Competition Reviews

The most recent Competition/Convention reviews:

  • Looking at competitions for our studio to attend this year and speaking with other companies, these past few weeks have just solidified how much we enjoy Inferno. They are easy to work with and genuinely care about helping their clients where they can. Their communication is the best, their prices are extremely reasonable, and they truly care about providing a good experience for everyone involved. We just love them and plan to attend their events for years to come!

  • Our studio has attended Hype for multiple years and only have wonderful feedback. Even during harsh covid times, they were able to handle the competition appropriately and efficiently. We always find ourselves in appreciation of the organization and time management at Hype Dance Competition and are excited to keep participating with our studio.

  • My daughter's studio has attended Intrigue for several years now and have received only the best feedback from our dancers. We appreciate the effort Intrigue sets toward its participants, allowing all to grow as humans before dancers. Intrigue has always been one of our studio's favorite conventions, challenging everyone to dance honest, determined, and of course, different. Dancers often return from venues unable to contain their excitement of how much they learned, eager to share their incredible experiences no matter if it was in person or virtual. We were also lucky enough to host an in-house convention for Intrigue, where dancers were able to take classes in a more intimate setting at their home studio. Within this, we find Intrigue faculty and staff are consistently most pleasant and responsible people and we are immensely grateful for their generous help. My daughter, her studio, and I am truly honored to be a part of something as special and beautiful as Intrigue.

  • This is the convention and competition we look forward to most each season. Intrigue is organized, professional and always evolving in the best way. It gives dancers a chance to climb the ranks within their program. The dancers get the opportunity to train hard in convention classes, become TP's (the dancers that get to demonstrate the work in class) and can become assistants (the dancers on stage with the instructors.) They also get the chance to choreograph their own work at their NEOVATE event. They have audition opportunities where they can receive scholarships and other awards to help pay for their future entries. The faculty is always top notch. Kevin and Lorraine are easy to reach, quick to give a thorough reply and always willing to help with any questions or concerns. The competition judging is fair. We have had dancers in 1st place and dancers in last place and we always look forward to the honest feedback. They look for something special in each dancer that spans far beyond the obvious "dancer" body and dance tricks. "Dance Different" is the motto and it inspires our dancers to be bold and outside of the box. During Covid they turned our studio into a Micro-Convention and allowed the students to continue to dance through a really difficult time. I can not say enough about this convention or the wonderful people that work here. You should 100% consider Intrigue for your dancers.

  • The competition itself was good. The event ran smoothly, my dancers enjoyed the opening number routine, and the judging was fair. My biggest complaint with this event was the host hotel at the Doubletree. It was, by far, the worst hotel I have ever stayed. There was mold throughout my room, my ceiling was coming down in chunks, my phones never worked, the wall paper was peeling at every seam. If another nationals is planned for Monroeville I would seriously look into a different host hotel. It made the week pretty unbearable and I would not return.

  • Our studio has been attending Intrigue for several years now and it has quickly become one of our favorite conventions! Not only do we love the faculty, the high level of choreography taught, and the family environment - we also love all of the extra opportunities provided that allows our dancers to grow not only in their dancing ability, but also in their choreographic voice. I love that in addition to competition and convention classes, they provide improv challenges and choreographic opportunities like collaboration, imagination and sidekick. It helps dancers that are interested in pursuing dance after high school with choreographic experiences to help them further develop their own style. The assistant program is also like no other and really helps those dancers learn the ins and outs of this part of the industry and growing so much in the process. Intrigue is a family and one we are super happy to be part of!

  • Uproar Dance Competition is new and fresh and brings so much to the dance community!

  • Nick Curry Graphics was an absolute pleasure to work with. Nick created our Dance Competition logos and Ads. We gave him an idea of what we wanted and he brought it life. His designs were so amazing and creative that we could not decide on just one so we used both. He made any updates needed quickly and always responded to emails and calls. We look forward to working with Nick again. Backstage Competition
