Fun, well organized all dance nationals in FEB each year! Their JUSTDANCE
events are geared for dance all star teams. Most of their other events are
geared towards cheer and will not have many dance teams if any.
Jamfest is really an allstar cheer competition which my daughter also does.
They are ok generally a competition we do first as a practice event before
we move onto the Varsity competitions.
JamFest is geared totally for cheerleaders. Attended a Jam Fest Lite Event
last year & we were the only studio there. We were against cheer gyms doing
dance routines. We had to perform on very thick cheer mats. They gave the
only choreography award to a cheer team which is fine but they should\'ve
had a dance choreography award as well. Received our judges sheets with the
comment \" need to work on your body spins\"??? What is a body spin? I
think they meant pirouette. The staff was nice & accommodating. Went onto
to compete at Jam Fest nationals were one of my teams that competed the
same routine at Jam Fest Lite received a point deduction for the routine
being 3 seconds to long. If I had received a penalty at Jam Fest Lite I
would\'ve changed it. It should\'ve been caught at that first event.
The national event itself was fun & they kids did well but it was way
overpriced! We paid $175 per dancer to compete 2 routines for one day only!
Plus $30 for Athlete ID! Dance studios should avoid jam fest!
We used to attend Jamfest events all the time when my daughter danced for
an All Star team. Their events were well planned and fun! Dance nationals
always attracted some great teams and seemed fairly judged. Only critique
is that it would have been nice if there were Master Classes appropriate
for some of the younger dances- sometimes they were geared just for the
