FLUID DANCE CONVENTIONS

Jan 10 2019

I have attended Fluid for 6 years. My 6th year I attended the convention as Fluid Force member, the first year the Force Program was created! Fluid Dance Convention has allowed me to build a dance community in which I will cherish forever. I still talk to the dancers I meet at my first convention with Fluid to this day! I remember leaving every weekend feeling so motivated in my dance training as the environment this event creates is so positive, welcoming, and uplifting! The faculty members truly care about every dancer; learning names and giving personal feedback! I kept going back to Fluid because it was positive and fun, the personal feedback, the friends I made, the fun & unique classes, the small class size and how the faculty continues to stay connected with me. I currently attend a highly ranked college dance program and believe that Fluid had a significant part in how I got to where I am today. I definitely recommend Fluid to anyone that is interested! It is a life changing experience, I am sure you will fall in love with!

Our students, parents and teachers all agree that Fluid is the best competition/convention on the dance circuit. The "on the spot" feedback at competition is done constructively and gives our dancers tools to improve their technique and advance their performance skills. The convention is empowering and fun and the Fluid staff makes all studio's, big and small, feel welcome. We can't wait to attend in 2019!

Our studio has been attending Fluid Dance Conventions for the past 5 years. Our students love the smaller class sizes and individual attention. The oral critiques after each performance are a great way for the kids to get feedback as the judges include lots of positives as well as constructive things to work on. You can tell everyone from the owner to the teachers are invested in making sure the dancers have a weekend to remember. Thank you Fluid Dance!

Thank you for such amazing feedback and, even more so, that your dancers have enjoyed Fluid for so many years! Looking forward to seeing you again this Tour Season!

We love Fluid Dance Conventions! My daughter has been going every year since they began and it is by far her favorite. She loves the individual attention they provide which you don't often get when crammed into a ballroom with 400 kids like many of the conventions out there. The owner and faculty are all very nice as well as extremely talented and approachable. We can't wait until Fluid comes to Minneapolis again this year!

Speaking from a parent's perspective, this is my favorite competition! Judges are fair and give positive and truly constructive critiques-the dancers get immediate feedback while they still remember their performance. The judges/teachers seem to truly appreciate artistry and talent and aren't just rewarding costumes and rhinestones.

I can't say enough good things about Fluid. From the support staff, to the teachers, and even the owner, everybody at Fluid is helpful, supportive, and excited to be there teaching our kids. Fluid has become our favorite convention/competition because of their 'boutique convention' approach. It is refreshing to know that the teachers can actually see all the dancers (unlike a room with 400 dancers in it at some of the 'big name' conventions). Additionally, the teachers are actual working dancers/choreographers working in the industry, not 'Insta-Famous' or celebrity status dancers. There are many options when choosing a convention, but if you want consistent excellent dance instruction, Fluid delivers. We also participated in the competition (solos, no groups ) and everyone of our dancers loved the idea of the immediate feedback and verbal critiques - another thing that makes Fluid stand out! We can't wait to go back in 2019.

Fluid dance has a very supportive and welcoming environment. The convention classes are very educational and self focused. Although you are in a room with dancers from many other studios, you are able to focus on improving yourself and you don't feel like you are being judged by other dancers. At the same time however, there are also many opportunites to meet new people and to dance with others. It is also very helpful to be able to get critiques on your pieces immediately after you have performed them. Because the judges give you corrections immediately after a performance, you know that you have their full attention and that they will really be thinking about everything you are doing in order to give you a strong and useful correction as soon as you are finished. Overall, Fluid Dance is an amazing, supportive, welcoming, and educational convention/competition to go to for dancers of all ages who want to improve and meet new people.

I cannot begin to describe what a wonderful weekend we had at Fluid! We are always looking for a convention that is the right fit for us and I think that we finally found it! As a studio owner, Fluid has many things that I have not found at another convention in quite a long time! If you are looking for a convention with down to earth faculty members who are good at teaching kids then this is the convention you should try. They are not about the glitz and glamour, they are about the kids!

We attended Fluid in Sacramento last weekend, and we were disappointed in the judges. One of our dancers was awarded an Elite Dancer Award which is great, but I partially think it was just awarded to try to get us to return next year. We also received Platinum awards, but my issue is with the delivery of the critiques to the dancers from the judges. The judge Matthew was extremely rude, had a major ego, and seemed to not know how to deliver constructive criticism without being offensive. There were times where he wasn't even watching the dancer on stage but then when it was time to give feedback he would be taking the longest out of the 3 judges. I saw this happen to many dancers through the competition. He also seemed to act like he knew a lot about ballet but then did not use the correct terminology when making corrections. This was very confusing to our dancers who train extensively in ballet and were told by him to "take a ballet class", it was as if he forget these dancers had just competed the day before en pointe and won Platinum. Then, another judge didn't know anything about Ballet whatsoever and couldn't even give a single critique other than "I'd break my hip if I was in pointe shoes", ridiculous comments like this is not what we are paying for. We also believe there was major favoritism going on towards a particular studio. There was a time during feedback when he mentioned he personally was friends with this groups choreographer. I find this to be wildly inappropriate, even if you are friends with a choreographer you shouldn't be broadcasting it so everyone else knows. There was another woman who mentioned she was friends with a studio owner and then went on to praise them for about 3 mins. I just find this very strange and inappropriate to be happening at a competition coming from judges. Where is the impartiality that is expected of judges at this level? Lastly, the convention and competition was VERY small and the stage was poorly put together, extremely uneven, wobbly, and very dangerous for pointe work.

