page to let people know when they are ahead of schedule.

The past few years, I've found the judging to be very inconsistent. Not unfair, but inconsistent, if that makes sense. It runs smoothly, though, and runs on time or ahead.

This comp has really grown in our area in the past couple of years. My only complaint is that they tend to go a long time between awards presentations, which makes for a super long day for younger dancers. That said, their awards move fast and are my favorite, no fluff.
