Just got home from the convention and have to say the convention was a NIGHTMARE! The checkin took 4ever! Line was all the way down the hotel and took us 1hr to get through registration. Then when we got to registration they ran out of the CONVNETION BOOK/schedule.
The schedule is hard to read: not all parents can read size 4 font printed on a dark purple and dark blue background! COME ON! I had to take a picture with my phone and blow it up.
Part of the convention price includes lunch and Sunday's lunch did not include any protein!
The convention itself - the only one we have been too where it’s encouraged that you push your way to the front to be seen. Only one teacher walked around the room to see all the dancers. We all know those dancers that push their way to the front, just to be seen. Well at Celebrity, if your dancer actually stays at the back so they have room to move they will in no way be seen or have a chance at getting called out! Witnessed it first hand. Saw some amazing dancers in the back of the room not one was called out. The same dancers, over and over in the front only were called out!
Unless your dancer is pushy and doesn’t care about dance space, please avoid this convention! I hope our studio does not go back!
We are so sorry to hear about your experience! We have not heard these sentiments from anyone else, but we definitely appreciate your feedback!
Regarding Celebrity Check-in: We offer multiple time windows, throughout the weekend, for dancers to check-in. Unfortunately, our computer system did go down one time that weekend. With many dancers checking in at once, the technical difficulty set us back. We worked diligently to get it back up and running, and dancers through the line as quickly as we were able, while trying to keep everyone's spirits up!
Regarding the Celebrity Souvenir Program: Celebrity Convention Programs are complimentary. All information in the Celebrity Program is emailed out in the Welcome Packet, for anyone with a Celebrity Online Account. Alternatively, all program information, including faculty bios, the schedule, and more can be found online. Our half page programs help cut down on the amount of paper used to produce complimentary programs, for hundreds of dancers, at every Celebrity Convention. If you view the program online, not only do you help Celebrity save on paper, but you can magnify the program to a size suitable for you. While some of our stock was misplaced by hotel staff for about 15 minutes, they were recovered and we had them available the rest of the weekend. We also had Celebrity Crew Members walk around the venue, and pass out programs to any dancer who looked like they didn’t get one during that time. We are sorry that you were inconvenienced by both of those hiccups.
Regarding Celebrity Lunches: Lunches are included in the dancer’s convention pass. Even with lunches included, Celebrity Dance is often comparable or lower in cost to other dance conventions. While we aim to satisfy everyone, we are unable to satisfy all preferences and dietary restrictions. After meeting with a child nutritionist, and after receiving many requests for vegetarian options, we made the decision to provide a lunch with meat one day, and without meat on another. The menu at Celebrity Conventions varies slightly from event to event, based on the hotel’s options. A typical menu consists of a child-friendly entrée, a fruit or vegetable side dish, a dessert, and basic beverages. On our website, we encourage dancers to bring snacks and other food options if they have dietary restrictions or special requests.
Regarding our Celebrity Faculty: Due to the current pandemic, it has been recommended that our faculty members practice social distancing. For some teachers, their comfortability may be staying a bit more distanced than others. At Celebrity, we try to honor everyone’s individual choices. While this practice is not common under normal circumstances, or what we would prefer to do, it is a measure that helps keep our faculty healthy for future events. Even with those recommendations, we still have plenty of Celebrity Paparazzi footage of our faculty members engaging with the students in various manners. From walking through the rooms, to giving direct feedback, to calling out dancers for examples. In the past, our faculty has encouraged dancers to move about the room, change places, come to the front if they’ve been in the back, etc. All of our teachers are vetted, selected for their character (of course, in addition to their teaching ability), and we can assure you, they all have the dancer’s best interests at heart. If you have any specific comments, on any of our faculty members, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can address your concerns appropriately.
Our goal at Celebrity Dance is to help make every dancer feel like the Celebrity they are! We hope your dancer found some enjoyment in our incredible lineup of teachers, the free Celebrity Souvenir t-shirt they received, the complimentary photos & videos for all solos, the Celebrity Show, the included lunched, the Celebrity energy and spirit, and all of the other special touches that help set Celebrity apart from the rest! We hope you’ll give us another shot in the future, and we wish you and your dancer the best of luck in your future dance endeavors!
This was my first convention as a parent, and my daughter's first convention as a dancer (Minneapolis). She was in the Junior's room and we have nothing but good things to say about the weekend!
The routines that the teachers taught were perfect for the age group and skill level, the teachers themselves were amazing, staff was great, we loved the setup of the venue, and as a cherry on top - my daughter won a partial scholarship for next year's convention! Thank you Celebrity for an amazing weekend and we can't wait to come back next year!
We're so glad your first convention experience was a great one! We look forward to having you back at Celebrity for many years to come!
Very well run and efficient competition. There is no reason to be concerned about COVID, because Celebrity has very large and clean dressing rooms. The stage is cleaned after so much time is passed - even if it is during your studio's dance block. Also, the check in system is organized! Truly, the entire competition is well organized - videos are posted when they say they will be posted and so are the awards ceremonies. Celebrity is very professional... so sure you will not be disappointed! :)
Thank you for your review! We are so glad to have met your expectations and look forward to seeing you again soon!
This was our first time attending a Celebrity Dance Competition and it did not disappoint!! Our dancers, parents and teachers had a blast. They were so well organized and efficient! The block scheduling, due to the social distancing requirements, was a dream. We cannot wait to attend another Celebrity event!
Thank you for choosing Celebrity! We hope your time with us is the first of many!
Celebrity always does it right; even with new rules and regulations, they went above and beyond to make the dancers and faculty feel comfortable and special during their event. I appreciate that they genuinely take the time to have conversations with the teacher and dancers, and they never skimp out on handing tangible awards for our performers. I know that's not the main goal of a competition, but it's nice for dancers to walk away with something after such a challenging year. Thank you, Celebrity, for being a very well-run competition with fantastic leadership, staff, and judges. We appreciate you so very much!
Thank you for being a Celebrity! We look forward to seeing you and your talented dancers again soon!
My daughter danced in the San Antonio competition this past weekend with Juleigh Holley’s School of Dance. This was our first time at a Celebrity Competition and it was a great experience! We loved how the staff greeted us and showed us where to go, professionalism of the competition, and having access to critiques and photos so soon after the event. Thank you for all your hard work that allows our kids to continue doing what they love in these weird times.
We're thrilled your dancer had a great first experience with us! We look forward to seeing you both at another Celebrity Event soon!
What an amazing experience!!! The staff was wonderful and upbeat and made the girls feel so special to be there doing what they love! It was a fabulous event and we are blessed to have been a part of it. Thank you Celebrity!
Thank you for joining us! We can't wait to see you all again!
My husband and I were so impressed with how organized and thoughtful the Celebrity staff, faculty, and crew were with handling a convention during this pandemic.
They put a lot of work and effort into making the weekend safe and fun! Our 3 kids had a blast and felt a bit more “normal” again because they got to do what they love...Dance! Well done Celebrity Dance!!!
We are so happy to bring some normalcy back! Thank you for being a Celebrity!
Celebrity is such a humbling, invested, exciting, and welcoming competition. At each event, they are very on top of everything in order to make sure that everyone has a great and organized experience. At all of the conventions and competitions that Celebrity hosts, they teach you not only about dance and furthering a dancer’s artistry, but also growing yourself as a person! The venues and run of things always go so smoothly and their communication is incredible. Such a beautiful environment that they give to everyone who attends.
Thank you for your kind review! We look forward to seeing you at a Celebrity Event again soon!
Every Celebrity event is so fun and I always feel so welcomed! While at Celebrity Conventions I learn so much to help further my knowledge of dance, but also I learn a lot to help further my growth as a human. The weekends I spend at Celebrity’s events are always super fun filled and knowledgeable. The whole Celebrity staff will make you feel welcomed and like a celebrity!
Once a Celebrity, always a Celebrity! We are happy to be apart of your dance journey!
At every Celebrity event I have felt so welcomed. I have learned so much from the amazing faculty and truly felt like a Celebrity the whole weekend. Overall, I really love Celebrity and how special they make every dancer feel!!
Thank you for your review! We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Celebrity is one of the most welcoming competitions and conventions i've ever been too. The faculty is amazing and the environment is unexplainable! I love spending my weekends with everyone from Celebrity!
Thank you for choosing to spend your weekend with us! We can't wait to see you at another Celebrity Event in the future!
I can truly say that I have only had the best quality experiences at Celebrity events. At convention, the energy is so inspiring and every dancer leaves stronger than before. At competition, all studios are supportive, the event always runs on time, and the judging panel is top tier. Celebrity truly is a family and no matter what event you go to, you are treated like a Celebrity!!
