IN10SITY DANCE

May 08 2021

We do really like this competition a lot! Was a bit different this year and I hate block scheduling (not the comp’s fault). Had a good experience, but I do wonder if block scheduling affects scoring at all??? Not saying my child should have been in the top 10, however she was better than half of the top 10 they chose, which just makes me Wonder if whoever goes in the first block tend to not score as well as those that go later 🤷‍♀️. I don’t know, just a thought. But, overall we do like this comp and hope the season can be normal next year.

This competition is so great!!! The staff is very friendly. The host is just so sweet and encouraging to the dancers. Love the improv. Love the special awards and also how they acknowledge the top 5 highest average scoring studios. It was a positive experience here. Looking forward to next season.

We have always enjoyed In10sity when we have had the opportunity to attend! I wish they would come back to Ames. The competition itself runs smoothly and from what I remember, usually ahead of schedule. The judging I felt was always fair the the critiques given were helpful. We like this event because it comes close to us, so its very convenient. We will always try to attend if it works out with our schedule.

We attended this event a few weeks ago and had a great time. It ran smoothly and on time. Love how they offer live feed so others could watch from home. Also really like the media pack for a small extra fee, although they cut off the end of one of my daughter's solos :-). The emcee lady is just the nicest lady. She is so positive and encouraging and gives the dancers a very nice talk. Love the improv. The special awards are great! The judging was ok. They gave a lot of feedback but just so many of the same critiques over and over where half the time we couldn't really tell why they were giving them, but it was fine. They tend to score on the lower side in comparison with other comps, but we were pleased with scores and how they have improved with each year. Overall we really like this event and we look forward to attending next year.

Although we really liked the media fee and the staff was friendly at check-in we had some issues with this competition. First, there weren't enough dressing rooms - or I should say dressing areas for all who attended. We are a smaller studio, and since we didn't get there at the beginning of the competition to stake our claim for space enough for all of us, we had to split our group in two and have two very small spaces. This became a problem when we had a very quick change for our musical theater piece. My competition director said in 20 years of dancing at competitions and teaching dancers who competed she'd never seen one not choose to go forward in the order of dances to accommodate the audience and performers. Instead they just held the stage - that's right - there was dead stage b/c we weren't ready. She had been snippy when she came to get the dancers. I told her we'd get there when we were ready, and she said, "well there's one dance then you, so...." It was unnecessary - we were trying our best to get them ready, and she was the stage manager (not much managing). Also - the awards ceremonies were so long winded - they seemed to last forever. Judging was tough, since the voices and video were not synced. I don't think we'll be returning.

We have always had a good experience with In10sity. It is not one of our studios required competitions, but if it works out, my daughter always likes to attend. We feel the judges are fair and their critiques helpful. They travel very close to where we live, so its very convenient for us. It's too bad it doesn't receive better reviews because we have always enjoyed attending. Hopefully it works out to attend again this year!!

There was good and bad with this competition. After going to and participating in many different competitions since 1985 I always try to have an open mind. I enjoyed the improv competition and makes you guys different then others (even though you guys do favor boys in this and was obvious to the entire audience). I also enjoyed the personal judges awards given out. It's nice to hear directly from them. Director was very sweet and truly cared and the live feed is great. Now onto the bad. 1. The schedule should be posted online for the parents to see. This is one of the very few competitions that only give the studio directors the schedule. As parents we deserve a right to view the schedule the same time as the directors as we are the ones that are paying you. In may we have proms, graduations, etc and finding out asap is important. Unfortunately leaving it up to the director to give out doesn't always give us enough time to figure out plans. 2. You need more strict rules concerning the levels of competitions (elite, premier, debut). All the other comps either determine it by hours of Dance per week or they say that if a judge feels they are in a lower level then they should...they deserve the right to move them. You clearly had elite dancers competing in the premier level just to get an "easy" win. Since you give out cash on stage, this makes more people want to lie about their level so they get that cash. You making the rules on levels basically up to the teachers discretion is wrong. Your judges should know by watching if they aren't in the right level and they should be able to move them. You had girls who competed in both the elite and premier groups (majority of their dances were elite level) but solo was premier. So if they are in 2 different levels for groups, the level should go by the level of the majority of groups they are in. This was a huge issue for many parents to see girls with their legs behind their heads, doing 5 turns, and overextended jumps in the premier level. 3. I'd prefer more awards ceremonies instead of piling all the kids on stage for only a few awards. And make sure the live feed shows the awards ceremony. All but the last awards ceremony was just sound and no video. Plus was very hard to hear awards over the music playing. I hope you take this review and improve for next year. If our studio chooses to compete with you next year, I don't feel comfortable having my child compete her solo if the rules on levels aren't like every other competition out there

