CELEBRITY DANCE COMPETITIONS

Oct 17 2021

Just got home from the convention and have to say the convention was a NIGHTMARE! The checkin took 4ever! Line was all the way down the hotel and took us 1hr to get through registration. Then when we got to registration they ran out of the CONVNETION BOOK/schedule. The schedule is hard to read: not all parents can read size 4 font printed on a dark purple and dark blue background! COME ON! I had to take a picture with my phone and blow it up. Part of the convention price includes lunch and Sunday's lunch did not include any protein! The convention itself - the only one we have been too where it’s encouraged that you push your way to the front to be seen. Only one teacher walked around the room to see all the dancers. We all know those dancers that push their way to the front, just to be seen. Well at Celebrity, if your dancer actually stays at the back so they have room to move they will in no way be seen or have a chance at getting called out! Witnessed it first hand. Saw some amazing dancers in the back of the room not one was called out. The same dancers, over and over in the front only were called out! Unless your dancer is pushy and doesn’t care about dance space, please avoid this convention! I hope our studio does not go back!

We are so sorry to hear about your experience! We have not heard these sentiments from anyone else, but we definitely appreciate your feedback! Regarding Celebrity Check-in: We offer multiple time windows, throughout the weekend, for dancers to check-in. Unfortunately, our computer system did go down one time that weekend. With many dancers checking in at once, the technical difficulty set us back. We worked diligently to get it back up and running, and dancers through the line as quickly as we were able, while trying to keep everyone's spirits up! Regarding the Celebrity Souvenir Program: Celebrity Convention Programs are complimentary. All information in the Celebrity Program is emailed out in the Welcome Packet, for anyone with a Celebrity Online Account. Alternatively, all program information, including faculty bios, the schedule, and more can be found online. Our half page programs help cut down on the amount of paper used to produce complimentary programs, for hundreds of dancers, at every Celebrity Convention. If you view the program online, not only do you help Celebrity save on paper, but you can magnify the program to a size suitable for you. While some of our stock was misplaced by hotel staff for about 15 minutes, they were recovered and we had them available the rest of the weekend. We also had Celebrity Crew Members walk around the venue, and pass out programs to any dancer who looked like they didn’t get one during that time. We are sorry that you were inconvenienced by both of those hiccups. Regarding Celebrity Lunches: Lunches are included in the dancer’s convention pass. Even with lunches included, Celebrity Dance is often comparable or lower in cost to other dance conventions. While we aim to satisfy everyone, we are unable to satisfy all preferences and dietary restrictions. After meeting with a child nutritionist, and after receiving many requests for vegetarian options, we made the decision to provide a lunch with meat one day, and without meat on another. The menu at Celebrity Conventions varies slightly from event to event, based on the hotel’s options. A typical menu consists of a child-friendly entrée, a fruit or vegetable side dish, a dessert, and basic beverages. On our website, we encourage dancers to bring snacks and other food options if they have dietary restrictions or special requests. Regarding our Celebrity Faculty: Due to the current pandemic, it has been recommended that our faculty members practice social distancing. For some teachers, their comfortability may be staying a bit more distanced than others. At Celebrity, we try to honor everyone’s individual choices. While this practice is not common under normal circumstances, or what we would prefer to do, it is a measure that helps keep our faculty healthy for future events. Even with those recommendations, we still have plenty of Celebrity Paparazzi footage of our faculty members engaging with the students in various manners. From walking through the rooms, to giving direct feedback, to calling out dancers for examples. In the past, our faculty has encouraged dancers to move about the room, change places, come to the front if they’ve been in the back, etc. All of our teachers are vetted, selected for their character (of course, in addition to their teaching ability), and we can assure you, they all have the dancer’s best interests at heart. If you have any specific comments, on any of our faculty members, please feel free to email celebrity@dancecelebrity.com so we can address your concerns appropriately. Our goal at Celebrity Dance is to help make every dancer feel like the Celebrity they are! We hope your dancer found some enjoyment in our incredible lineup of teachers, the free Celebrity Souvenir t-shirt they received, the complimentary photos & videos for all solos, the Celebrity Show, the included lunched, the Celebrity energy and spirit, and all of the other special touches that help set Celebrity apart from the rest! We hope you’ll give us another shot in the future, and we wish you and your dancer the best of luck in your future dance endeavors!