Thank you for being apart of the Celebrity Family! We appreciate your kind review!
I have loved all celebrity events that I have attended! Every event you go to you have an amazing faculty, helpful staff dance stage, and amazing assistants at conventions! Celebrity is the first convention to make me feel amazing while dancing! Celebrity Dance really does make you feel like a celebrity!
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time at Celebrity and we look forward to seeing you at another Celebrity Event soon!
Celebrity is a true family when you talk about the faculty. They truly care for the dancers and want the best for them. They do not just teach dance, they teach real lessons and give great advice about so many subjects. Once you go Celebrity you never go back.
Thank you for choosing Celebrity time and time again! Our Celebrity Dancers make it all worth it!
My studio recently attended our rescheduled regional event due to COVID-19.
The Celebrity Team ran an event that would pass a white glove test in the middle of a pandemic and I applaud all involved. The preparedness, attention to detail and exemplary customer service of the Celebrity experience can obviously withstand the most unexpected of challenges.
I personally feel that this company has set a new standard for what could be the foreseeable future of regional dance competitions. Celebrity has set the bar very high.
Drew's leadership has built a remarkable team made up of wildly talented, genuine humans that all contribute to creating the Celebrity experience.
We greatly appreciate your review, and we cannot wait to see you and your talented dancers at another Celebrity Event soon!
So far this competition out of all of them that I have been to has the nicest venue and such a faulty!!
Thank you for your review! We're glad you enjoyed the Celebrity Experience!
I can't say enough about how AWESOME Celebrity is and how much it means to us. When we attended a Celebrity convention for the first time, my daughter was 14 and had been dancing for 10 years and was at the time in such a low place feeling like all her hard work was going nowhere...she wasn't meeting any of her goals and honestly we were discussing throwing in the towel on dance. Something magical happened at this celebrity convention...when the faculty spoke to the dancers from their hearts, it REALLY hit her and by the last day...she was a whole new dancer and has been on fire and meeting her goals ever since!!! This faculty genuinly CARES about these dancers!!! Love, love, love Celebrity!!!
We are so grateful to have made such an impact on your dancer! We look forward to seeing you both again soon!
I have been going to Celebrity since I was about 12, and it gets better every year. This past season, especially, was one of the best experiences I've had as a dancer. The energy is always so positive, and the staff and crew really DO make you feel like a Celebrity. This competition will forever and always be my favorite.
Thank you for joining us year after year. We hope to see you at another Celebrity Event soon!
Celebrity always has a family feel to it. The staff and everyone associated with celebrity are always amazing and welcoming. They do a great job of making everyone truly feel special!
You are special! Thank you for reviewing Celebrity Dance!
I love how unique Celebrity is as well as how much fun it is to attend. The staff is always kind and encouraging, they’re always on time, and the dance down is an extremely fun experience. I appreciate how much they pay attention to detail for our benefit.
We appreciate you! Thank you for being a Celebrity!
I look forward to Celebrity Dance Conventions/Competitions every year! The entire staff is so welcoming and truly makes every single dancer feel like a celebrity. The whole environment is completely nurturing, and you can’t help but feel inspired by the positive energy and encouragement. I learn new things every single year, and I always walk out of the weekend feeling grateful, appreciated, and inspired!
Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed the Celebrity Experience and we look forward to seeing you soon!
We look forward to Celebrity competition and convention each year. Staff is always friendly, courteous and professional. The competitions and conventions are very well organized. The attention to detail and having the dancers’ best interest in mind separates Celebrity apart from other dance competitions/conventions. The staff truly makes everyone feel like a celebrity and customer service is second to none.
Thank you for taking the time to review Celebrity Dance! We hope to see you again soon!
Celebrity Dance Competitions are always a favorite. The vibe is always fun and exciting with super friendly staff. I'm always impressed with how smooth each event runs, The party atmosphere and personalities of each staff member set Celebrity apart from the rest. I look forward to every year!!
We look forward to seeing you again next season! Thank you for your review!
We just attend Celebrity Dance Competition this past weekend. The name is perfect...the moment you entered the building the staff greeted us and made us feel like a Celebrity. We loved having a competition in a beautiful venue - the Mesa Art Center. To be able to compete on a large theater stage was wonderful. Our dancers loved receiving a free cute Celebrity shirt. The competition ran on time, the staff was kind and professional, great communication... the entire weekend was wonderful! We made great memories to last a lifetime. Our studio will be attending Celebrity Convention in the fall and Nationals at Sea 2020. Thank you Celebrity!
Thank you for your kind words! We will see you at Convention and onboard Nationals at Sea!
This is my favorite comp of the year. My background is in marketing and I feel like Celebtrity has this down! The dancers love the shirts and water bottles as a gesture of customer service. The parents love the pictures and videos as a gesture of customer service. And the studios love the online accounts and personalized schedules as gestures of customer services. But as my dancer wears her shirt throughout the year and I see all of our families sharing pictures and videos online (only from this comp because they are included) my marketing brain perks up. The screens behind the dancers, the two camera shots of video showing professionalism, the scripted announcements and C-E-L-E-B-R-I-T-Y chant before awards are all building a culture of excellence. GREAT work and we can't wait to come back next year!
Thank you for noticing the details! We look forward to serving you again in the future!
Celebrity is the most organized and fun competition and convention! The staff makes it so easy for dancers, parents, and teachers. They do such a great job a making it a fun weekend for everyone involved!
It is definitely the best competition/convention around!
We appreciate your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
I know going into every Celebrity Dance Competitions and/or conventions I don't have to worry about being welcomed or doubt that I will have an amazing experience. The competition is always so organized and on top of stying on time. The crew is always so respectful and a huge help! The family welcome vibe all around makes me love Celebrity and I would recommend it to any dancer.
Thank you for your recommendation! See you at another Celebrity Event soon!
Celebrity Dance Competitions have always been a favorite and now the conventions! The staff, and the Teacher are extremely friendly and always make sure the kids as well as the parents feel like Celebrities! Every year they step up their game and impress me every time!!! love them all!!
Thank you for your kind review, Alyssa! We look forward to dancing with you again soon!
Amazing competition and conventions. The staff is friendly, inspiring, and completely so well organized that it makes for a seamless awesome experience. I highly recommend this to every dancer.
We appreciate your recommendation! Have a fabulous dance season!
Really excited for this competition. My girls will be pereforming for the firest time this coming season
We hope you enjoyed your time at Celebrity and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!
I absolutely LOVE this competition! The dressing rooms were a little far away from three competition, but there was always a golf cart or small bus to carry out girls to and from. Best thing about this competition, they provide a live stream for family and friends to watch from home and later, all video coverage is FREE! Awesome!!
We appreciate your feedback and we will continue to do our best to make the dressing room situation as convenient as possible!
We have always loved Celebrity!!! Their staff is personable and so friendly and helpful! Celebrity has been a part of our dance life for a longtime. From the convention to the regionals to Nationals at Sea, I love everything about them. I feel like they are a part of our family we have got to know them over the years. The competition comes very close to us, so that is nice and it's a well run and fun competition. The judging is fair and fun for the kids. Drew and his staff go out of their way to make sure everyone is having a good time and feel good about themselves. We haven't had the chance to see them this past year, but hope to get back this year. The dance down is also something my daughter has loves participating in. It really gives the kids to get on stage and have fun!! We also love Duke, the Celebrity mascot!!
Once a Celebrity, always a Celebrity! Thank you for being apart of the family!
So excited for this competition. We have never performed here but looks very cool
We hoped you enjoyed the Celebrity Experience and we look forward to serving you again soon!
I absolutely love Celebrity! The staff are an incredible group of professionals that truly have a passion for dance and deeply care about each individual dancer. From the dance downs, complimentary lunches at conventions, fast and energetic award ceremonies and of course their Nationals at Sea; Celebrity Competitions and Conventions is unlike any other! This competition is outstanding and is welcoming to every type of dancer, no matter what, everyone feels like a celebrity!
Thank you for your review! We hope to see you at a Celebrity Event again soon!
Celebrity Dance Competition is such an inviting and inspiring environment. I really love all the staff and the feedback we get on our pieces. Love love love Celebrity!
We love you too! Thanks for being a Celebrity!
I love Celebrity Dance! They always make me feel so welcome and take the stress out of competitions! See you soon!
Thank you for your kind words! You are always welcome at Celebrity!
