Overall a really fun competition with lots of special awards. They give a very heavy stone plaque for your placement award. There was a table set up in the dressing room with all kinds of items a dancer might need. The only reason it was a 4 instead of a 5 was because there were no professional pictures taken while kids were onstage
I've been impressed with their ballet and jazz shoes for kids. I was not familiar with this brand, and my daughter had issues finding the right fit for her narrow feet and ankles. A fitter recommended So' Danca, and she immediately liked them. If you have narrow feet, I definitely recommend this brand.
I've been ordering from DDS for over 20 years, first for me, and now for my kids! Simply the widest selection of all things dance. Through DDS I have discovered brands and supplies that have never been sold in my local area. They continue to add new brand all the time.
