We love TOP conventions. The dancers always learn so much.
Great opportunity for dancers of all levels to learn and explore!
We absolutely love Talent on Parade\'s competition and Pre Pro workshop,
and the Dance Directive was exactly what we expect from this fabulous
company! Top notch instructors, fabulous choreography and great
facilities. For the price, you canNOT beat this event!
Best dance directive out there!!
The absolute most bang for your buck out there!!! For under $100 you get 9
HOURS of non stop dancing with fantastic choreographers from around the
country with impressive resumes! I absolutely love that they brought tap
back as an optional class. They also have an audition class for the
advanced dancers which is great for those planning on a career in dance.
The only complaint, or suggestion I would make, is that they should specify
that ALL BEGINNER level kids need to have a parent or dance teacher present
IN the room with them. Too many times I have seen little 3-6 year olds in
the back, totally playing, laying on the floor, doing cartwheels in tap
shoes etc. There is just no possible way that the choreographer can address
these kids while trying to teach the ones up front that want to learn. I
counted well over 40 kids in the beginner room at one convention this year
-way too many for a real learning environment as far as teacher to student
ratio especially without a parent or teacher to help supervise these little
cuties and keep them focused. But again, TOP Dance Directives are our
favorite convention for learning (no competition = not paying $250) Super
fun, great choreo, friendly staff, and lots of recognition throughout the
day equals one happy but tired dancer on the drive home!
I loved all the hard work here. The kids seem so dedicated which is
Our kids learn so much and they have loved the teachers every time we have
Such a difference from those big conventions. Great teachers that really
care about the kids.
The best choreographers hands down!
Can\'t say enough good things about TOP. Instructors with tons of energy
who motivated the dancers. Interesting and challenging dances.
We love the master classes by TOP. They offer classes for everyone and
encourage everyone to get involved! Their instructors are always TOP notch
and you leave feeling inspired and ready for more! You can find their info
at www.talentonparade.com , under Master Class Info Tab. Worth your time