We absolutely love Celebrity! The staff is so nice, and Drew is the best!!! Always such a welcoming and friendly environment. The event ran smoothly and on time. Love the awards ceremony. Lots of fun for the dancers. This is one of the toughest competitions with no levels, they only do a top 3 overall, and there has always been at least 50-80 competitors in my daughter's age bracket. I do like how they break it down by style too, so you at least know where you placed there. Since our hours fall under the middle level for any other comp, some of our dancers love to test themselves by participating in this event. The judging seems fair, for the most part, and they get valuable feedback. WHile I am glad to see that they don't just hand out platinums, this is the hardest competition to earn a platinum. My daughter has competed in 10 competitions this year to date and has received the highest medal at everyone EXCEPT Celebrity. LOL. She get's a bit closer each year, and wants to keep trying. All in all, this is definitely a favorite of ours!! Can't wait till the convention in the fall and the next competition next year. Maybe she will finally earn that platinum :-)!
We love that your dancer has set a goal for herself! We will be there to cheer her on when she achieves it! Thank you for being a Celebrity!
We absolutely love Celebrity. We have been to several Celebrity competitions, conventions (1st time in San Antonio!!) and to Celebrity's Nationals at Sea. The events are well ran. The staff is always willing to answer any question you may have and help if they can. At convention the dancers all had room to dance and not feel like they were right on top of each other. The convention teachers were fantastic, they challenging but encouraging . Some of my daughter's favorite convention teachers are Celebrity teachers. We are excited to start our competition season in January with Celebrity San Antonio.
Everyone at Celebrity would like to thank you for selecting us for your competition and convention events! We hope to see you again soon!
We attended the San Antonio Convention this time and it was Awesome!!! The Staff is always friendly and super helpful. It was my daughter's first year in the Teen room and the instructors made her feel super comfortable. our next even is San Antonio January competition and we can't wait!!
We attended the Celebrity Convention in San Antonio this past weekend. Unfortunately, we were able to attend only one day instead of the full weekend. I've said it before and I'll keep saying it: Celebrity is the absolute BEST at conventions and competitions. This was my girls' second Celebrity convention and we've been to several Celebrity competitions and Nationals at Sea. They have the most well run events and by far the nicest and most helpful staff. Showstopper comps are also ran very well, but the atmosphere and friendliness of Drew and his staff definitely put Celebrity over the top as the Best of the Best. For any studios out there who may be reading this and trying to decide where to attend, you will not be disappointed with Celebrity!!
This review is for the convention. We just attended this convention at Great Wolf Lodge in Washington. What an amazing event!!!! This convention/competition never disappoints! The teachers were involved and inspiring. They gave attention to all the dancers. It was always the same 3 dancers picked out in literally every single class, but they were pretty good. The staff is super friendly and involved. Love the merchandise and the hot lunch that is provided. We absolutely love this event and can't wait until next year!
Love, Love Love Celebrity Dance Competition and their staff! Their competition is run so smoothly and they make it so much fun for all the dancers and the parents!! We have attended a Nationals and Sea when my daughter was on the Junior Crew and it was a trip my daughter and family will never forget. We hope to attend another Nationals within the next few years before my daughter graduates. One of the highlights is always the Celebrity strut!! We always look forward to them coming to Iowa each year! We are bummed they won't be coming to Iowa this year for the convention, but we will still attend the competition hands down!! See you in February!!
Getting to dance at a Celebrity regional event this past competition season was easily one of the highlights of my year! Everything ran super smoothly, the staff was beyond helpful and kind, and I truly felt like a Celebrity for the duration of the entire regional event! The company does an excellent job of making all dancers feel welcome and special, which truly made the competition so enjoyable and fun! Celebrity is also special in the sense that they have so many opportunities for their participating dancers. I was chosen for a wonderful opportunity known as the Celebrity Crew and to say I am excited to dance for and represent Celebrity at their Nationals at Sea is an understatement! I would encourage ALL dance studios to partake in a Celebrity regional near them. It is an experience you will never forget and a competition you will definitely want to add to the annual schedule.
Celebrity Dance Competition has always been my favorite competition to attend. It is amazing how smoothly and ON TIME this competition runs, which is something very rare for most other competitions. The staff is not only professional, but also extremely helpful and kind. The connections and friendships made between the staff ad the dancers are unlike anything that you would find at any other competition. It is quite easy to see how much the staff absolutely loves what they are doing, therefor making it a fun and loving atmosphere for all dancers AND families to be in. I highly recommend attending Celebrity Dance Competitions; they truly do make every dancer feel like a celebrity!
The Celebrity Dance Compeitions have always been and always will be my favorite competition for many reasons. Celebrity brings many dancers from many different places together to celebrate the art of dance and share what they have worked so hard on. The panel of judges are exquisite and in my opinion the top in the dance industry. I always love getting my judging sheets back because I can tell they care about me and want me to improve. I always meet so many new and kind people from the celebrity staff when i attend their competitions & conventions. The staff cares about making you feel like a part of the celebrity family. I also love how the competition is on time because that doesn't happen a lot. I definitely would recommend going to a celebrity competition or convention because of many reasons. You will not only grow as a dancer, but as a person too!
I attended Celebrity regionals in Mesa, AZ. I have been going to Celebrity for a couple of years now and every year they continue to prove that they are the best of the best. They are always on time and the staff is so supportive. I always enjoy the Celebrity experience and can't wait to go back next year!
The staff is warm and welcoming! Competition ran on time and the judging was fair with top awards across the genres represented. Pretty disappointed in the overall winner in the oldest division because the content was really too adult. Even thought the division goes through age 19, it was inappropriate and I am always dismayed when those types of dances are given high awards. We attended the May 2017 Mesa event.
We greatly appreciate your feedback on our event in Arizona! We're so happy you enjoyed the Celebrity Staff and Judges. In order to keep our events family friendly, the judges are reserved the right to deduct points from any routine they deem inappropriate in regards to content, music or costume and they have exercised this right in the past. After reviewing the solo in question with our judging director, we are hard-pressed to find the indecency in the instrumental music selection, the dress and the dancer's personal experience in a car accident. Because of the routine's outstanding score, the solo can be seen on the Celebrity Channel at https://dancecelebrity.com/celebrity-channel-2017/ under the Phoenix tab. If this is not the routine you were referring to, please email us at email@example.com so we can review the correct routine. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you at another Celebrity Event soon!
My kiddos love to dance, and over the years we have spent hours and hours at conventions and competitions. Without a doubt, there is a difference! Celebrity is a drastically better experience than any other! The dancers are known - not by an assigned number like cattle - but by the name of their dance! They have staff walking around making sure everyone is comfortable and aware of which dancer is on deck! Everyone is accessible and friendly.. it feels like family! Dance Down is a great way to stretch the dancers while having a blast.. And the awards are the most amazing dance party ever! Beach balls, music, and dancing.. the energy couldn't be higher and it exudes from the staff-- who are CLEARLY having fun! As a parent that spent three full days there with four of my kids.. I had as big a blast as my dancers! We love the Celebrity treatment and the Celebrity Experience and will look forward to all events hosted by this crew. They are in a league of their own for sure!
Thank you for your kind words! We love your kiddos and are always excited to celebrate them. See you at another Celebrity Event soon!
Being a graduating senior and looking back on years past, I definitely feel like growing up on the Celebrity stage was such a blessing. They are professional, helpful, and most of all KIND! From asking questions backstage to asking questions via email, the Celebrity staff is always so helpful in making sure all dancers, parents, and teachers are comfortable and prepared. Having experienced their regional competitions, convention, and national competition I am so glad I had the opportunity to experience such an amazing event growing up!
My daughter has done this competition 3 years in a row and I LOVE how they make their dancers feel like Celebrities. All the hard work these dancers put in at the studio to get ready for competitions, Celebrity always rewards them for it. I also have to say that my daughter loves to dance but she gets a little scared when she meets new people. The staff at Celebrities made her feel so comfortable and she really shined on stage this year. Thank You and we will see you next year!!!!
An all around great competition. It runs very smoothly, sticks to the schedule, and is on time which is difficult to say for some other competitions I've been to. The staff is always very nice and the Dance Down is a blast! This is a competition I look forward to every season!
The staff is so friendly and the environment is very inviting, Celebrity really makes me feel like a Celebrity! The judges give amazing feedback and scores to help improve, theyfollow the scheduling, stay mostly on time, and they give out amazing free tanks or t-shirts. I won celebrity nationals crew for this summer and can't wait to become part of the wonderful family and to create some amazing friends and relationships.
I love this competition. They really do treat everyone like a celebrity :). I am glad to be a part of the senior crew this year for nationals at sea! This is overall my favorite dance competition <3.
