BRAVO! NATIONAL DANCE & TALENT COMPETITION

Jul 27 2021

I am VERY disappointed with the lack of care from bravo. I, along with many other people from the studio my kids go to, have family that have been very high-risk for covid-19. (before the vaccine came out) The lack of care from bravo was so disheartening to me. I understand allowing the children to not wear masks on stage when dancing and when they're eating, but there were parents and dance teachers from other studios wearing t-shirts tied round their mouths', wearing a bandana on their chin, and for the few who did bring some variation of an actual mask, they either flat out didn't wear it to cover anything or hung it on their ear the entire weekend. I have loved bravo for years, and wrote a good review a while back because I genuinely loved the competition, but I soon found out during the weekend that adults were talking and laughing about how they were able to, and I quote, 'sneak in while having the virus during the scam-demic'. Everyone at that event back in early April was exposed to covid. We all quarantined for 2 weeks after the competition, but it is still far too dangerous. Also, during awards they had everyone on stage at once, not required to wear masks, some people- both kids AND adults slingshotting their masks from their fingers, and not social distancing. Our studio owner had contacted Bravo and forward us all the email saying how their priority is to keep everyone safe during these times, though we were all exposed to the pandemic because the staff did not enforce the masks among the adults, not to mention most of the staff were either wearing no mask, not wearing it over their nose and mouth, or even a mesh/fishnet face 'covering' if I can even call it that.

Horrible experience! The venue was way too small! The venue & schedule were changed multiple times prior to the competition. The dressing rooms were inappropriately small. Staff members were not wearing masks despite the the states mask mandate. A sticker “2021” covered up old 2020 on award plaques! All around a very disappointing experience!

This is ridiculous. Parents jammed into a tiny space with no COVID regulations in place. Wristbands distributed but nobody at the door, not even a sign to discourage people from entering. Standing room only for hours- only about 200 chairs. "Dressing area" was just a large open area, impossible to social distance. The dance floor was a soft mat over concrete- tap and pointe were impossible.

We had a great time at Bravo. The staff is always friendly and the announcer is energetic and keeps everyone energized. We have attended Bravo for several years and always enjoy it. My daughter has a great time. The auditorium is a great place to showcase all of the dancers.

BravO! is by far our favorite dance competition! The staff members along with the directors are so down-to-earth people and take the time during competitions to stop and carry on conversations with folks. Our entire team including parent & grandparents enjoy the competition atmosphere and staff. They make the competition fun and make sure each dancer feels special no matter their experience level or studio size! There may be early and late hours for competitions, but that is what happens when you are THE BEST IN THE MIDWEST!

Bravo is by far the BEST competition in the industry! They provide a family-friendly atmosphere along with a diamond-rated production! Every dancer feels they are in a professional production with lights, sound, video, and announcer make each and every dancer feel special! Our families will ALWAYS attend Bravo Regionals and Nationals! Thank you for being the BEST and making the competition industry a rewarding experience!

I have been bringing students to BravO! since 2007. I am continually impressed with the relationships the Owner/Staff build with ALL the teachers and students. The atmosphere is relaxed, stress free and fun! The judging is fair and filled with positive feedback, and fun special awards are given out that are not "high score" related. I feel like BravO! In whole understands that although it is competition, dance is also an art form that deserves equal amounts of attention! My students always leave inspired and motivated!

We attended our first Bravo competition and had a wonderful experience! We loved the organized backstage, the lighting added an extra fun element and made it feel more like a performance, the staff was friendly and helpful. Excited Bravo has come to our city!!!

This comp REALLY lacks credibility and I think they manipulate the scoring. They favor big studios and it is VERY obvious and then don't even send you judges feedback. DO NOT ATTEND..stay away.

Our studio has been attending Bravo on and off for several years. The judging is always pretty consistent, but this year the judges were outstanding! In my opinion, well-rounded critiques are the most important aspect of a dance competition (especially when judging tap). Well done, we will go back!

Ran on time for the most part which was great. The announcer was great! The awards ceremony were very dry and monotone. The venue was horrible... auditorium was way too small, standing room only at times and no food or drinks available for purchase. Judging seemed fair in my view (never being in those shoes!)

The comp is a mixed bag; while the judging had clear bias towards a large studio whom had been attending for several years, the director was nice enough to at least hear to my complaints. It runs on time - but the scheduling itself was pretty awful considering there weren't so many numbers. Also, how about some diversity on the judging panel? Three blonde middle-aged white women from the south isn't exactly diverse in 2019..how about a male? A person of color? Etc. We're in NY .. hire some REAL dancers from NYC that are current.. The worst part is the fact that we did not receive over half our judging feedback -- which they claim is due to a glitch. Interestingly enough, most of the feedback that was "lost" pertains to numbers that scored lower than what I had expected. When contacted about this "glitch" they offered 15% off for the following year...making the assumption that i even planned to attend again next year. I suggest passing on this competition as there are so many out there -- and there ARE fair ones.

Totally fine, middle of the road competition. Good place to get dances on stage for the first time in a season. Not a fan of last minute time changes.

We always look forward to attending BravO! each year! They run on time or ahead of schedule if they can. Their staff at their home office and on tours are always nice and around if you have any questions. They make awards a big deal and their plaques are beautiful. Thank you for being a well run dance competition!

Awful judges! They give first place to kids who are not talented not professionals. The kids who are professional and work hard every day don’t even get placed! I come from a studio that is professional. We work so hard every day! We come there awesome hairstyles, costumes , and make up and they don’t even place us! This competition is not for everyone, the judges only pick favorite studios! A five year old group beated a 9 year old group and a 7 year old group! Is that natural! Judges need to improve, staffs need to be nicer. Thank you!