We are sorry to hear you did not have a positive experience. We would love to discuss your concerns further, please call us at 866-659-5554. Please be assured, our judges were not aware of the studios competing, nor have relationships with any studio who participated in the Sacramento event. Our Competitions are saved on Livestream to play back at anytime to affirm this is true. Along with our Elite Scholarship, each dancer awarded this certificate has been 100% earned by the Individual dancer. The studio name is not associated with any dancer during the audition, making the process as fair as possible. Your dancer earned this award. We go to great lengths in making sure every aspect of our event weekend is unbiased. In having over 30 participating studios and only six (6) studios receiving Elite Scholarships speaks for itself. Our Sacramento was sold out, we believe smaller class sizes where dancers are able to move and dance freely are imperative in executing our company mission. We look forward to speaking soon! Thank you, Fluid Dance

We attended Fluid Seattle in February. This was our 4th year in a row attending, and as usual it did not disappoint. This staff is so friendly and so talented. The teachers are so involved with the dancers and teaching. Our dancers learn so much every year and it's nice that the teachers are remembering our dancers with each attending year. There is always ample space for our dancers to learn, and we love that. Merchandise is great and the competition is fun! Looking forward to next year!!

We just attended the Seattle Fluid competition and convention. Our only regret is we didn't bring our whole team. We had a wonderful time. We received great feedback from judges and appreciate the warm and friendly atmosphere. It was refreshing for our kids to experience an event focused on making them better, but with support and praise provided! Wonderful event! Thanks Fluid for a great weekend.

Minneapolis Event Review. Fluid is a terrific convention from their teachers to their organization they excel in all fronts. As a studio owner I take great care in where I take my business to ensure the events and competitions are in line with my studio. Fluid is crystal clear in their communication, events are run smoothly, professionally, and of course they are fun! My dancers could not believe how much fun they were having! This is in large part to the incredible staff Fluid has on hand. The teachers are fun, challenging, and provide great feedback that my students can truly grow from. We tried the competition this year for a few soloists looking to get a practice run. The competition featured live feedback. WE LOVED IT. The staff gave great feedback, was unafraid to give constructive criticism but still kept it positive and uplifting for the dancer. Four years in a row and myself, my dancers, and dance moms have all been VERY IMPRESSED with FLUID and would highly recommend it.

My studio at the moment is 3 yrs old and we have been going to Fluid since day 1. Fluid sets the standard for what great conventions should be. They are extremely well communicated and timely with their responses. The staff is personable, approachable, and fun. My dancers always look forward to fluid and it will be a staple of our studios program for a long time to come.

We attended Fluid Seattle a few weeks ago. Love this convention! It's wonderful to be able to have our dancers in a bit smaller convention so the dancers are able to move and learn. The instructors are amazing. Our dancers learned a lot. Staff is super friendly. Great merchandise too. Competition was great and our dancers got great feedback! Can't wait till next year!

We have only done this competition once and it was a good experience. It was very small, but very well organized. I did like that the dancers were given their critiques and comments on stage after their performance. This was the only competition that I have been to that they did this and it was a great experience for my daughter.

Thank you for your feedback and so happy you and your daughter had such a great experience! I'm not sure what city you were in, but it does usually take a few years to build our market. Thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you again in that growing market this year!!

Fluid as such a great fit last year for our studio as it was in its first year. We returned again and were of course happy we did. What sets Fluid apart from the competition is a few things...1. their staff is great! Friendly, approachable, and well organized. 2. Their teachers are incredible and run classes that are so much fun my dancers still talk about them. They really have taught the kids a ton and each student has his or her favorite teacher they look forward to seeing next year. 3. They have reasonable class sizes that allow for dancers to actually dance and get some personalized attention from the teachers. Overall it is becoming clear that fluid is a convention staple of our studio and should be to yours as well. They have also added a competition with live feedback which we are excited to try next year!

By far our favorite experience yet. It\'s all about education, they applaud and encourage creativity, age appropriate choreography, music and costuming.Their immediate feedback to the dancers on stage is spot on and reaffirms the studio teachers notes. Inspiring classes where the kids get to explore concepts on technique and not just learn a combo. If you care about young dancers growth as performers and technitians Fluid is must. Professional, genuine and first class in every way. Amazing experience. Thank you Sarah!!!!
