Our favorite. Amazing organization, runs on time, and truly top notch staging and production. At this year's finals we had a wonderful time, well worth the experience. Lots of judges and very fair judging and plenty of fun activities for the dancers and the whole family.

It was an alright competition overall. I was disappointed that they ran 1 hour behind in both rooms. I found out when I went to check in a student and the stage manager questioned me why we were there so early. If anyone was announcing it into the dressing rooms, it wasn't getting to the back of the cafeteria which was the dressing room. The schedule made no sense. My 10 year old soloist ended up competing at 10:00pm, while my 19 year old soloist ended up competing at 5:00pm. The schedule was very spread out which gave plenty of time to relax between routines, but made for a really long weekend. The dressing rooms was difficult to get in and out of as it had a make shift entrance that you couldn't see if others were coming in or out. The large studio in the front ended up taking up so much room and left no pathway to get to the back of the room. The awards were good, but dragged on a bit. The judging was useless. They had very little comments (praises or critiques) with very low quality of the video. The stages were nice and most of the stage staff were friendly. My students seemed to enjoy themselves and did well, which is what is the most important. I would be willing to go back to see if it is any better this year, if this years schedule didn't conflict with gymnastic state meets, that some of my students are in.

We just returned from East Coast finals in Myrtle Beach. Showstoppers was truly amazing! Master classes were wonderful. I love that everyone seems so genuine at this competition.

I have gone to Showstoppers since they went to Spokane 30 some years ago. Now it is in Tacoma and the venue is not the best as there are not very many facilities surrounding the Tacoma Convention Center. I really enjoy Nan who runs that particular competition and it seems to go very smoothly. The dressing room needs to be bigger. I would like them to look into the Convention Center in Portland, Oregon as there are more hotels close to that convention center and many more places to eat and more things for families to do when not competing.

Attended the Battle Creek competition in March, and hands down the best competition. On time, awards were fair and moved along, and the whole atmosphere is exciting!! Trophies were awesome, especially the crystal ones. Would highly recommend this competition....

Hands down the pink gem on their trophies was my dancer's favorite. Fun competition. They played a portion of the winning routine during award announcement - which was great parents usually aren't able to watch every performance of the day,

its fun and the trophies are nice. Awards seemed to be appropriate for the most part based on the skill level of the dancer and the performance. It has not ran on time in the 2 years we have done it (over an hour)and they choose the worst venue. They choose one if the smallest and oldest local school auditoriums. There is no convention and the second stage is quite small. Dressing rooms were a free for all and chaotic. Also everyone qualifies for nationals it's a business who will happily take your money you must enter a regional but it does not matter how well you did there in order to move on to nationals so you can get a "national" title without even winning a regional. Go figure.

Not a bad competition, not a fan of the backstage crew- I like backstage staff to be interactive, and I don't feel like they do that here. But overall- we have an ok experience with Showstoppers.

Very disappointed in this competition. They had three different stages running at the same time and some dancers had to be on different stages at almost the same time. The weather delayed the comp on Fri. night but it was even more delayed when we waited 30 mins. For one studio to perform their last routine. Awards were delayed over an hour and didn't finish until after midnight and then they rudely pushed everyone out of the venue. Some of the dancers that were there until well after midnight were scheduled to dance at 7:45 the next morning. Then the same thing happened with teen solos the next day and there were no issues with weather. Awards were over an hour late. The scores were very inconsistent and I can't find an explanation anywhere. We had already quit going to convention and now we won't go to competition either. There were two other comps in the area this weekend we have other choices.