This was my first convention as a parent, and my daughter's first convention as a dancer (Minneapolis). She was in the Junior's room and we have nothing but good things to say about the weekend! The routines that the teachers taught were perfect for the age group and skill level, the teachers themselves were amazing, staff was great, we loved the setup of the venue, and as a cherry on top - my daughter won a partial scholarship for next year's convention! Thank you Celebrity for an amazing weekend and we can't wait to come back next year!

Very well run and efficient competition. There is no reason to be concerned about COVID, because Celebrity has very large and clean dressing rooms. The stage is cleaned after so much time is passed - even if it is during your studio's dance block. Also, the check in system is organized! Truly, the entire competition is well organized - videos are posted when they say they will be posted and so are the awards ceremonies. Celebrity is very professional... so sure you will not be disappointed! :)

This was our first time attending a Celebrity Dance Competition and it did not disappoint!! Our dancers, parents and teachers had a blast. They were so well organized and efficient! The block scheduling, due to the social distancing requirements, was a dream. We cannot wait to attend another Celebrity event!

Celebrity always does it right; even with new rules and regulations, they went above and beyond to make the dancers and faculty feel comfortable and special during their event. I appreciate that they genuinely take the time to have conversations with the teacher and dancers, and they never skimp out on handing tangible awards for our performers. I know that's not the main goal of a competition, but it's nice for dancers to walk away with something after such a challenging year. Thank you, Celebrity, for being a very well-run competition with fantastic leadership, staff, and judges. We appreciate you so very much!

My daughter danced in the San Antonio competition this past weekend with Juleigh Holley’s School of Dance. This was our first time at a Celebrity Competition and it was a great experience! We loved how the staff greeted us and showed us where to go, professionalism of the competition, and having access to critiques and photos so soon after the event. Thank you for all your hard work that allows our kids to continue doing what they love in these weird times.

My husband and I were so impressed with how organized and thoughtful the Celebrity staff, faculty, and crew were with handling a convention during this pandemic. They put a lot of work and effort into making the weekend safe and fun! Our 3 kids had a blast and felt a bit more “normal” again because they got to do what they love...Dance! Well done Celebrity Dance!!!

Celebrity is such a humbling, invested, exciting, and welcoming competition. At each event, they are very on top of everything in order to make sure that everyone has a great and organized experience. At all of the conventions and competitions that Celebrity hosts, they teach you not only about dance and furthering a dancer’s artistry, but also growing yourself as a person! The venues and run of things always go so smoothly and their communication is incredible. Such a beautiful environment that they give to everyone who attends.

Every Celebrity event is so fun and I always feel so welcomed! While at Celebrity Conventions I learn so much to help further my knowledge of dance, but also I learn a lot to help further my growth as a human. The weekends I spend at Celebrity’s events are always super fun filled and knowledgeable. The whole Celebrity staff will make you feel welcomed and like a celebrity!

I can truly say that I have only had the best quality experiences at Celebrity events. At convention, the energy is so inspiring and every dancer leaves stronger than before. At competition, all studios are supportive, the event always runs on time, and the judging panel is top tier. Celebrity truly is a family and no matter what event you go to, you are treated like a Celebrity!!

Celebrity is a true family when you talk about the faculty. They truly care for the dancers and want the best for them. They do not just teach dance, they teach real lessons and give great advice about so many subjects. Once you go Celebrity you never go back.

My studio recently attended our rescheduled regional event due to COVID-19. The Celebrity Team ran an event that would pass a white glove test in the middle of a pandemic and I applaud all involved. The preparedness, attention to detail and exemplary customer service of the Celebrity experience can obviously withstand the most unexpected of challenges. I personally feel that this company has set a new standard for what could be the foreseeable future of regional dance competitions. Celebrity has set the bar very high. Drew's leadership has built a remarkable team made up of wildly talented, genuine humans that all contribute to creating the Celebrity experience.

I can't say enough about how AWESOME Celebrity is and how much it means to us. When we attended a Celebrity convention for the first time, my daughter was 14 and had been dancing for 10 years and was at the time in such a low place feeling like all her hard work was going nowhere...she wasn't meeting any of her goals and honestly we were discussing throwing in the towel on dance. Something magical happened at this celebrity convention...when the faculty spoke to the dancers from their hearts, it REALLY hit her and by the last day...she was a whole new dancer and has been on fire and meeting her goals ever since!!! This faculty genuinly CARES about these dancers!!! Love, love, love Celebrity!!!

I have been going to Celebrity since I was about 12, and it gets better every year. This past season, especially, was one of the best experiences I've had as a dancer. The energy is always so positive, and the staff and crew really DO make you feel like a Celebrity. This competition will forever and always be my favorite.
