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.
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

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.
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.