We just attended Celebrity Seattle this past weekend. We only took 3 dancers(6 solos). They had a great time!!! The staff is very friendly. Merchandise is great and they had a great $10 bin full of items. Love how they give shirts to all competitors. The event ran smoothly and on time. The awards ceremony is so much fun for the dancers. We are from a small studio, and the amount of hours our dancers receive falls in the middle level for other competitions. Celebrity does not have levels, but we have a few dancers that like to test themselves and choose this competition because they do go against all levels. The judges are very fair. Our girl's age bracket was very big (67 solos), but they held their own!!! Was glad to see they definitely don't just hand out platinums. There were a lot of golds and high golds given, and honestly I was so happy to see my daughter received 2 high golds and even happier when I saw how close to platinums her scores were. Even some of the best studios around were receiving high golds, so I was so proud that our dancers were scoring right with them. Love how they also do a top 3 within each dance style. My daughter placed in the top 3 with both solos in her categories. Love their trophies too! My daughter was just saying today how much fun she had at Celebrity! I also really like how they have a parent login where you can see your child's scores. I wish all competitions had parent logins and it would be awesome if more competitions would show in that login where your child placed, if they didn't place in the overalls. Overall, this competition is one of our favorites for sure!!!Can't wait for their convention in the fall!!!
We just attended our fist competition with them in Oklahoma, and my dancers and I were so impressed. We had no idea a competition could be so well organized and actually run true to the estimated performance times. The staff is amazing! They were eager to help in any way they could, and they made us feel welcomed and loved. They took the time to talk to all my dancers and my coaches. They made us feel important, and like we were apart of the Celebrity family. The judges critiques were not only helpful but also encouraging. The awards were crazy fun. They create such a great energy that my coaches and I couldn't help but have a dance party back stage while the dancers were having a blast on stage. Celebrity is by far our new favorite competition!
Staff is amazing they are all so helpful rather you are needing product, pictures or checking in backstage. I love that no matter what they are always running on time and pretty much to the exact time as what is listed in the program. My son loves the dance down experience and the opportunity to grow as a dancer from the competition. He loves the convention in addition to your staff. You are all a family and it is felt from the time you register until you leave the event. I wish i could give a 10.
Five stars for an amazing performance, customer service and kindness.
Customer service overall performance and organized events
We had our first experience at Celebrity this year and it was super!! My
daughter enjoyed and grew from the convention classes as well as from the
solo competition. The experience was definitely a 5 star experience! She
and her teammates continually talk about it till this day.
My daughter has been attending Celebrity competition for many years,
including Nationals at Sea. She has also had the opportunity to attend
Celebrity Convention since its first year. I give them 5 stars on both.
Competitions are run smoothly and on time, staff is friendly,
atmosphere is family-friendly and judging staff are well-qualified and
provide excellent feedback. I can\'t speak highly enough of the
conventions: EXCEPTIONAL instructors, warm atmosphere, well-organized, and
not oversold. Quality of instruction is the emphasis over quantity of
attendees. Although there have been hiccups along the growth curve of the
convention, any issues have been addressed promptly and professionally. AND
(THIS IS HUGE), their administrative staff not only listen to feedback,
they personally solicit it. I don\'t mean the blanket email sent after
the event to all attendees...I mean personal phone calls and emails to the
studio. In general, their organizational staff is the epitome of customer
service--from prompt email response prior to and following events, to warm,
friendly and professional staff AT events. Again, 5 stars.
year, I ask my daughter which events she would like to prioritize, and
Celebrity competition and convention is on the list every year. We look
forward to many more in the years ahead.
Love, Love, Love Celebrity!! The staff is the best!! We always have a
great experience at their competitions. I would give them 6 stars if I
This was my daughter\'s first Celebrity convention experience and she
absolutely loved it! She\'s been to a few competitions and they are one
of our favorites now along with the conventions! Their staff is amazing and
professional! The teachers are inspirational!
Thank you for attending Celebrity! We appreciate your kind words and we
hope to see you in 2017!
we totally love to goto celeberty comps.... they getthe kids rockn!!
Thank you for being a Celebrity!
I absolutely look forward to our Celebrity competition every year! The
entire experience is very positive. The judges are encouraging and
constructive. The staff is absolutely amazing! I had to go to nationals by
myself with my daughter without our whole dance company. The staff knew we
were pretty much by ourselves and really made a point to make me, as my
daughter\'s mother and dance advocate for her first national competition,
very comfortable. The staff even help my daughter get stage ready before
her solos. The photography company that does all of the competitions is
extremely professional. They are courteous, on task, and provide great
Thank you for your review! We are happy to have you and your daughter in
our Celebrity Family and we look forward to seeing you at another event
Sorry to disagree with these other reviews, but even being very charitable
this was not a good competition as far as consistent judging and the
production. The people running it were nice, that\'s about it, otherwise

Celebrity is a very fun comp! They have a dance down that is amazing fun!!
They offer prizes and scholarships! I can\'t wait for celebrity at Sea
nationals this year!!!!! Yup that\'s right their nationals is on a cruise
We can\'t wait to cruise with you this summer! See you on board!
We recently attended The Celebrity Dance Convention in Des Moines, Iowa. I
am a new studio and took 6 students, most of which have never had the
opportunity to attend a convention and several of which who had only been
dancing for under a year. The faculty at this convention were phenomenal.
In my 30 years of dancing, I have never seen a better convention. The
awards were not just given to your typical, amazing technique, front &
center, confident, kind of dancer, but also several awards were given to
kids who just never gave up. I am impressed and can not say enough about
this convention. We will be attending their convention again next year and
hope to compete at one of their events in the future as well. Thank you
Celebrity for an amazing weekend and for inspiring my kids!
We are so glad you enjoyed the Celebrity Experience! Iowa was a great event
and we cannot wait to see you and your dancers again at Regionals. Thank
you for being a Celebrity!
We have been going to Celebrity Dance Competition regional tour the last 4
years and we absolutely love their competitions. Recently, we attended
their convention in Northern CA. They hosted a well organized and
oustanding event. The teachers were amazing and very nurturing. The staff
was professional and very friendly. The classes weren\'t crowded at all
unlike other conventions. They provided lunches for the kids both days
which was awesome. Their scholarships were also very generous! I HIGHLY
RECOMMEND THEIR CONVENTIONS.
Thank you for your recommendation. It was a pleasure to serve you and we
hope to see you again at a Celebrity Event soon!
We have done this competition, and loved it, but this review is on their
convention we just attended this weekend in Washington. Absolutely
amazing!!! Staff is friendly and helpful. The teachers, choreography, and
song choices were wonderful! Love how if you participated in their comp,
you receive a discount on their convention. A wonderful hot lunch is
included in the price for each day, as well as a celebrity tank top!
It\'s not over crowded, as other conventions are, so plenty of room to
move. It\'s also a bonus that it\'s held at Great Wolf Lodge! This is
our favorite convention!!!
Thank you for choosing Celebrity! We had a blast in Washington and we are
looking forward to returning in 2017!
Love this competition! So classy
We love you too! Thank you for being a Celebrity!
For the past 10 years, Celebrity Competitions have been my most favorite of
competitions to take our daughters to compete in - they truly treat the
dancers like celebrities - they will ALWAYS be at the top, in my opinion!!
We love watching dancers grow up at Celebrity and we look forward to the
times ahead! Thank you for choosing Celebrity year after year!
Love this competition! Definitely my favorite!
You\'re making us blush! Thank you for being a Celebrity!
Loved the positive dance atmosphere. The whole staff was very supportive
We appreciate your review and look forward to seeing you at another
Celebrity Event soon!
Celebrity has been amazing for my son and his growth as a dancer. They
are super friendly and give great advice to the kids for pursuing their
Thank you for your review! It is a pleasure to watch our dancers pursue
Celebrity is a very professional and organized event that I love attending!
The faculty are all very welcoming and they make sure to make a positive
and supportive environment for the dancers!
Thank you for attending Celebrity and for your kind review! We hope to see
you again soon!
I loved celebrity competition and all the staff working it was great!
We love you too! Thank you for reviewing Celebrity!
Celebrity is an amazing competition/convention that truly treats every
celebrity guest/ family like a celebrity. They work so hard to make sure
every one has the best possible experience.
We appreciate you taking the time to review Celebrity and we look forward
to serving you again in 2017!
I loved everything about it! The faculty and and the people there were
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your Celebrity Experience! Thank you for
We LOVE Celebrity!
We love you too!
We travel to Celebrity in Iowa each year and love that we get an on time,
fun, family friendly event. We are so excited that Celebrity will have
convention in Iowa this year. We know it is going to be amazing like
everything they do. Drew and the entire team make us Celebrities!
This is such a well run organization. We have attended conventions,
Nationals at Sea as well as Regional Events with Celebrity. They do an
amazing job and it is on my dancer\'s list of favorite events to attend.
