HALL OF FAME DANCE CHALLENGE

Apr 09 2019

Hall of Fame is one of the best in the business. They truly set the standard for a great competition experience. My studio is a smaller studio competing against some of the giants in our area. The judging and placement is fair and honest with great critiques given from the judging staff. The HOF staff itself is fun, engaging, and helpful. These are long weekends for competition staff too but you'd never know at HOF as the staff is on-point all weekend long. Ricci does an incredible award show and it's by far the students favorite. All around a great professionally run competition. Highly recommended.

We have been to Hall of Fame in Worcerster for several years now and always have a pleasant experience. Very welcoming staff and great energy. The award ceremonies are always geared toward the dancers and are clearly designed to make sure they are having fun. The Emcee in Worcester was the best! This competition in addition has some of the nicest merchandise. Only complaint is the collapsible stage. Lots of competitions use them and We have never had issues with them in the past. But at this particular event the tape on the stage made it very difficult to turn.

Studios Just Be Prepared: This competition is very popular so it fills up and a lot of time they end up having 4-5 day events, which is crazy when parents work and students are in school and some of us have to travel hours to attend. I would personally say it is geared towards larger studios in the larger cities as that is how it seemed when we attended. I did feel at our event the judging was all over the place. Dances (including some of our own) were placing that we wouldn't had expected to place and much better routines (from every studio) weren't getting nearly high enough. The staff was nice but I hate when I pay good money for an event and favoritism is shown to studios they already know instead of them taking the time to step out and make the newer studios feel welcomed. I hope they will work on that after seeing my post. The videoing and photography is top notch, so kudos to them on that. I also thought the teacher room was a nice touch and I know so many thought the alcohol provided was great, but lets be more realistic, a dance competition with kids involved is not really the time and place for that.

Hands down, the best competition by far. The competition truly is the best of the best and brings in the highest caliber of competition every year (St. Paul, MN). The scoring is always spot on. The awards ceremony is always fun and upbeat and the announcer is so full of energy and keeps the awards moving. This competition always runs early, which is a perk when you've been there from Wednesday-Sunday. They value all genres of dance, which is often not the case with many competitions. The only thing that I do not necessarily like is that the scoring is lower for platinums in the intermediate and novice categories and that potentially convinces people to level down. I wish they were all 285+ for platinum. I do like, however, that advanced (American) has the opportunity for a grand slam, which are few and far between, but it's exciting and meaningful to receive one.

Our studio went to HOF regional and national regularly. I like their settings, especially the national competition. Judge are fair most of times. But I have two problems with the event. The first problem is that their acoustic quality is very very very bad (we attended Atlanta event)! We have attended many dance competitions and the acoustic quality of this event is much much worse than any other events. We have been to Atlanta for last few years. We have never been able to hear music clearly. I first thought it could be the problem of the hall. However, this year they moved to a new venue. The sound effect is equally bad or even worse. Some times I could not hear what the staff said at all in the award ceremony. I think they need to upgrade or have some one tune their audio system better. The second problem is that their awards are very cheap. They give very tiny plaques for ADJUDICATION awards, even for grand slam. While other competitions give much more attractive awards. Top overall scorers just got a piece of paper (coupon) of $200 discount for one of their summer event. Only first place got a slightly better plaque. My daughter was quite disappointed for that.

Love this Comp! It\'s always one of our studio favorites, and it\'s always such a fun/professional experience. Awards are fun and they do a great job of making the dancers feel special, but also moving things along. Back stage managers are awesome and helpful, and the judges give great critiques.

Could not figure out how they were scoring. There were some routines that deserved a platinum and scored such. There were some routines that were high gold that scored a high gold. But there were many, many platinum awards given out to routines with so many technique issues, and quite a few high golds given out that were better than over half the platinum awards. The comments given at the regional level were non-existent. One judge literally just said \"pretty\" throughout the whole routine, with no corrections, while there were absolutely no comments from the other two judges. The performance got a high gold, why? High Gold at the nationals, the dancers will never know why they got the score they did and what needs improvement. As with the regional competition, the national competition had one studio that had \"elite\" on some of the jackets, but not on all. One girl danced all day from that studio and did her solo at the National level, then danced another day (all day) at the American level. All the routines scored a platinum despite problems. The judges knew the kids and some of the parents by first name. I find that the saddest of sad commentary, right along with lack of constructive comments. Hoping the studio owner never returns to this competition.

