We attended IEX this past fall for the first time and will recommend it above other conventions we attend. As much as we love the convention experience in general for the construction of our dancers’ technique and the target of their character, we feel like IEX has a special touch with Meredith’s warm and deeply thoughtful guidance.
We are a small studio but have never been made to feel small at BravO! competitions (which we include in our yearly circuit because of Meredith’s hospitality) and the experience was the same at IEX.
Our students felt recognized for their strengths and hard work, and that was the perfect springboard for starting our season!
Money and time well-invested in teachers who were inspiring to our students not only as dancers but as world citizens too.
Looking forward to many returns ❤️
This was my first time attending Immerse. I only brought a handful of students just to try out the convention. But when I got there, I wish I had brought my whole team. This convention exceeded all of my expectations.
First off, I cannot say enough about the owner, Meredith. Not only was the lady the one answering the phone when I had questions regarding my registration, but she gave me her personal cell number and made herself available for any questions that may arise in the future. And then to get to the convention, it was quite pleasant to have Meredith actually the one running check in. This was great to be able to put a face to the person I had been talking to for a while. Half the time you go to conventions or competitions, you never meet the director, let alone the owner. Very nice.
The teaching staff was hands down one of the best I have ever seen at a convention. It was not about LET'S LEARN A COMBO and leave. It was so about technique and understanding not just how to do it, but why you do certain things. And if you do a step a certain way, the repercussions as well. This staff was so knowledgeable it was insane.
The merchandise was top notch. As a male teacher, I always want more and more sweatpants and never can because they're always for females or they have no pockets. Very refreshing to see they were unisex with pockets. I know that's kinda dumb, but I loved seeing this! Reasonably priced and many different options too.
Overall this is a 10 out of 10 Convention and will definitely be returning for the 2023 Dance Season.
This was the first convention my daughter came home from wanting to go right back. She had an incredible time and from the small clip I saw the instructors CARE about these dancers.
Amazing from start of the registration process to the end of the closing show this event is a step above. Meredith alone makes this convention like no other with a personal touch and a you matter attitude.
Immerse Artists Experience is an amazing convention! My daughter absolutely loved all of the incredible staff. Everyone is so caring and compassionate. Meredith Pennington puts on a great workshop! We will definitely be returning again, and again, and again!
IAX was an incredible convention experience for our dancers! Each dancer feels valued and as if they are the only dancer in the room. The faculty is top notch! We can't wait to return again next season!
My girls love this convention! It is so positive and the teachers praise the effort as much as they praise the skill level. I have a Junior dancer and a Senior dancer. Both girls enjoy this event and feel like they learn so much from it. My senior took pages of notes and take aways in her dance journal. They don’t just learn combos. They really learn life lessons about accepting who you are as a dancer and acknowledging where you are as a dancer and where you want to be. This is one of our favorite conventions and it packs a whole lot of punch in one day! They did a great job keeping the students safe during this pandemic and all of the staff was super helpful! We ❤️ IAX
There is no other convention experience that can compare to IAX! Each dancer is seen as a valued artist. Dancers are not just taught a combo, but are taught technique, performance and how to become a better person in the process. The room is filled with positive energy, happy hearts and dancers excitement for what is coming next. The dance world can often become so competitive dancers fail to acknowledge or appreciate their peers talent and originality but not at Immerse. The atmosphere is pure gratitude for everyone no matter level, age or experience level. The quality of instruction it THE BEST you will ever find! My daughter has been anticipating this season all year and we cannot wait for many seasons to come 💙 Meredith, you have poured your entire heart and soul into creating something so special, thank you!!!
Loved IAX!! The classes were wonderful, very informative and worth it! My daughter had a wonderful experience and looking forward to next year already.
My daughter attended this Amazing Convention and enjoyed every minute with all of the amazing staff and instructors who were so helpful and truly professional!! As a parent, I was so impressed and pleased to witness so much positivity and hear all the powerful messages that was given by all the instructors as they taught these dancers in every class! She learned so much in every dance class she attended and so grateful she had the opportunity to dance and learn from such an amazingly talented group of Instructors! Thank you all for giving my daughter and these dancers such a rewarding and memorable experience! See you all again soon and keep up the GREAT WORK!! BEST CONVENTION YET!
This convention really is so unique! It is unlike anything I have attended in the past. I honestly feel like me and my teammates walked away from each class with so much knowledge, and we had so much fun while doing it!!!!!
I can’t say enough amazing things about this convention. My daughter and her friends had the best time learning from the most incredible faculty!! It’s such a unique combination of classes and I felt the kids left there with so much more knowledge. We are actually planning to attend a second one this season. I highly recommend this convention!!!
This event is one of a kind. My dancers & staff had a blast Sunday. Thankful Memphis was on the tour!! The staff of IAX is fabulous, my students were so complementary of all their classes & teachers. They loved the technique classes, the positivity & encouragement that the staff instilled. This was our first convention of this season & it was the perfect way to begin 2019-20. Don’t miss this one if it’s even remotely close to you. Congrats MP!!!💜💜💜
Honestly, NOTHING like anything we have been to. The teachers were so knowledgable and all the kids left feeling like they learned so much more than just a combination. They were so inspired! They loved every minute of the convention! We will definitely be doing this one again!
LOVE this convention! Teachers were ALL about the students and the environment was safe and encouraging and inclusive to ALL dancers. Our kids absolutely loved every class! The education and care the teachers each brought into the room were amazing. Love love love and cannot wait to come back!
Wonderful convention!!! Love the Positivity!!! Love Meredith!!!
My daughter really enjoyed her immerse experience this year and is looking forward to next years convention