Awards are well run, clear and just the right amount of time. The judging
critiques are excellent. Judges don\'t just say what they want to see
fixed, they tell you how to fix it. Conventions classes are excellent. We
hope there will be a Nationals out of California again next year :)
This is by far the best competition we have ever been to. The staff is
amazing and so invested in the event. They make everyone feel so good from
the minute you walk in the door. We love the dance down it is a great
practice audition for the kids. They always run on time and the energy is
so positive. If you have never done a Celebrity Event you need to put it on
your schedule you wont be dissapointed.
Celebrity Dance Competitions are the best! We have attended a few in the
past. They are very professional and appreciate all the dancers. Would
recommend every dance studio to attend at least one of their competitions.
Celebrity Dance Competitions are the best! We have attended these
competitions/conventions for many years. They impressed me from the
beginning with how personable they were. The entire faculty is so
approachable. The judges actually greet people when the facility doors
open up just before competition starts. I\'ve never seen another
competition do this! They always seem to run on time, their awards
ceremonies are fun, smooth, and easy to follow (And they don\'t last
forever, either). My girls have had the honor of being chosen for both
Junior and Senior Crew. This opportunity to dance at Nationals with their
faculty and other crew members is so special. They get amazing training,
and always have a good time with this group of amazing people. The
conventions they have are also top notch. Faculty teach great classes and
make every dancer feel welcome. I feel blessed that my girls have grown as
dancers over the years by attending Celebrity conventions/competitions.
Always great feedback, too, from their judges on each performance! Thank
you, Thank you for all that you do for our dancers!
I love celebrity!!! The staff is amazing and so nice and they always make
sure everyone is having fun. This competition always makes me feel like a
celebrity ;) This past year was my third year competing at Celebrity and it
is still one of the best competitions I have been to. The atmosphere is so
friendly and the staff always wants you to succeed. I am so excited to be
apart of the Celebrity Crew this year and for nationals at sea!!!
Our daughter had another amazing experience at Celebrity this year, this is
her second year as a Dance Troupe member. The dancers are challenged to be
their best amidst an atmosphere that is bigger than a \"dance
competition\", as an observer it really felt like we were among a
celebration of dance for all. From the support staff to the judges
services was A+. Acknowledgement and praise was sincere. t is one thing
when Mom and Dad give you praise, quite another to hear it from another
accomplished dancer. I observe when we are Celebrity that all staff are
there for the dancers (and families), you share the passion with them, you
have fun with them, you support them and you also take the time to give
them genuine feedback to be the best they can be. The dance off is also
super fun and challenging for them. I like how you create a balance of
\"these are just kids\" with \"keeping it real\" for what this type
of experience really is for a professional dancer. Great stuff. As a
former event planner I know the dancers do not see the “behind the
scenes” stuff like set-ups until 1:00 a.m. or the last minute
nonfunctional sound systems or working with the flu or a broken foot or the
“challenging Moms and Dads”. I know it is not all glamour and lights
for the Celebrity crew yet they make it seem flawless. Judging wise.... I
think they have high expectations for the dancers yet also make sure every
dancer has fun. Most important!!! Things ran on time too
Thank you for all your kind words and feedback! It is our pleasure to serve
you and we hope to see you and your dancer at another Celebrity Event soon!
I really love the Celebrity Dance Competition! Drew and the rest of the
staff are very nice and always accommodating! If we ever needed anything
they were also easy to find! We did their regional and national competition
2 years ago and just did their convention And regional competition in
Dallas for 2015-2016 and I think it\'s even better now! Everything ran on
schedule and was well organized! The Celebrity tanks they give to all the
dancers are a very nice touch. The judging seemed fair and constant and
lots of awards were given. And we all especially love doing the Celebrity
Strut before the awards ceremonies! We can\'t wait to cruise with them
next summer for nationals!
Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at
Our first experience with Celebrity was awesome. Had a great time,
everything was professional and smooth. My dancer loved it.
We appreciate your kind words and we hope to see you and your dancer again
in the future!
We just finished the Celebrity Dallas competition. This was our fourth
Celebrity event including two regional competitions, one Nationals at Sea,
and one convention. My kids have loved every one of them. They love the
free t-shirts and the fun, high energy award ceremonies where they get to
walk on the red carpet like a real celebrity. I like the extremely
friendly and helpful staff. I also like that they have several age
categories so that young, less experienced dancers aren\'t competing
against much better dancers who are a few years older. The competition was
usually on time or not very far off schedule. I also like that they only
have top 3 overall winners for each age and dance size. I don\'t like
the comps where they announce and line up top 10 overall winners,
especially when there are barely even 10 dances total!. That makes the
awards take so much longer. Drew and his staff are amazing and put on a
very organized and well run competition. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Thank you for your recommendation! We look forward to watching your dancer
grow for years to come. See you at Celebrity Convention!
We\'ve been to many competitions in he last few years and Celebrity is my
favorite. They are professional and everything runs so smoothly. Mr. Drew
is great with the kids and they all love him.
Thank you for rating Celebrity! We will pass along your kind words to Drew!
We had an amazing time..this was my twin daughters first time competing a
trio and 2nd time in a group routine.. They did great and I am very happy
with their scores!!! I love the awards ceremony and how fun it is for all
of the dancers. We will be back for sure!!! Thanks for having us
Congratulations to both of your daughters! We look forward to seeing them
at another Celebrity Event soon!
Not enough stars
You\'re a star :)
I love Drew and the staff also the competitions!!!!!!!
This comp is great, high energy, very supportive and encouraging. We had
issues with the stage floor, you had to change in one building and walk
outside to the get to the performance area and it was raining. Many of the
competitors were walking in puddles in their dance shoes and then tracking
water onto the dance floor. During my daughters solo, which she dances
barefoot, she hit one of these puddles and slipped. She recovered but it
could have been much worse. When we told the stage manager they said ok,
but I never saw anyone check the floor. There were also times that hair
pieces, feathers, etc. were still onstage when they started the next
number. They need to be more vigilant in making sure that the floor is
clear and dry so that no one gets hurt. Awards are very long and hard to
Thank you for your feedback! We discussed your review with our backstage
runner who said the stage was swept about one number after you informed
them of the issue. While our rules state it is the competitor\'s
responsibility to leave the stage clear after their routine, we will
continue to do our best at maintaining a safe environment when rain or
other unexpected events occur. As for awards, all Celebrity Award
ceremonies are less than an hour long and typically range from 35-45
minutes. Unfortunately, it is hard to shave off any more time without
taking away the recognition that each winning routine deserves. If you
still have concerns, please feel free to email
email@example.com. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you
at another Celebrity Event soon!
We have attended the Great Wolf Celebrity Convention and competitions for
years. They always run on time, feedback is useful and scoring fair. We
have delevoped lasting relationships with the staff because, well, they are
adorable and put their everything into their work. It is a family friendly
environment. Highly recommend to those looking for an inclusive, friendly
and entertaining dance community. Seattle has some serious talent in
attendance so start rehearsing now!
Celebrity loves all our Washington Dancers! Thank you for always being in
attendance. We look forward to seeing you and your dancer again soon!

wanted to try the comp. We only took 4 solos. The girls had a

Thank you so much for your feedback! Celebrity does not offer levels of
competition based on ability because they are difficult to regulate prior
to the event. In the past, we’ve had bad experiences with competitors
abusing and taking advantage of those systems. Instead, we have reduced the
number of routines in each section by doubling the number of age divisions
that we offer. While most competitions only have 3 or 4 age divisions,
Celebrity has 9. The dancers stay in these divisions all the way through
overall awards and are never lumped together with any other age division.
By doing this, we have accomplished smaller sections in a way that can be
realistically regulated. In Washington, the largest category in the
Intermediate age range (9-10) only had 17 routines. You may be referring to
overalls, in which case all Intermediate soloists go head to head,
regardless of the style of dance. I hope this brings more insight and
clarity to the situation. We look forward to seeing you at a Celebrity
Event again soon!
The kids absolutely loved this competition! Celebrity makes competitions
FUN! Each dancer receives a free bling-ed tank top. Awards ceremonies are
made special by up-beat music, shooting confetti, and winners get to walk
to pink carpet! The swag is very stylish and different than the usual
garb. I have two minor complaints:
First, our competition ran very late
(midnight) and the girls had to return very early (7am) this made for an
exhausting weekend for my 12 year-old. Second, the judges didn\'t seem
to acknowledge dances that were technically difficult or outstandingly
executed. However, I\'ve never agreed with every judging decision at any
competition. All in all, it was a fun experience & I would like to return
Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate your feedback
tremendously. While a lot of factors go into scheduling routines, Celebrity
tries to make sure our events end at a reasonable hour and that the dancers
are not competing too late. The last routine to compete on Saturday, in
Michigan, was at 8:33pm and the first routine on Sunday morning was at 9am.
