Inspire National Dance is a wonderful organization. Their regional competitions are exciting and well organized. Their judging is fair and spot on. There are so many opportunities to be recognized besides the dances themselves. Our studio won Most Inspirational Studio, an award we cherish.
The staff is kind, friendly, and calls you by name. That impressed me. The dressing rooms are organized and labeled by studio name, so no fussing about that!!!
The owners and directors are family oriented and love the competitors. They are orderly and on time.
I would give them 10 stars if I could. We are a small studio and I hope we make it back again this year. We have been to a lot of competitions, and hands down, this is the best.
You can feel the joy and family atmosphere. It is a positive experience. One more thing, as busy as they are, they are willing to answer e-mails, texts, and communicate in a patient manner. Dream Makers Dance loves Inspire.
We LOVE Inspire!!!!! We have been attending for 2 seasons now and it's always a great time! We even went to the 2016 nationals in Savannah, we usually attend in Fort Lauderdale. We wish they were coming back in 2018!
It was a great first experience with Inspire. The staff was great, the venue was good, the only issue we had was that it was a 1 day competition. So instead of having things grouped by age and size of dance, it was all spread out throughout the day. It made it a little more hectic than I like for a competition, since I couldn't watch all my girls dances. Not Inspires fault, it was due to the lack of entries.
Oh, my. Where do I begin? We LOVE Inspire. Our studio registered for their
Huntsville regionals this past season. We were planning to attend
Showstoppers national finals, but we loved Inspire SO much that we ended up
attending their nationals in Savannah, Georgia instead. The staff is
absolutely lovely, they\'re all very sweet and approachable. It runs like
clockwork, just so smooth and professional. Any hiccups are dealt with
discretely. They also have a large selection of ADORABLE dancewear that is
very reasonably priced. We\'re excited to come back in March! See yall in
Great first experience with this competition.
Inspire is true to it\'so name. They Inspire. They bring out the best. No
one leaves feeling defeated
Friendly, professional, well organized, fair, overall a great experience!
The best competition we have ever attended. They are encouragers. Well
organized. They learn your name. They share your joy. From Regionals to
Nationals, this is a joyful roadvto travel. Great critiques, even on our
best. We will be back.
My child is an independent competitor. We decided to attend the Boca Raton
Regionals and Nationals this last week. Best decision we made! Staff super
friendly! Judges were very fair. Everything they critiqued on was right on
point! My daughter loved the master classes and All Star choreography
rehearsals at Nationals. The awards were nice! Overall beautiful
experience! We can\'t wait to attend again next season! :-)
If you are looking for a competition with a \"southern, family feel\",
this one is for you! The staff is beyond nice and really gets to know you.
It was not unusual for the staff to just walk up to you and ask your name,
etc. It was not a \"cheesy\" feel however. Judging was fair--in fact,
my child (who is my student) scores were stricter than they have been at
other shows and I AGREE WITH THAT!!! There are lots of awards other than
placement for props, type of routines and even awards for media
hashtags--so lots of chances to win other trophies, etc. The location is
awesome--I love they do a video after the awards and put it on youtube.
That\'s very cool! My daughter was sick during the performance--and it
was no issue to mail her trophies if we wanted. She also had two
performances an hour away the same day and the staff had no issues making
her number 001 so she could go first. I would have gave five stars, but
this is the second year in a row that her video critiques were messed up.
This year, she only got 45 seconds of her routine recorded and there was
only one critique per judge and it was very \"generic\". I was told the
system went down when she was on stage. Such a bummer bc I wanted to use
her critiques for the next show and she had none :( My child won first
place in the Junior competition division, a media award, $500 scholarship
to a convention, invitation to be in the opening number at nationals (all
star) and separate award for her routine. She was the highest scoring solo
of the Petite/Juniors.
A Majority of my students are new to the competitive dance world and this
was the perfect first competition for them! Schedule ran ahead which is
fabulous! I had a scheduling error with one of my dancers and the director
very promptly addressed it, and corrected the error.
My only complaint
was that dancers were allowed to compete in all 3 levels, which I believe
is a little unfair. If a dancer is an elite dancer they should not be
competing solos in both elite and compeition(intermediate). But, it was
something I assumed they would probably change next year!
.ove this compeition.... We will be back.
Inspire NDC competition exceeded our expectations.
If you send an email, you will not only receive a reply within a few hours,
but is very personalized. I was very impressed when I arrived to check-in,
the person I had contacted a month before by email, remembered
me--introduced herself and remembered my daughter. IMPRESSIVE! When we
walked in, the venue sales person greets you with a smile and helped me
find our way to check in. Everyone was there to have fun and help you.
VENUE:For a small town,I am IMPRESSED!This location was top notch-super
clean,nice dressing rooms,everything clearly labeled and stage was
beautiful.Music was alittle loud.
JUDGING:Judging was fair.Being also my
child\'s teacher,I did feel her score in one category may have been lower
than they gave her--NOT COMPLAINING THO! Judges smiled and danced with
every participate. It seemed like even after a long weekend, they were
still having fun.
AWARDS: NICE! Trophies are good size, plaques are
good and they really give A LOT of different awards for judges choice (ten
I believe) to really give everyone a chance to get a trophy. Also you
receive medals for your score placements instead of those crappy ribbons I
OVERALL: My child had a blast. We are independents, which this
competition allows. The competition was run so smoothly and had such great
customer service that it was contagious! I watched girls from different
dance studios supporting each other, high fiving and dancing together at
awards. We had fun, HIGHLY recommend this competition to anyone but
especially a studio or independent that is new to competitions--you will
really have a great introduction to the world of dance competitions!
CHILDS PLACMENT: 1st overall, 1st in category, Highest solo score, judges
choice choreography award, invitation to perform at nationals opening, $25
off solo at nationals, all star award and $500 off Hollywood Tours summer
