Thank you for such a great experience! We were in Trumbull so I was weary of the staging but realized it was great for my new students to get used to something different and my parents LOVED the hotel atmosphere. After seeing that you gave out limited platinums, I was already happy but the judges’ comments put you guys first in my book. They were extremely helpful and detailed. Focused on teaching methods, technique, and performance and I truly appreciate the detailed comments that the judges left for me. Thank you very much!!!

We love the positive environment and fair judging. Also, love that categories are spread out. It takes the pressure off the kids not knowing who they are up against.

Overall, this National was the “Best” experience for my school so far! We loved the balance of comp time vs. family time. Families felt it was a great balance!

I just want to thank you for an excellent experience this weekend. I am a huge believer in fair judging as well as dances that have both appropriate material and costuming. It was all great. My students enjoyed themselves, the dressing rooms were close and spacious and the staff by far with the nicest I have encountered in 5 years. Look forward to participating again!