As for the judging, please refer to your dancer\'s score sheets and
critiques for more clarification. Technique only represents a portion of
the routine\'s overall score. A phenomenal technique score could have
been pulled down by lower scores in the Performance, Choreography, Routine
Execution, or Costume & Appearance categories. We would love to further
investigate any specific discrepancies you noticed. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org with more details regarding your concerns
about judging. Everyone at Celebrity looks forward to having you back in
This company goes above and beyond EVERY YEAR. It is consistently THE
competition the kids at my studio love the most. They don\'t always win,
but it doesn\'t matter. The staff and the judges truly do make them feel
like \"celebrities\" :-)
Thank you for your loyalty! We look forward to seeing you and your talented
dancers at another Celebrity Event soon!
A wonderful experience!!
We\'re glad you enjoyed your experience!
Great competition!!! Staff was friendly & helpful. Facilities were great.
Celebrity was by far one of the best competitions our studio has attended.
Thanks for a wonderful weekend in OKC. Looking forward to Nationals at
Celebrity had a blast hosting our first competition in Oklahoma! We cannot
wait to see everyone next year!
We had a few soloists attend this competition to try it out. They did well
however there was VERY little critique or feedback and each dancer from our
studio received the the exact same score in every area from every judge
which ended up with three identical total scores. I have NEVER seen this
happen at a competition. We won\'t be attending this one again.
Thank you for your feedback! Based on your comments, we reviewed all score
sheets and judges\' critiques looking for the instances you have
described. Only one studio brought a few soloists and out of those
routines, only one had identical scores from all 3 judges. While this does
not typically occur, it is possible. We do not see the issue in that
occurring nor would we alter the scores submitted by the judges to prevent
it from happening. As far as the critiques themselves, all judges seem to
be very active throughout the tapes and provide comments ranging from
technique to performance and from costuming to movement quality. If you
are still unsatisfied with your Celebrity Experience, we would love the
opportunity to make things right. Email us at email@example.com
so we can further investigate your concerns. We hope to serve you again!
The girls loved it and had so much fun. Personally I think the awards are a
little long of a process. The staff is super energetic and very helpful.
We really appreciate your review! Celebrity acknowledges that award
ceremonies can be long. With that in mind, we always keep them under an
hour with majority ranging from 30-45 minutes. We will continue to work
towards keeping our award ceremonies as short as possible while still
taking the time to celebrate each dancer on their achievements. Thank you
for choosing Celebrity and we hope to see you at another event soon!
The best from the rest!five stars
Love love love Celebrity and everything about it :) we are having the best
time and the girls are having a lot of fun. Thank you to drew and all of
the wonderful Staff
Celebrity loves you too! Enjoy the rest of your competition season!
Amazing weekend so far, all of the girls and guys seem to be having a blast
and the awards ceremony was a lot of fun. We look forward to future events
We are so glad you and your dancers enjoyed yourselves at Celebrity! We
hope to meet you in Des Moines for Celebrity Convention this fall!
This was the first time my daughter performed her solo...we had a blast and
all the staff was amazing!
Congratulations! Celebrity cannot wait to watch her grow in the years
We had so much fun evert hinges was clean, energetic and beautiful. The
venue was very acmendating and we really enjoyed being in Newnan
Thank you for joining us in Newnan! We hope to see you again next year!
Best competition ever! They always make it about the dancers!! We love
The dancers are our biggest motivation! Celebrity loves you too!
This competition overall is a good experience. The staff is super nice.
They treat the dancers like stars, and look forward to going on the cruise
We appreciate your feedback! See you on board Nationals at Sea!
This is by far my favorite competition. The dancers are made to feel like a
\"celebrity\". The judges and staff are super nice. They are very
involved with the kids. They dance and sing with them before award
ceremonies. They take pictures With the dancers and a fun time is had by
all. I can\'t wait to cruise with celebrity this summer.
Thank you for your kind words! See you on board Nationals at Sea!
Great experience as Always with Celebrity im Newnan, Ga!!
We are glad you enjoyed your Celebrity Experience and we look forward to
seeing you at another event soon!
This is an excellent competition experience. Dancers are given a modern
star \"celebrity\" treatment as they compete with a beautiful set and
lighting. Awards are an awesome experience complete with dances, songs, and
fun. Winners get to walk the red carpet. Each segment is set up with an
awesome video to hype you up for competition, awards, or the special dance
downs they host. Truly filled with extras the dance down allows the dancers
to enter an audition environment to learn a series of combos and get chosen
from their division. Winners win much more than medals and trophies, as
Celebrity gives away gift certificates and scholarships as well. All our
girls get shirts when we sign in and they got water bottles for
participating in the dance down. The little extras mean a lot. Celebrity
also carries the cutest dance clothes and items in their shop. Drew and
staff make everyone welcome and are a class act. As we were leaving late
Saturday night he was standing at the door telling us goodnight. Can\'t
wait for our Celebrity Cruise experience this summer! Thank you Drew and
staff, see you soon!
We really appreciate your thorough review! See you this summer on board
Nationals at Sea!
I attended this competition in Atlanta. I truly appreciated all the extra
things they did for dancers - videos, free tank top, nice trophies ect. I
do wish this competition had more \"special awards\" as they do not
have any levels of competition. Celebrity is truly a great experience for
all dancers and families. I recommend this event 100% and feel I was truly
treated as a \"celebrity\".
We have taken your review into consideration and will be adding a couple
extra special awards next season! Everyone at Celebrity looks forward to
seeing you in 2017!
We had a great time at Celebrity Sweet \'16 tour. Everything ran so
smooth and timely. The staff was very friendly. Drew is awesome! We had so
much fun. Looking forward to Nationals at Sea!
See you on board Nationals at Sea!
Really friendly staff, great photos and videos, and an overall great
experience! One of my favorite competitions every year. :)
Great dance competition! Runs on time and very smooth. Great staff!
We appreciate your review and we will pass it along to our staff! Enjoy the
rest of your competition season!
I am having soooo much fun and have had a great time at my first

We will pass your comments on to our backstage runners! Thank you for your
This was my daughters first time competing a solo and the young ladies
backstage were so welcoming and made her feel very excited! I really
appreciate that you keep the times of the dances actually on time and
awards aren\'t at a crazy hour. Always excited to come to celebrity, the
energy, people and dancing are great! It\'s a good experience for my
child! Look forward to more events
Congratulations on your daughter\'s first solo! We look forward to
watching her grow!
my daughter and i went on the cruise last year and had seriously, the best
time of our lives... she can\'t wait to see all the staff again at
regionals! she is so sad the studio is skipping nationals this year but we
hope to go again next summer!
I cannot wait until Celebrity!! I attended two conventions last year
because I love them so much! The event is Always organized and the staff
works so hard to keep everyone feeling like celebrities! I really like
that the judges give detailed critiques through the whole dance and not
just part of it. The master classes were amazing and the clothes are so
This was my daughter\'s first time at Celebrity and we were both really
excited as I had read such wonderful reviews! I have to say we were both
disappointed in some aspects of the competition. First, the positives: very
organized and ran on time, great venue, program was reasonably priced,
backstage staff and emcees were extremely helpful and energetic. Negatives:
the scoring system was very unusual (at least compared to the 50+
competitions I have gone to over the past 7 years). No top 10; instead only
a top 3 overall even when there were over 70 entries in my daughter\'s
division. They did do category winners, but I felt these awards were less
meaningful because there were several categories with only one or two
entrants but they got awarded \"1st Place\" anyway. I think a minimum
number of entrants per category would be beneficial. Also, photography
quality was really sub-par compared to other competitions. Finally, staff
at the merchandise desk was not friendly at all and made a really poor
first impression. I wish I had better things to say but unfortunately this
was a below-average competition experience for me.
Thank you for your review! We are sorry you did not fully enjoy your
Celebrity Experience. Our scoring system is simplistic in that each routine
is scored by 3 judges on a 100 point scale, for a possible total of 300
points. Our categories are based on the styles of dance we typically see at
competition. We have no way of predicting how many routines will be entered
in any category and some categories are more popular than others in various
regions of the country. Celebrity acknowledges how hard each dancer works
on their routines all season and we will not exclude a routine because
there is less routines for them to compete against. Rightfully so, our
1st, 2nd, 3rd place trophies are easier to earn than our overalls awards.
