NUVO

Jan 05 2022

Very crowded convention, scholarship and awards were only given to the kids who have been attending them since they were minis and studios who have been coming for years. If you are the only kid representing your studio at comp or convention - forget about placing or getting recognized. The same 3 or 4 studios placed in top 10 overall even though there were more deserving dancers but they brought the money so they were awarded. The teaching at the convention was challenging but good.

We love Nuvo! We've attended for several years, and always have good experiences there. The convention room can be crowded, but that's to be expected. I hope they keep the taped-off squares on the floors they used for COVID spacing; it was helpful.

Love Nuvo, but no refunds is pretty bad. Especially, when you sent out a pandering email to everyone saying, "next year you'll get a full refund if we cancel". Def expect better from BTF.

So our studio does not compete at this venue, thank God. I have REAL issues with their convention. There rooms are PACKED out! It’s obvious that they only care about the money. I observed all weekend. The staff has favorites that follow their convention. They know them by name and some are sudo famous already. The staff gives the majority of their attention to these students. The remainder of their attention goes to their helpers. They will sit and watch their assistants dance and praise them as the rest of the 400 kids get to look at their backs. But my favorite are the discussions some of the staff had. Telling dancers to be present which I agree with, but in the same sentence, don’t desire to be picked or noticed. Seems like an oxymoron. Show up and dance and have emotion on your face, but act like you don’t care. Please teach me how that one works.

We're a recreational studio with a new competition team, I signed us up for NUVO this spring and then stressed about it for months. I didn't think we would be able to keep up with the amazing talent that Break The Floor events bring in. My kids LOVED this convention and the feedback we got from the judges was TOP NOTCH. We will definitely be back. Side note- Will and Kenny gave 0 feedback in their judge critiques which was a bummer, but the stuff we got from Stacey, Denise and Anthony was plentiful and super helpful :).

Love Nuvo! We have been attending since the first year. Great classes and faculty. Top notch from Denise Wall, Travis Wall, Stacey Tookey, Anthony Morigerato , Ray Leeper and all of the talented faculty. We are a tap studio and love that Anthony Morigerato is part of this faculty. Great teacher, judge and mentor! Ray is a very accessible and a positive leader. Thank you for providing a positive learning experience with a fair and positive competition experience.

Can't say enough great things about Nuvo! We usually attend two of their regional events throughout the year, Omaha and Kansas City. They have great staff, a well run competition, fair judging with helpful critiques and the venues are always close and convenient. Class and faculty are top notch!! We have attended Nuvo ever since my daughter started competiting and each year we have wonderful experiences! 5 stars for sure!! They are our first competition of the year, which is coming up in Omaha, so we are excited!!!

Anthony Morigerato is one of the most talented, humble, and down to earth teachers/choreographers you will meet at any convention or comp out there! We will keep taking our studio back year after year as long as he's there. Our kids LOVE Nuvo!

This year we attended both NUVO Pittsburgh for the first time and returned to NUVO Buffalo, as we always do. We had two very different experiences. NUVO Pittsburgh was a great experience! The atmosphere was light and positive. The girls had a great time and the judging was very fair. NUVO Buffalo was a completely different story. The atmosphere at Buffalo was anything but positive and fun. Judging seemed unfair and biased, toward both studios and dance style. If it was the one style they were looking for, it didn't score well, no matter how ell the dancer danced. Jason should NOT be allowed to judge, EVER! His comments were rude and often on things out of the girls control, like choreography and costume choices or colors. I didn't pay over $100+ for him to tell a dancer that the blacks on their costume didn't match or the logo should be a different color. If he has choreography issues, they should be addressed through the teacher not the dancer! Will didn't even watch have the time and made a comment on a video about just joining in as he was shuffling through papers. This was about 45 seconds into the dance. Really?? His comments were few and far between. Girls liked the combos and workshop classes, but there seemed to be a lot of favoritism in Buffalo as well, which is unfortunate that the hard working dancers picked up on it. They don't seem to follow there own rules either. It says in their workshop rules that once you win a standout in one city, you are eligible to receive another one in a different city, during the same season. This seemed to apply to some students and not others. The girls left Pittsburgh feeling great about themselves and their skills but left Buffalo feeling defeated and having their confidence shattered. These are not professional dancers. They look up to you for positive encouragement and guidance, not rude and biased comments.

We absolutely love Nuvo and always attend 2-3 each year. We love how well organized they run their competition. The judges critiques are always very helpful and very fair. The convention is also the main highlight for my daughter. There is one instructor that she doesn't like and always enjoys the combos that are taught. It is definitely one of favorites for sure. Looking forward to seeing them again this next competition season!

NUVO is a Great Convention experience! We love taking class with Travis Wall and Mark Meismer and all the other amazing choreographers. Competition is tough and tends to favor male dancers and large studios but it's a great performance experience. Definitely attending again this year, convention makes up for competition. Only problem is that there's no parking available at the Miami Beach Venue. Venue is beautiful though with a lovely view of the ocean

Dearborn, MI. Hotel is not the greatest...competition location could be better...convention space is good. Schedule and convention are done well. Staff is great as always for Nuvo. Nothing be wonderful things to say about Anthony Morigerato! He could be the only staff/faculty member and I would drive for hours to have my kids attend. Seems like the awards are trying to make everyone happy...categories have 10 places...then you have 3-4 "ties" at each place...so instead of 10 awards you have 30...what?! Very odd...just have 10 place awards...stop giving everyone "awards" for participation.

Great convention loved the energy from the teachers. It was at a great venue rooms were nicely spread out so you couldn't hear the music from other rooms. Love all of the banners and lights it made the kids feel like they were a part of something huge. Great central location in Chicago away from the crowded downtown area but close if you wanted to go. My only complaint is my daughter did win a scholarship and he name was left off the list. Luckily one of the parents looked when we got home and noticed that she was on there. Other than that outstanding event, it's just it's exciting when you are there if your name is called Thank you be back next year!

First time attending and we were a bit shocked at the venue room prices, the crowdedness of the rooms (the seniors were in an L-shaped room that was so crowded they were tripping over each other) and the competition ran until midnight. We will give it another try, but will go for a different city this time. We love the faculty, so we are hoping it was just that location.

Nuvo was amazing! Staff is very friendly, instructors all did an amazing job from Nubies - Seniors. Love that they had a Nubie performance, selected scholarships and showcased dancers.

She was in love! Learned so much as well as got to watch amazing studios and peers. She is excited for this years again! It was during the Republican National Convention at the Gaylord Hotel and was a massive venue but was an awesome experience. The security was great, may have been upped from the convention, but I\'ll take it!!
