This is a beautiful, well run competition! The stage lighting and sets are incredible and the truly professional videography is cinematic!!! They've got great vendors with reasonably priced gear and gorgeous trophies. Competition runs on time and was often ahead of schedule. Judging was on target and appreciated the heart and abilities of each dancer and the attributes they offer even though the range of abilities varied greatly. Positive experience for our team!
We just attended the convention for the 2nd year in a row in Biloxi MS. This year didnt seem quite as good as last year. We didnt receive a bag, this year it was for purchase only. This year seemed a little less enthusiastic too. There were rainstorms and flooding forecasted the second day of convention so we opted to sit it out.
Great comp. I prefer conventions and wish this was one. Only issue os studios misplacing their dancers. This should be discouraged but no one says anything. Not fair for the true recreational dancer to compete against somene dancing 20plus hrs/wk but one studio clearly does this and gets away with it every year.
Our girls LOVE Showstopper competitions and so do the parents!!! This company is top-notch at being positive, welcoming, and supportive of all of the dancers! They truly make you feel that you have improved yourself as a dancer by offering positive comments and feedback. Always a fabulous experience!!! :)