We attended their Seattle event last weekend. The event ran ahead of schedule, which was nice to be able to get out of their earlier than expected. REally loved the emcee. She spoke clearly, not too fast and she was so nice! Love how they give out special awards. Our girls really enjoyed their improv. This is an optional competition for us, so with only taking a few solos, I was worried about catering to the bigger studios. I was so pleasantly surprised that this did not happen!!! Judges are tougher here than most other competitions. It is very hard to get a platinum, but I was thrilled that my daughter did receive a platinum!!! Love how they give out scholarships for entry fees to the entire top 10, then a free entry solo fee plus a cash prize to the 1st place winner in each level, not just competitive. That is very much appreciated that they recognize all levels, not just competitive, so thank you for that! We look forward to using that scholarship next year. Thanks for a great weekend! Love too how they offer livestream. It definitely worked better this year than last, however i don't know if this is something in10sity could fix, or if it was the livestream, but there was constantly background music playing over the competition songs and over people speaking ion stage during awards. That is my only small complaint.

This was my least favorite competition last year! They judging was all over the place and I watched back the video and saw a judge get out of her seat, go over to the other judges, point at my daughter, shake her head no. The other judges threw a paper away. Could it be nothing, sure but after seeing the judging all over, it just looked suspicious.

Once they had our money, communication spiraled downhill. Staff was indifferent to rude. The stage was sticky. For the money we paid, we should have had judges with better credentials. One judge gave a teen boy a special award for being anatomically pleasing. One of the most poorly organized competitions I have ever witnessed. Our studio will not return.

We attended the Seattle event this weekend. We only entered 4 solos. I was hesitant because the reviews aren\'t great, but I was pleasantly surprised. The owner is great. Always looking for ways to improve. He gave a nice speech at awards. The staff was very friendly. They did give out lots of special awards. Ceremony ran smoothly, as did the competition. A few gripes is that it was a very large competition. I wish some would cap it off at a lower #as others do.while I know the comp can\'t know how many hours a dancer dancers, I wish something could be done when a studio places their dancers a level lower than they should be. There were definitely some dancers that should have been in the competitive level.judges seemed very nice and for the most part fair, but we\'ve been attending comps where platinums start at 280-283 and receiving platinums, then here they start at 264, and earn high golds. I also noticed a lot of boy favoritism this weekend as well. I know judges like to encourage boys to continue dancing, but at some point judging should be based solely on dancing/performance and not gender. Overall, though, our girls had fun and everything ran smoothly and everyone was friendly.

We were hesitant to return to In10sity after they had some major scheduling dilemmas which delayed things a lot last year.... However, with a change of venue and a smaller competition, we dared to go back with a solo and a duet. We found it to be vastly improved from last year! The staff was friendly and helpful, the new venue was great and the size of the competition was perfect! The award plaques are better than last year\'s (no more rubber bracelets, please!) My girls love the improv challenge! I would love to go back next year, as long as it doesn\'t get too big to manage and schedule. Way to improve, In10sity!

First time attending this comp was an absolute disaster from music to scheduling to awards. I chalked this up to a last minute venue change, although that was due to organizers not confirming the condition of the original. Conditions at new venue was NOT safe for studios competing acro. Last year. Slightly better venue. scheduling, music, stage condition, etc. still a disaster. Positives. The owner is fantastic and his philosophy and kindness is an excellent example. Judging is extremely tough, yet very fair. Although dreading the return this year, I\'m holding out hope things will get better. PLEASE. side note: cheap rubber bracelets as awards have got to go. I will no longer allow my daughter to enter their improv competition. The winner of the youngest age group was basically pole dancing while the family was yelling \"grind it girl\" from the audience. Still have no words for this.

Although this was a small competition in comparison to others we attended, the format was great. The in10nse improv competition was a nice surprise and there were lots of cash prize opportunities. The only downside is that dancers winning a scholarship to attend an in10sive have very limited location/date options. Other than that, this was a great comp!

We loved In10sity competition. The people were very friendly and accommodating to numbers that had quick changes. We loved the different category opportunities to place in and the improve is fun, but typically if a boy is in it they will pick them no matter how below par they dance. We did like that they streamed the competition live so that others could watch from home. We will go back again.

I am a third generation studio owner. I have been competeting for over 30 years. This is hands down one of the best competitions I have ever attended. I\'ve seen the reviews below and the complaints on scheduling or music sound like isolated situations. What really sets this competition apart is the quality of judging and the feedback received on the critiques. The judges knowledge and corrections are by far the best in the industry. The parents at my studio feel that they receive every dollars worth in feedback. The staff\'s passion is felt from everyone. This is the only competition that I come back to year after year. They also give away judges awards, in10nse challenge and scholarships. Our favorite part of the competition is the improv segment. Five stars for sure!
