STARZ DANCE COMPETITIONS

May 07 2022

Just competed this weekend with Starz. We are a very small studio. Our girls had fun but our scores seemed much lower then any competition this season. :( All other studios walked away with at least one judges award- we got none. My older girls were discouraged, I was too to be honest. We will probably not return sadly. The staff was so kind, and so were all the other kids we came across. I guess it just wasn’t our day. Just a sad way to end our season.

FANTASTIC!!!!! A \"no drama\" competition experience!! HIGHLY recommend!! Gentle and positive critique, expert judging, and motivating to student choreographers!! Fabulous!! Definitely a \"will do again\" competition after entering twice in one season!! If it would allow me 6 stars I would rate it as such!!

Clearly, you have posted your negative feedback on the wrong competition. We think you may have meant to leave your feedback on a competition with a similar name. Because all of our competitions are done via the internet, you would have no way of knowing that judges were \"looking down\". You also never spoke to any of our staff, as we have NEVER been rude to anyone. I am the owner, and am onsite daily. The only way you would have spoken to one of us is via telephone, as we don\'t have live competitions. All of our judges give EXCELLENT feedback and spend quality time doing so. Please look at all of our other ratings and you will see that our feedback has been, and will continue to be, the most important part of our business. If you still think you have the correct competition (and I\'m sure that you will realize your error), I URGE you to contact me to discuss your experience. In fact, I\'ll even offer up a free entry to your daughter to show you what a VALUABLE competition we are. You can email me at StarzDanceCompetitions@yahoo.com or call 1-888-978-5218. Our website is www.StarzDanceCompetitions.com. We hope that in the future you will research who you are actually leaving feedback for. We look forward to hearing from you. Linda

This was awesome. The constructive criticisms given in a positive way was impressive. My daughter enjoyed hearing the feedback and is applying the corrections to be ready for her live competition season. Great job!

Loved this competition! They gave great constructive criticism in a non-threatening way. The results and comments came back quickly! Would do this again as soon as my daughter can learn a new routine! Love, love it!

Loved this competition!! This is my daughter\'s first year competing and we submitted one of her routines in order to prepare her for competition. The turnaround time was short and the critiques were great! We have worked on the comments that we were given and my daughter is more confident and ready to do her competition! We will definitely be sending in more routines in the future!

Easily the best competition we have ever participated in. Their slogan of No Drama Just Dance was completely right. We received the best feedback ever. The staff was wonderfully pleasant and easy to work with. While it is a bit different competition format, it completely works for our studio. We sent our routines in and within 36 hours we had extremely helpful feedback. We got our feedback, implemented the judges comments and placed at the top of the following competition. This is the perfect \"next step\" after practice in the studio and before going to a competition. I highly recommend it for all dancers, studios or parents.

This is the 1st time we have done this competition and we loved it. The feedback is immediate. When I contacted them they were readily available to answer my questions and were so nice. The feedback was very helpful. We definitely will do this again many times over!

We are proud that our comments helped your daughter do so well at her competition! It\'s wonderful when dancers take critiques and use them as motivation to do even better! Congratulations!

Best competition experience ever! This on-line competition was as advertised - all dance and no drama without the hassle of travel. I have taken my daughter to many well known competitions the past few years for solos/duets/group dances and this competition by far provided the best technical critiques she has ever received. The feedback was prompt, professional, and easy to understand. We received our feedback in less than 24 hours after video submission. Each entry received feedback from 3 different judges at an affordable entry fee that was less than 1/2 the cost of other well known competition venues. Video and fee payment was quick and easy. Staff was courteous, friendly, and prompt. I highly recommend this competition for any dancer out there!! We will be using this competition to get feedback on a regular basis.

This was a really fantastic way to compete before you compete. The judges gave excellent critique. My daughter has been competing for years and I would have loved to have known about this in the past. To get feedback before you actually compete live so you know what you need to work on is a great thing. Alas, this will probably be her last competition since she is 19 but it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone or any dance studio that wanted to compete with out the craziness of actually going to a competition.

Without a doubt, the best discovery ever for an independent dancer or any dancer who wants high quality, formative feedback during the dance season. The judges took my daughter\'s videos very seriously. Their comments were specific and helpful -- and written and spoken in language that was understandable to our daughter. Corrections were handed in a very positive and professional manner and every effort was made to stress positives and provide encouragement for continued growth. The way this competition works, there are so many beneficial options. Feedback can be private or you can opt for more public results. Submitting entries was easy and painless. They are flexible with the formality of the dance and open to viewing polished work as well as works in progress. Clearly, the judges have a background in the dance style they judge, and it seems the judges are relaxed and focused during their viewing and critiques (unlike real time competitions where the judges are clearly exhausted at times). They even offer an option to request the same judges to review and critique a routine over time. That option is very helpful in preparing routines throughout the season without having to perform in a more formal or public forum until the dancer is ready. Rates are reasonable, and you can opt in or out of \"awards.\" For $30, we were able to get 3 incredible critiques and a certificate with the adjudication level. No travel expense, no hoopla, no nonsense -- just great feedback that\'s both meaningful and personalized. Love it!! As an independent soloist, this competition will be a Godsend for us this year as we work toward cleaning and polishing our daughter\'s solo more on our own than ever.

This is such an awesome competition! The people are wonderful and so nice! They keep you informed every step of the way. We submitted a video and received a rating in 2 days - over a weekend! The feedback was great - positives and critiques! My daughter can\'t wait to submit another one to see if she can improve! While some competition is healthy, this takes the anxiety out of the competition and let\'s the kids do what they love - dance! I recommend to any dancer that is looking to find ways to improve!

I am so pleased with our experience with Starz Dance Competitions! This was the first year my 8 year old daughter did a solo, so along with live competitions, this was another way to get judges feedback. The feedback we received from these judges was awesome! There were more notes on her sheets than when she did live competitions. The notes were a balance of positive feedback and things she needed to improve on. The communication with Starz was awesome! My daughter has many more years of dancing and I will continue to enter her with this competition!!

Thanks for the great review. That\'s how many of our competitors use our competition (before going to a live one). We also have many that use us afterwards too. They can compare the judges comments to the live one and also show their improvement to our judges. Thanks again!

I recommend this for anyone looking for extra help with their solo. Their feedback was wonderful. Not only was the feedback helpful, it was clear and understandable! We will be doing this again!