It is certainly unfortunate that you did not enjoy Nationals, especially since our feedback has been positive from studio directors who attended. As you did in your review of us from regionals, you are focusing on the fact that a studio had Elite listed on their jackets; however, since level placement is not based on what’s listed on someone’s jacket, this is an irrelevant detail. We do know that critiques are an important part of the competition experience, so if your studio director wants to contact us to discuss the lack of comments on critiques (which is not acceptable, and certainly not the norm for us), please have him or her do so. We would love to review the critiques in question so that we can address it with the appropriate judges. We also want to be clear that none of our judges knew any of the children, except in the context of possibly judging them at a previous competition, and they certainly did not know the parents by name. Again, if your studio director has specific concerns that they would like to speak with us about, please have them email us at info@halloffamedance.com.

We were quite surprised by this review based on the overwhelming positive feedback we received after the incredible Sandusky Nationals. If you would like to share more details about why you didn’t have the best experience, please email us at info@halloffamedance.com. Thank you for noting our professionalism, and thank you for attending our truly amazing Sandusky Nationals.

Not impressed. Many elite dancers dancing many routines, so that you know they are always at the studio, dancing national/secondary. Many even had \"elite\" on their jackets. Was very confused with the scoring as well. Lots of technique issues with routines that still scored high (really high). Dancers on the outsides seemingly could be doing anything they wanted, whose performance wasn\'t included in the overall performance score.

Thank you for your comments. Placement in levels is not based on what labels are placed on jackets. Many studios define their competitive teams as \"elite,\" regardless of which level they are in. We\'re very proud of an event that was fun, organized, and professional and proud that so many studios were thrilled with our Detroit event. We are sorry you don\'t feel the same way. Thanks again for your comments.

This was a great competition and a ton of fun. My kids really enjoyed themselves. The photos were beautiful! For anyone planning to attend this comp, you should know it runs really far ahead. Many times this weekend we were 1.5 hours ahead. But if you know this going in you can be prepared. An area for improvement would be the venue. Our studio has attended various comps there and it is a difficult place to have a competition. The dressing rooms are tiny, they do not allow you to bring in food for your dancers, and the space is really tight. I can only imagine how great this comp would be at the Minneapolis Convention Center. There is way more space and the opportunity for multiple stages. I know Hall of Fame St. Paul is huge but I bet Minneapolis could be just as large if it were at the convention center Just a thought. Thanks for a great weekend!

We are glad that you had fun at our Minneapolis event! Thank you for noting the quality of our photographs, and we\'re so glad that you enjoyed them. Also, thank you for the feedback on the venue. This is something we will take into consideration as we book future seasons in Minneapolis. We love being in Minnesota, so thank you again for sharing the weekend with us!

It was a fun weekend! Host/announcer made the pre-awards stage time fun for everyone. Kids enjoyed the light sticks that were passed out. Room for improvement on changing rooms - the venue has plenty of space we have been there for other competitions. All studios need an assigned space no matter how big or small. Only studios were assigned space and the rest left to figure it out for themselves. The she show runs smoothly and at times up to 90 minutes AHEAD of schedule. This can make things stressful. The planned schedule could be planned better since this seems like a trend across the board.

Love that they offer food at this one, especially the mini donuts. I wish they would run a bit more on time though, but they tend to do a good job for the most part. Changing rooms could use some help, but we bring a tent and can set up pretty much wherever.

MANY positives! The judging was VERY fair! Many different styles of dance represented in the overalls! That was so nice to see!! The levels of competition are fair and the studios placed their dances really well at this competition! Live stream is amazing! I really would love to give it five stars but there were a couple of issues. The dressing room situation on group day was horrible! You literally could NOT move in the dressing room. Rooms became available later, but once you are all set up for the day it\'s such a huge hassle to move everything. And they ran waaaaay tooooooo early. I think an event that runs over an hour ahead could have been better planned from the start. Being way early stresses everyone out! Getting ready in a shortened amount of time, interferes with other plans for the day and causes people to MISS their kids (grandkids, friends, etc.) dances. There has to be a better formula for planning the day(s)!

We\'re so glad you love the live stream. As far as \"running late\" is concerned, we\'d like to clarify that our shows are always on-time or early, and we never run behind or late. However, our shows are often quite large. We work hard to create a schedule that makes sense considering the size of our show, and we ended on time or earlier at all 2015 shows, regardless of size. Thanks for your feedback, and we hope to see you this season.

Our studio attends every year and this is by far the favorite of both dancer and mom. Very well organized from start to finish. As another reviewer noted, I\'ve also found the music low. It\'s obviously fine for the dancers, as they\'ve never complained, so just figured it was my taste for very loud music.
