We\'ve been to this competition for a couple of years and it\'s always
great. This year they had some issues with the facility but heard they
changing things up for next year. We are excited to go back. They always
give great awards, take care of the dancers, and even treat the teachers to
a special room with food all weekend. It\'s one of our favorites!
This is a fun competition. Very friendly atmosophere. Love the fact that
they give the picture CD\'s and other goodies. That set them apart. I
like the the judging, and the fact that they have jugdes the seem to know
all styles of dance. My one complaint is that it takes FOREVER for them to
show the results for this year. I believe this dance competition company
also runs Majestic Dance competition, and it\'s the same thing. They only
have results posted thur 2014. If you like to print out the results and put
them in a scrapbook or a memory box, be prepared to wait a LONG LONG time.
Horrible venue-larger stage area had cheap plastic folding chairs and
bleachers and both were uncomfortable for everyone. Exiting either stage
area after a session involved major traffic jams. Dressing rooms were
overcrowded. Noise level in the stage areas was too loud sometimes drowning
out the dancers. Too much \"pushing\" of the comp charity and sponsors.
Waiting 45+ minutes for awards in a hot, crowded area-unacceptable.
Expecting dancers to sit and wait for awards without diversion such as
music- unacceptable. Scheduling dancers during school hours and yet giving
out awards for studios with high GPAs is contradictory to say the least.
School should be every dancer\'s number 1 priority. The philosophy behind
the competition is great--they just need to get into the 21st century and
do some modernization such as computerized scoring and maybe an app for the
event since their program is hard to follow.
The dressing room situation is horrible! Awards ceremony takes way too
We were actually at Majestic this year. I appreciated that we got the
schedule earlier this year than in year\'s past, and that a skeleton
schedule was up on the website earlier than a week before the competition.
In general this is one of our favorite competitions. Always runs on time
and the presents (last 2 years have been free picture CDs of each routine,
and the pictures have been great) are much appreciated. My only complaint
this year was that the room the second stage was in was very small this
year and they had large groups performing on this stage. It was beyond
crowded in there, in that you couldn\'t even find a spot to watch even
standing in the back and you it was such a bottleneck with people trying to
get in and out one door that sometimes you couldn\'t even push your way
into the room before the next dance had started. Next year they need to
find a way to have a bigger second stage or only put solos, duos, and trios
in here. Otherwise, it\'s a great competition. We have been taking our
two year old with us and (in the main room) there is so much space she can
be off to the side running while we can still see what is going on on
stage. It\'s one of the more \"toddler\" friendly sites we have ever
What a wonderful competition! Have nothing bad to say. They are so generous
with their goodies they give out to the kids and our dancers enjoy this
competition the most. We love going every year & love that it\'s
different from other competitions.
In general this was a good, was well run competition. Ran

extras breaks just so we would \"stay on time\".) and

even then it wasn\'t even a final schedule.

I love this competition! They do a great job of going above and beyond for
the dancers. I love the banners that they give out for Judges Choice
awards and category winners! I love the pins that they give dancers (I
have too many trophies already!). They have a great stage and a very fun
atmosphere! Every dancer gets a nice gift when checking in! The only
complaint I have is that I would like to view and order pictures after the
event. With two dancers in several dancers I never have time to view the
pictures at the competition!
