My daughter's studio has attended Intrigue for several years now and have received only the best feedback from our dancers. We appreciate the effort Intrigue sets toward its participants, allowing all to grow as humans before dancers. Intrigue has always been one of our studio's favorite conventions, challenging everyone to dance honest, determined, and of course, different. Dancers often return from venues unable to contain their excitement of how much they learned, eager to share their incredible experiences no matter if it was in person or virtual. We were also lucky enough to host an in-house convention for Intrigue, where dancers were able to take classes in a more intimate setting at their home studio. Within this, we find Intrigue faculty and staff are consistently most pleasant and responsible people and we are immensely grateful for their generous help. My daughter, her studio, and I am truly honored to be a part of something as special and beautiful as Intrigue.
This is the convention and competition we look forward to most each season. Intrigue is organized, professional and always evolving in the best way. It gives dancers a chance to climb the ranks within their program. The dancers get the opportunity to train hard in convention classes, become TP's (the dancers that get to demonstrate the work in class) and can become assistants (the dancers on stage with the instructors.) They also get the chance to choreograph their own work at their NEOVATE event. They have audition opportunities where they can receive scholarships and other awards to help pay for their future entries. The faculty is always top notch. Kevin and Lorraine are easy to reach, quick to give a thorough reply and always willing to help with any questions or concerns. The competition judging is fair. We have had dancers in 1st place and dancers in last place and we always look forward to the honest feedback. They look for something special in each dancer that spans far beyond the obvious "dancer" body and dance tricks. "Dance Different" is the motto and it inspires our dancers to be bold and outside of the box. During Covid they turned our studio into a Micro-Convention and allowed the students to continue to dance through a really difficult time. I can not say enough about this convention or the wonderful people that work here. You should 100% consider Intrigue for your dancers.
Our studio has been attending Intrigue for several years now and it has quickly become one of our favorite conventions! Not only do we love the faculty, the high level of choreography taught, and the family environment - we also love all of the extra opportunities provided that allows our dancers to grow not only in their dancing ability, but also in their choreographic voice. I love that in addition to competition and convention classes, they provide improv challenges and choreographic opportunities like collaboration, imagination and sidekick. It helps dancers that are interested in pursuing dance after high school with choreographic experiences to help them further develop their own style. The assistant program is also like no other and really helps those dancers learn the ins and outs of this part of the industry and growing so much in the process. Intrigue is a family and one we are super happy to be part of!
My studio has been attending Intrigue Dance Intensive for over 12 years and there is nothing like it! The professionalism from the staff and the quality of faculty they have is top notch! All of the staff and faculty treat everyone like family when you attend one of their events. The classes are motivating and inspiring. They offer many different opportunities to the dancers that attend such as Improv (one of the first conventions to offer improv) , imagination competition students have the opportunity to bring their chroegraphy to life, collaborative competition where the students again choreograph themselves and many more opportunities! My students leave so eager and motivated to grow! They are constantly looking as a company for new ways to improve and elevate! I cannot recommend this company enough! Try it once and you will never look back! They are amazing!
We have been attending Intrigue as a studio for several years. Our students have traveled to many Intrigue events in different cities over the years. The overall tone and energy of the staff, faculty, and community is unlike any other convention experience. They create a safe space for dancers to nurture their passion and talents for dance. Intrigue gives all dancers the opportunity to explore the creative aspect of dance as well as learning and performing. It truly is an atmosphere that fosters the "Dance Different" model. The classes are not only educational and informative, but the primary focuses are on the dancers growth as well as the exploration of space and form. It is a celebration of dance and the dancers. Faculty are giving and caring and they believe in the potential of all dancers at varying levels of their dance journey. Intrigue is by far our favorite convention.
Intrigue is one of a kind. They empower students to find their inner passion and dance different. They let them explore in ways that no other convention does. Dancer’s are able to create with no boundaries. They give them a platform to shine! There is a place for all that attend. No matter what level each dancer will leave the weekend feeling inspired. The staff is amazing: caring, kind and attentive. They go the extra mile to make sure everyone has a great weekend. The faculty is outstanding! Every single one of them has something different to offer and the love they give to the kids is endless….. they are all such an inspiration to these kids that aspire to dance! The judging is always fair. This company is on a another level. You will not be disappointed!
Really enjoyed this convention. Wasn't overly packed where the girls could hardly dance or see the instructor, nice venue, great teachers, improv competition was fun. Overall just a good experience in Minneapolis.
We are getting ready to attend for our 3rd straight year. LOVE!! Casper is
fantastic, kids love him. One of their new teachers Brodie is awesome as
The director is super nice and love the showcase. Also really like the
This is the 2nd year we have been to Intrigue and I really like this
convention. I also really love Lorraine. She is super helpful and I
sweet! I also love the diverse teaching line-up this company has. My
favorite part of the weekend is always the closing dance number the kids
get to present. I think this is an added incentive for the kids to be able
to perform on stage and show an audience a fraction of what they learned
over the course of the weekend. Go Intrigue!
it\'s a great experience for my 12 years daughter
Amazing staff and love the improv comp!!

Amazing! Great faculty and more important the feedback was outstanding
We loved this convention! It was well organized and the instructors were
amazing! I loved that they had an improv competition!
Best convention out there. Super organized, amazing choreographers. They
have three levels and I have noticed how they pay attention to all the
kids, not just the ones in the front plus they are not overcrowded like
conventions out there. They give out A LOT of scholarships at
convention. All dancers get to participate in the finale show
awesome and so much fun!! My daughter loves it.
One of the best! The choreographers are amazing. My kids enjoyed being
challenged. They have 3 different levels so your child can attend a level
they feel comfortable at. Highly recommend!
My daughter\'s favorite convention by far - awesome faculty, great
feedback and always a fun and inspiring weekend!