At Celebrity, we believe that an overall award is to be coveted and
therefore only given to the top three scores for solos, duo/trios and
groups in each age division. In certain instances, there are less than 10
routines in any given routine size and age division so a top 10, as you
suggest, would not be necessary or exclusive enough. I do apologize for the
quality of your photos. All of our photos are of the highest resolution and
our photographers do their very best to capture every special moment that
unfolds onstage. As many of our reviews support, we pride ourselves on
having superior customer service and providing personal attention at all of
our events. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or give
us a call at the Celebrity Offices and let us know about your customer
service experience and who helped you so we can handle your concerns
appropriately. Thanks again. Everyone at Celebrity hopes you have a great
We\'re glad you enjoyed the event and we look forward to seeing you again
in the future!
Totally loved seeing my company name on the backdrop a great way to
acknowledge the hardworking dancers from every company.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate all of the studios that join us at
Celebrity and we are happy to acknowledge each one!
Great experience and an overall fun time!
We are glad you had a good time at Celebrity and we hope to see you again
Very pleasant experience and there is great backstage help. Overall it is

This event is very fun. The staff is very nice and personable and all
together it is organized and a great experience.
We just experienced another event and I remember how much we love
Thank you for being a Celebrity! We are happy to provide an experience
unlike the rest.
Celebrity will be my 9 year olds first competition, so I can\'t really
rate it yet. I\'m disappointed right from the start though because
Celebrity doesn\'t have levels as other competitions do. My little girl
who only takes 3 classes a week will have to compete with seasoned dancers
who get 3x\'s or more instruction.
Thank you for your review! Celebrity has done levels in the past and found
that the level system is very subjective, hard to regulate and often taken
advantage of. In exchange for levels, Celebrity has 3 times as many age
divisions as most other competitions. By adding these age divisions, there
are more opportunities to place without the ability to take advantage of
the system. We are glad that you chose us for your daughter\'s first
competition experience and we are confident she will leave feeling like a
Celebrity. Our medals and trophies, free tank tops for the dancers,
personal attention and organization set us apart from the rest! Enjoy the

Thank you for your loyalty. We are glad you have fun at Celebrity Events!
Celebrity takes measures to prevent favoritism such as hiring judges from
out-of-state and rotating judges from year to year. Judges score each
routine independently and a computer tabulates all scores for a combined
total. Our judges pride themselves in providing honest scores and critiques
to help dancers grow. Every score is a representation of the routine that
took the stage, without regard to studio affiliation. We hope that your
dancer uses their video critiques to learn and grow as a dancer. If you
have any other comments or concerns, feel free to contact us directly at

We are glad you enjoyed the Celebrity Experience and we look forward to
seeing you next year!
We Love Celebrity Dance conventions and competitions! They work so hard to
get to know all the dancers and families and make the environment fun while
teaching the kids great fundamentals. We also like how they have
competition and convention as two separate events. If you ever get a chance
to do Celebrity Nationals at Sea it is a must! Such an awesome competition
and vacation adventure in one!
We appreciate your kind review! Thank you for selecting Celebrity for all
your competition and convention needs.
Awesome staff! We love Drew! Very well run and very organized! All of our
dancers enjoyed it and they make everyone feel welcome and special! I love
conventions and competitions that make a schedule and follow it and they

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Celebrity! Teachers are genuinely caring towards the
students and take time to help them improve. They are open to talking 1:1
with students. The convention has a family type feel. Classes are
worthwhile and fun. Life lessons are taught along with dance lessons.
Also, convention includes lunch and a tank top with great awards
and dance down.

LOVE Celebrity Dance Competition and Convention! So motivating and
I have been to many conventions in my life, and the Celebrity Dance
Convention stands out SO positively from the rest. The teachers are
absolutely incredible; they provide fun, challenging classes with excellent
instruction and community-oriented attitudes. Additionally, Celebrity\'s
crew goes above and beyond to make the entire experience immersive and
stress-free. The catered lunch, free tanks, and Memories videos all make
the customers feel part of a family. Drew pours his heart and soul into
making sure that everyone has a good time! I can\'t wait to go back next
Thank you for your amazing review! We are excited to have you back in 2016!
Celebrity is one of our favorites! Drew and his staff are friendly,
approachable, and communicative. The environment at Celebrity is the
perfect balance of structured dance education and fun. The atmosphere at
convention and competition is professional, timely and well organized.
From both a parent and teacher perspective I highly recommend Celebrity.
Thank you for your recommendation! We look forward to serving you again in
My daughter has attended Celebrity Dance Convention, Celebrity Competition
and their Nationals at Sea, and we love the events, their staff, crew and
the teachers. My daughter has grown so much from it. Celebrity always
provides a safe, positive, kid and parent friendly place for the dancers to
learn, enjoy and work hard. Teachers are very encouraging, events are
organized, and there are people who can help you out.
It is the only
convention I know that provides free lunch for the dancers.
was their junior crew at nationals one year and it was the best experience
of her life. All in all, for me as a parent, I am very happy to be a part
Thank you for your loyalty! We love watching dancers grow because it makes
our jobs worthwhile. We hope to see your dancer for many more years to
Celebrity Dance Competitions/Conventions are truly one of the best ran
events out there! Well organized and truly amazing staff! We have been to
Celebrity Nationals at Sea, Regional competitions and Celebrity Dance
Conventions at The Great Wolf Lodge. We love to come to Celebrity dance
events! Thanks so much for another great event!
We appreciate your review and hope to see you in 2016!
Hi everyone :) I would love to share my experience with you that I
with the AMAZING Celebrity Competitions/ Conventions &
staff. I have
attending Celebrity competitions for 10 years and
my kids enjoy
minute throughout the weekend. No matter what
they place they are
happy and eager to improve. The positive
atmosphere that is
Celebrity radiated to all the dancers,
parents, and studio
owners. I was
always impressed how important it
was for Celebrity to be
on time to keep a
schedule and to limit their
entries in respect for
everyone involved. We
have dedicated 2
Nationals cruising with Celebrity
which was so much fun
memorable. We have always made sure to
attend their new
that is now in its 2nd season and if you
WELL YOUR MISSING
OUT!!! The instructors are so
passionate with the
dancers and take time to
really understand the kids.
thank you enough for your kindness,
generosity that you show
customers and mainly I appreciate you, for
just being you!! SCORE-
triple platinum plus
Thank you for the Triple Platinum Plus ;) We are glad you and your dancers
have benefited from the Celebrity Experience! We can\'t wait to see you
all next year!
We LOVE Celebrity Dance...They truly treat everyone like they are a
Celebrity! We have been to the competition, convention and Nationals at Sea
I would recommend all of these events to anyone looking for a top notch
experience! The staff is helpful and hands on. At the competitions the
dancers are given the \"pink carpet\" treatment as they are made to
feel like they are a celebrity. The dancers are recognized for their
abilities and given critiques to help them be more successful dancers.
During the conventions the staff truly cares about teaching and the kids
leave the classes with more knowledge and ability then when they came. The
Nationals at Sea is so much fun that my daughter wanted to go back as soon
as the boat docked! It was a great trip with classes, competitions and
friends. I look forward to our next Celebrity Dance event!
Celebrity has continually been an incredible competition and convention for
my daughter! We love attending their events! The staff is always so kind
and incredibly talented!! Keep up the excellence! Looking forward to your
next events in our area!!!
Celebrity Dance events are truly First Class! My daughter\'s first dance
convention experience was with Celebrity Dance Convention in 2013 and it
was fantastic. Hard to believe it could be topped, but it happened this
weekend when my son attended his first dance convention at the Celebrity
2015 Convention in Santa Clara, CA. Every detail of the Celebrity
experience is top notch - from teachers/choreographers, venue/travel
accommodations, market branding, staff assistance, student development to a
parent\'s participant experience. Celebrity Conventions and events
continue to help create great memories of my daughter\'s and now son\'s
dance experiences. Thank you Celebrity!
We\'ve always been a fan of Celebrity, always a positive and motivating
experience... We attended our first Celebrity Convention this past weekend
and it was through the roof AMAZING! \"Best convention ever\" were the
words out of my daughter\'s mouth! The teachers were incredible, and
positive... their energy was on fire, and so in tune with the dancers.. I
love that they provide lunch both days in a room just for the dancers..
Really gives them a chance to bond with new friends they\'ve met there!
We have been attending Celebrity Dance Competitions for the past 6 years!
My girls have ALWAYS loved going! This competition is always run top
notch! The clothing they sell each year is high quaility, fashionable and
SO MUCH FUN! This past weekend my two girls attended the Celebrity
CONVETION! And all I can say is WOW! My girls loved every minute of it!
