DUPREE DANCE EXPO

My studio and I love Dupree! The faculty here is great! They are good about managing the size they have in convention and are really uplifting and inspiring in class! I love Terrill and Eric! This competition just gives out really good vibes and is so much fun!

This convention/competition was a strange experience. I am always skeptical of conventions that do not issue entrant numbers. This made it very awkward during the classes as teachers tried to remember which dancers they wanted to call out for demonstrations or scholarships. One teacher even referred to the process as "where's Waldo." The convention rooms were bare minimum with low tech AV equipment,very small stage, and no backdrop. It was very uninspiring for the dancers. There was only a handheld mic instead of a headset so it was useless for the teachers to try to demonstrate and speak at the same time. The faculty was ok. The ballet guy was great but the jazz teacher was literally on the phone while on stage in the middle of class. Very confusing. The competition judging was a joke. The critiques were very positive but made no mention of why a dance or dancer might have scored high or low. Our school did well but maybe too well? We can't figure out why some of our groups scored high when they shouldn't have and vice versa. The solos divisions were equally confusing. One little 8-and-under girl was clearly the winner but they gave the first place to a little boy who didn't actually do much dancing. He did an adorable skit but it wasn't dancing. It was more of the same for the other divisions. Perhaps the judges were just exhausted? I also spoke with some of the family who own Dupree and some of their children were competing that day. I am not accusing any judges of favoritism but it seems like a conflict of interest to have your children compete at your own competition. Just looks bad. This competition/convention was such a disappointemnet that we won't even return to use our full scholarship. I would recommend this convention if you have very beginner dancers who need a "first time experience" for conventions. It was very low key so it wouldn't be intimidating like some of the bigger conventions. On a positive note , they had 2 great vendors on site. Sadie Jane and another custom dancewear company were on site the entire weekend which was great.

Last year was our first year at Dupree, frankly I found it to be okay, we did their nationals and again thought it to be okay. This year was a total different story. The judging seemed to be much more fair and no favoritism played towards specific studios. The convention is by far one of my favorites. Not a fan of the street sign awards but they are unique

We love Dupree! Great Staff, well organized. Family Friendly! Zac and Kari are awesome. We have returned for the last 10 years and will continue to kick off each year with Dupree. The Host hotel really challenged us this year but Dupree pulled off an amazing experience despite some challenges!

Dupree is by far one of my favorites! I recently attended their 3 day summer intensive. Classes had amazing choreography and instructors! Judging has gotten a little tougher. Classes are definitely challenging, so put in some thought before choosing a phaze. Many awards and scholarships given out. Instructors give great individual attention!

We had a great experience with Dupree Dance this past weekend. My daughter enjoyed the convention classes tremendously; she felt challenged and inspired to do well. The competition judging seemed good, too, with diamonds being few but deserved. They did give out 4 of their 5 levels of awards, which is always good to see. The faculty seemed very enthusiastic about what they were doing, and our dancers had a great time learning from them. Awards are pretty no-nonsense, which we as parents certainly appreciate after a long day! The dancers enjoyed watching their teachers as well as the faculty dance during the showcase. We would enjoy attending Dupree again in the future!

This competition is by far one of my favorites! The choreographers/judges are so much fun and interact with the dancers. Going to convention classes is my favorite part! They give out tons of scholarships, which is a great opportunity for many dancers. The competition also hands out lots of fun judges awards as well. I would recommend this as a \"tester competition\" for the pre-season or even during competition season. My dance company coach loves this one so much that we\'re going to their all-new Nationals this June.

We have been going to Dupree for years. The faculty remember our girls when we walk in the door. The staff is wonderful. They have told me that they really have seen an improvement in my child over the years. The kids have a great time and learn a lot. That is the most important part. My only complaint is the competition seems to run a little late making the mornings a struggle, but I really don\'t see a remedy for that. Highly recommend!

Went to Dupree for the first time this year. I did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised: The faculty was very professional, currently working dancers, and very nice, upbeat and kind. It was a positive experience with lots of interaction, not just a professional onstage showing off. My favorite part was at the end when the faculty was reintroduced, each came out and performed an amazing solo, then halfway through their solo, called up the kids from one of their classes! For example, the tap teacher called up the juniors from her class that day, while the jazz teacher called up the teen class... Everybody was a Star, dancing with the pros in front of their parents and friends! This was so much better than watching one of the performances from last night over again. The judging was fair and professional and everything was on time, loved it! Will be back!

I have been with Dupree for over 30 years and have watched the new owners take them to great heights. I love their faculty. I do not like the fact that they started charging observers last year. Classes are packed, fun, and positive.

Dupree will always be my favorite convention. The teachers are incredibly genuine and helpful and not to mention very talented. They all really care about each dancer taking class to the point where they know many names of returning students and get off the stage to help students individually. Also, their scholarship program (Dupree Dance All-Stars) was the best dance experience I\'ve had. The choreography was incredible and I have the fondest memories of the experience of being surrounded by such amazing, committed, inspiring dancers and people. I would definitely recommend that you attend Dupree at one of their tour stops - It\'s a fabulous convention!
