My daughter danced at the competition in Ashland, OH on 5/1/2016. I have
always liked Extreme Talent because of the qualified talented judges. I am
a gymnastic judge and I appreciate an expert\'s \"eye\" along with
fair evaluations. However: I was very disappointed in the overall judging
and evaluations. I believe there was a specific judge whom was a
\"tap\" judge. Ironically, the teen and senior solo overall winners
were both tap solos. I feel all three judges should be non specific to a
category. That would make the judging more fair to all the dancers. The
tappers had the advantage at this competition. I would suggest finding
out who the judges are and their backgrounds, before attending the
i attended this competition as a competitor and it was poorly run. small
stage, little discipline in the order numbers competed, and decent
critiques. judges didn\'t comment much on technicality, mostly gave
compliments which were not beneficial. staff was nice at venue but had
little respect for parent communication before and after event. faculty
teachers were friendly and welcoming which was refreshing, but that was the
only good thing. a small company that could be decent if they organized
admins and operations and had better venues and critiques.
This is my favorite dance competition by far!!!! The staff was very
friendly and understanding when it came to costume changes, questions
etc.... I attended their 2015 regional competition in Morgantown, WV. It
was a very great experience. Their judging was fair and i loved the
creative special judges awards that they gave out also. After the awards
ceremony they had workshops available. I participated in the lyrical
workshop taught by Sir Alex the great. Haha. He was fantastic. After the
workshop we talked to hin a little and he complimented me on my
choreography. ( i choreographed a routine andit was the academy level
highest score) this competition was amazing and i cant wait to go back to
it again in 2016!!!!!
Please get a tap judge.
This competition is by far one of the most fun competitions that my studio
attends. They provide SYTYCD judges & offer fun workshops for the kids.
They aren\'t about making money, but making a great experience for
everyone in attendance. We have competed at extreme from the start & plan
to continue until the end ❤️
Great competition! Awesome judges!
This competition is by far one of my favorites to attend! I danced myself
for 15 years and I now have a child to compete and this is the most family
oriented, fun and professional competition I\'ve attended! I will always
be sure to return each year!
My daughter has danced at competitins for going on her 4th year. This is by
far her favorite one!! We love Extreme Talent!! *****
Competition jumped around all day was disappointed all of the age groups
for solos were combined for overalls by divisions and also disappointed
with ribbons as awards for overalls. Critiques didn\'t match scores not
very professional and very friendly staff!!
This competition had the potention to be a great one with good judges,
workshops, and scholarships. However, it needs to be better organized
overall. The website is not very informative leaving alot to
interpretation. In addition, there are no details on Nationals aside from
date leading you to believe it is not a big deal and no different than
inconsistant judging. Very disorganized
Great Competition. Judges have a question and answer session before awards
with the dancers. Ran on schedule and staff is VERY helpful and
accommodating. If you are fortunate to have a mini convention at your city
after the competition your dancers will love the interaction and
instruction from the judges.
