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.
Amazing Comp! Very dancer oriented, not money
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!!
Sorry about the misplacement of my comments it was not meant for your
company I apologize.
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!
Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We truly appreciate it and
are glad we could be of help to your daughter!
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!
Thanks for your great feedback! We appreciate 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!
So glad you liked our competition! We appreciate your feedback and look
forward to working with you 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.
Thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled that our competition was a
great experience for you!
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 appreciate your kind words. Glad we could be of help. We look forward
to seeing you again soon!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Great critiques from ALL the judges! My daughter was
excited to listen to and read all the comments. She worked on a few things
at our next competition and did AWESOME! Great find to help all dancers
excel!!I would give you 10 Stars!
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
advertised - all dance and no drama without the hassle of travel. I
taken my daughter to many well known competitions the past few
solos/duets/group dances and this competition by far provided
technical critiques she has ever received. The feedback was
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.
Thanks so much for your kind words. We truly appreciate our entrants!
Your feedback definitely helps us to know that we are on the right track!
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.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We truly love our competitors!
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.
Thank you for your great feedback and for highlighting some of the many
benefits of our competition. We are thrilled that you\'ve had a great
experience with us.
Love it! First time participating in an online competition! But this was a
great experience to prepare for the upcoming competition year! We received
specific critique and will utilize this to continue preparing! Thank you
for the Platinum and special award along with an Overall! My parent is very
pleased! We will do this more often!
Thank you for your great review. We are glad that you and your parents are
happy with our judging. We definitely agree that we are a great step in
preparing for the competition season!
Love love love! We got better critiques from the judges here then any other
comp the whole year!! Super super friendly and helpful staff! Very flexible
on videos and everything! Can\'t wait to enter the girls again! Thanks
for being amazing starz!
Thanks! We love our entrants too! We appreciate that you find us friendly
and helpful. :-)
We look forward to working with you again soon!
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!
Thanks for your great review and being so specific. We appreciate your
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!!
So glad you found our feedback to be balanced. Also glad to hear that we
gave more comments than other competitions. That\'s definitely one of
the perks of our competition. Thanks so much for the great review!
Starz is a great outlet for our dancers! We used it for critique before our
live comp. It was awesome! Can\'t say enough great things about them!
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!
Thanks so much for the kind feedback. Glad our evaluations was helpful for
We haven\'t done this yet but I think it is a great idea and I definately
plan on doing this soon!! Just getting the feedback is worth the money
spent and will help my DD with what she needs to work on for her solos!
We can\'t wait to see your entries! We think our feedback can be very
valuable for your daughter!
I think it is a great concept and allows dancers the feedback they may need
Thanks, we think so too! It\'s a great way to see how dancers can grow!
I entered my daughter's solo independently because it was her first year
performing a solo and we wanted some extra feedback. I was pleasantly
surprised when we received the results 24 hrs after entering. The judges
comments were both detailed and encouraging regardless if they were giving
a compliment or stating what my daughter needed to improve on. The judges
enthusiasm was the same or if not greater then any live competition we have
attended. Starz Dance competition truly gives all the benefits of a live
competition with out all the hassle of traveling, not to mention the
expenses that comes with it. This experience left my daughter feeling great
about her performance as well as knowing what she needs to work on. Starz
Dance Competitions is very professional and my daughter and I are both
looking forward to entering her in their competitions again.
Thank you so much for your review of our competition. We are so pleased
that it was beneficial to your daughter. We look forward to seeing her
I think this is a fabulous concept!! I entered two of my daughter's solos,
I received great feedback in the judges comments and score sheets, things
that she did well and things she should work on, just like a competition
you would be in attendance for. I highly recommend it! Results were given
in a timely fashion. I will continue to do this competition for solo and
group numbers; a great all around experience and display of pure
Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback of our competition. We
appreciate our dancers, their families and studios!
Our daughter entered as an independent entry since our studio doesn\'t
compete. She received excellent critiques from all of the judges. There
were numerous comments on things that she could improve upon, as well as
things she did well. We felt the comments were right on par and very
genuine. It was obvious that the judges had much expertise and experience
The online format worked very well for us. We were able to choose whether
or not we wanted to have her awards, video and/or photo posted. We could
also choose to receive awards or have a lower entry fee by not. Overall,
this is an excellent competition and we highly recommend it! We will
definitely be entering again!
Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We are thrilled that you are
happy with our competition. We look forward to seeing your daughter again
in the future.
Finally, a competition where children are expected to dance like children,
and given thorough critiques. I cannot say enough good things about Starz,
and look forward to entering our dance routines every chance we get.
Thank you so much! We appreciate your thoughts and comments! The Starz
