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.

I am so sorry that you had such a negative experience. We work very hard to make sure everything is running on time and scored correctly. I sincerely apologize that this was not your experience. If you have time, I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you directly so that we can find a way to make it up to you.

Really the best run dance event! One of the few that seems to truly execute fair judging and rewards age appropriateness. They don't start during school hours which is a total deal-breaker for or studio. Well organized and the staff is positive, amazing hi-tech backgrounds and a very positive and encouraging environment with awesome trophies. We go every year and are going to Nationals this year. Very excited!

Showstopper is always our favorite! Our studio has attended for the last 8 years. We have always come home with critiques from the judges that have been useful to our teachers. The audio and staging is best I have ever seen at a competition. The awards ceremony is quick, exciting and fun! The venues we have been to are large with wonderful dressing areas. I can’t wait to go back to a Showstopper competition!

More then disappointed with Showstopper. We have been doing this competition for more than 13 years. Backstage was not ran smooth at all, they were rude and pushy. Our dancers were told they would not wait on them while they were doing a quick costume change! The award ceremony was long & they announced and had every single act it seemed like line up. As far as the scoring went it was very sporadic. I've never seen anything quite like it.

Overall slightly disappointed with our experience at Showstopper this weekend. With no stage manager, backstage has hectic and unorganized with scheduling issues. The awards were rushed and no judges/special awards were given. The judges also were conversing and laughing with each other during our performance. Very unprofessional. We love, love, love Showstopper Convention but sadly cannot say the same of their competition.

Showstopper & Starpower are the best competitions out there. We love That showstopper does top 10 for overalls because most competitions well do a top 3 out of 8 and that to me just isn't right. The overall winner gets to see their dance on a screen. The personnel is just a awesome!!! The convention is awesome! We love it!

Absolutely the best run dance event of any we have attended through the past many years! One of the few that seems to truly execute fair judging and reward age appropriateness. It is well organized and the staff is wonderful. A positive encouraging environment with awesome trophies, staging, great merchandise (never a rip off, always a great value!) and all the extras. Their attention to details to make the experience wonderful for teachers and dancers is quite incredible. We will go back every year.