They loved the entire experience! They both said the teachers were amazing
and very professional! They class sizes were awesome! And both commented
on how much they felt they learned over the weekend! As a parent I loved
The Acting For Dancers class because it\'s so different from most
conventions. No also loved that Celebrity served them lunch!!! No running
out or paying they high hotel prices for lunches! When asked, my kids
would not choose a favorite class because they said they LOVED EVERY
MINUTE!!! And Celebrity, once again did not disappoint in the fashion
department either! We have also been on the Cruise with Celebrity for
Natioanls which was also an amazing experience! All of the staff is very
personable and available and willing to answer any and all questions! They
give great opportunities to their \"crew\" They give out awesome
awards and scholarships at convention and competitions! It is run so
professionally and honestly I am so glad my girls have gotten the
opportunity to grow up with this competition! We will not be missing this
convention and plan to attend many more years!!! Thank you Celebrity, for A
great weekend and for putting on great events year after year! Love your
little dog Duke, too!!!
Best convention we have ever attended!! Staff is phenomenal and so good
Celebrity Dance Convention and Competition are the BEST! Their staff and
judges are personable, professional, available, and easy to talk to. I
highly recommend this convention and competition for dancers of all levels.
The convention is slightly more expensive than others we\'ve attended,
but each dancer gets a tank top (and who doesn\'t spend at least $25 on
some kind of shirt at conventions anyway) plus LUNCH both days! Parents
don\'t have to worry about running around and bringing fast food to their
dancers in the middle of the day. A great teaching staff who give students
personal attention, and assistants who are always smiling and supportive of
the dancers. They even had a dance party that was fun for everyone! WE LOVE
We love our experiences at celebrity dance. Our students and faculty always
have a great time and learn so much. Every year we look forward to
attending a celebrity event! Thanks Drew for all your hard work and
attention to the little details. We always feel like a celebrity with
Celebrity competitions & conventions are such a wonderful experience for
dancers at all skill levels. Amazing!
This competition and convention are extremely professionally run.
Everything from A to Z is covered and smooth. Drew and his team were made
to produce dance events and it shows. I will be a lifetime Celebrity Dance
convention and completion goer.
Simply The best in the industry! They make sure everyone is taken care of,
and treat everyone like a Celebrity! The staff makes it a point to know
you, and your dancers on a first name basis!
The teachers teach fun
choreography, that the kids WANT to take! We only wish we could do this
every weekend! We have done MANY competitions and conventions, and
nothing comes close to Celebrity! They put together a great competition
My studio just attended convention in Denver and it was easily the best
convention we\'ve ever been to. The dancers had plenty of space and they
all got free tanks. There was marley flooring in every room, which is crazy
to see in a ballroom. All the teachers were treated with great meals and
the kids had lunches taken care of as well. What I liked most is that
Celebrity has selected quality teachers that are truly there for the
dancers. It was a very well rounded bunch. Many conventions just hire the
big names and they only care about the 5 best dancers in the room, the rest
might as well be invisible. I\'m picky with teaching styles and I thought
every instructor was top notch. I could rave about them all. I really
appreciated how humble all the teachers were as well. They had no problems
chatting with my dancers and taking pictures when asked. Drew and his staff
run a tight ship and we couldn\'t thank them enough. Celebrity is a
staple for sure!
Excellent quality! Extremely professional!
As a Studio Owner/Director with over 40 years in the industry; Celebrity is
hands down the best competition AND convention!
Celebrity is a great competition that is very well organized. Have
attended their regional and national competitions. Staff is very
knowledgeable and helpful. Best overall competition.
My favorite regional competition we have attended. Drew and his team are
extremely organized and make the competition a great atmosphere for all the
dancers, teachers and parents. We also attended Nationals at Sea and it
was my favorite of all competitions we have attended. Celebrity is my
first choice in competitions!
Celebrity Regionals and Nationals at Sea were amazing! Every aspect creates
this competition and convention as a one of a kind event that brings only
the best experience to dancers, studios , and parents. Celebrity rocks with
energy, positivity, knowledge and talent.
We have loved the Celebrity Regional and Nationals at Sea events for the
last four years! The Crew and Crew Junior intern program is an amazing
experience offered by Celebrity Dance - giving dancers a unique opportunity
to meet and work with talented dancers, choreographers and staff members
from around the country, it is such a wonderful experience for our young
We\'ve only competed with Celebrity for two seasons but they quickly rose
to the top of our list of competitions. We will compete with them every
year from now on! We love the way they schedule their dances to vary
routines by age and group size. It helps keep people there to cheer on
their studio and makes the long days more fun! Our other favorite thing
about Celebrity is that no matter who you ask, apparel desk, back stage
crew or photographer/videographer, everyone knows what\'s going on and
can answer your questions.
We love Celebrity! Every aspect from registration, communication to
awards is very organized. Our students love it!
Celebrity Nationals at Sea was a terrific way to do the
competition/convention. My daughters loved the classes and the judging
during the competition seemed very fair and we got great critiques that
were very useful and will give us things to think about going forward.
Thanks for a wonderful experience!!
Critiques were relevant. Gave specifics to the dancers. As a paying
parent this is important. A critique from someone with a scribble that
says \"arms\" and nothing else does not help the dancer. The
Celebrity judges give thorough critiques. We want to know what a dancer
does right and what they need to work on.
Competition is fun.
Awards are serious fun. Nationals at Sea are insane CRAZY fun!!
Celebrity Dance Competitions is by far the most amazing experience my
daughter & I have ever had! They are professional, detailed-oriented,
efficient in sign ups & operations, super fun, & extremely supportive of
all dancers. I have been to 2 Celebrity regional competitions in the last 2
years and was very impressed by their professionalism and attention to
detail from their marketing to their customer service. As a parent, I did
feel \"like a celebrity\" in the attention I received from on and off
stage interactions, email communication, and excellent customer service. My
daughter also felt \"like a \"celebrity\" with backstage
encouragement from the staff, excellent experience on stage, and absolutely
thinks their branded clothing is FAB! THEN I GOT TO EXPERIENCE NATIONALS AT
SEA. What an experience! Celebrity really knows how to run a \"tight
ship\" - not to sound too punchy. As a first-time nationals experience
and taking my daughter by myself as a parent without our dance studio, I
was a bit nervous about what to expect. Celebrity Competition staff and
director made me feel at ease about the sign up process, cruise
reservations, and dance competition process. Every time I called, I was
greeted with a friendly welcome & all my questions were answered
efficiently & warmly. Then, aboard the ship, WOW, Celebrity really knows
how to make you feel welcome with exactly the right information, flawless
execution of dance details and all with a huge smile and tons of hugs. My
daughter had the BEST experience of her life, even if she did go to
nationals by herself. The entire Celebrity staff and junior crew made her
feel welcomed and consistently was applauded, supported, inspired, and
encouraged. I can\'t say enough WONDERFUL things about Celebrity. We are
looking forward to Celebrity conventions in the Fall and HIGHLY RECOMMEND
any dance studio owner, parent, or instructor to look no further and sign
up NOW for Celebrity Dance Competitions.
So much fun!!!
It was me and my daughters first time going to a celebrity and we loved
every thing about it. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
Great to hear! We hope you come back for years to come!
I have been competing at celebrity for 3 years now. It\'s an amazing
competition with an incredible staff!
Thank you for the great comments! We look forward to seeing you at another
Celebrity Event soon!
Celebrity does it RIGHT! The energy, positivity, and fun is overwhelming!
Celebrity loves you too! Thanks for the review!
I thought this was a really great competition. They were so solicitous,
ran absolutely on time, extremely well organized, great use of tech and
love that they have a company working with them who does something
DIFFERENT with the performance videos. It is branded within an inch of its
life and has TONS of energy. For me, another indication of the value of
the comp is what kind of studios are attracted to attend. The ones we were
there with were incredible kind and collaborative - even during the dance
down. And the parents were great - no nonsense in the auditorium! I will
be there next year!
We really appreciate your feedback and we can\'t wait to see you next
Celebrity is run so well. Drew, Colby and the entire staff make everyone
feel welcome and it is an excellent competition!
Thank you for the kind review! We look forward to seeing you at another
Celebrity Event soon!
Love,love,love Celebrity Dance competitions and conventions! We\'ve been
going to Celebrity for years and have yet to have a negative experience!
Every single one of their staff members are excellent with the kids and
keep things positive and super organized! My daughter said to me after our
last competition \"They really do make you feel like a celebrity!\"
That\'s our #1 goal! We are so happy she feels that way and we can\'t
wait to watch her grow for years to come.
LOVE Celebrity!! We\'ve been going with our entire competitive team and
some of our performance team dancers for years! Drew, Colby and Jenna are
so helpful and some of the best in the industry! Celebrity is always on
schedule, super organized, and the staff is so energetic!
Thank you for the review! We are happy to serve and look forward to seeing
you at another Celebrity Event soon!
