INFERNO DANCE COMPETITION

Jun 28 2022

Inferno is my daughter's favorite competition. I also leave their comp feeling like us parents had an experience as well rather than just being an audience member. This was our first year at Nationals. They really set the standard high and made it fun for our whole family. We can't wait for next year.

Hands down one of the best competitions to deal with from the staff, to the competition, to the judging. Not only are they top notch competition but they offer so many more valuable experiences for dancers above and beyond dance. We look forward to seeing the Inferno family every season and have been with them pretty much since day one.

as a smaller studio Inferno's ability to make us feel just as important as the big studios makes a big difference to me and my team. We joined them for the first time this year and had a fantastic time. From the office staff to those actually working the event, we were treated with respect and kindness. We will definitely be coming back in 2023!

We finally had our dates line up with Inferno this year and WOW-they have really stepped up their game since we went last. Our students had a blast the entire weekend! We are an average size studio and I feel like we were treated just as well as the larger studios that were there. We loved it so much that we are considering attending their nationals next season and will definitely be making the dates work no matter what!

We attended with Inferno in Minneapolis. It was a massive event with two rooms going on, but my daughter had such a blast. The staff was so friendly and kind and always willing to help with directions or questions!! Definitely hoping our studio goes back again next year!

We love inferno. It's our favorite competition of the year and we will be attending their nationals this year as well. I love everything about them, but my favorite thing is how friendly their staff is. They make every dancer feel important and seen. My daughter always leaves their events feeling excited and inspired to keep working hard.

I read through some of their reviews, and I am shocked that anyone would have something bad to say about Inferno. We love the atmosphere, their staff, their mission...everything is always top notch. What I appreciate most is the fact that they make everyone feel important. We look forward to their competition every year and I don't see that changing any time soon. If you are on the fence about trying them out, I highly recommend that you do.

We went several years ago and had an OK experience but we decided to try again this year after seeing a lot of talk on FB and wow...we LOVE Inferno. Most of all, the staff was so positive and energetic. My dancers had the best time with them. They also recognize sportsmanship and artistry very highly which we are all about. Comp ran on time (often ahead) and communication was clear. The awards are beautiful and even though my dancers didn't place highly, I feel we were still recognized for our strengths. Will definitely be going back next year.

Inferno has really stepped up their game this year! You can tell they have taken the time to listen to what clients wanted and have made their comps such an incredible experience! We LOVED everything from the atmosphere, staff, energy, awards, activities-seriously everything! At least from a parent and dancer perspective, we can't WAIT to go back next year!!

Terrible competition. Very unfriendly staff and less than professional judges panel. NOTHING made sense this weekend in Detroit, Michigan. It’s time for parents to stop writing checks to these companies and continually supporting their crappy events. The atmosphere at this weekends Detroit, Michigan competition was less than positive. The emcee smacked her gum all weekend and rushed through the JOKE adjudications. Rushed numbers on and off stage. Total chaos backstage becasue there were TWO individuals actually working while blonde tottered around fixing her hair. And thank you to studios like The Dance Factory and their overcooked owner for being such a nasty addition to the weekend. Bet y’all gave her a pin too ?!!

Best competition I've been to in years! The staff was extremely personable and made my dancers feel important. We aren't a very large studio, so it meant a lot to me that they still made us feel important. I also loved that my dancers got to see themselves on social media after the event! We will definitely be back next year!

This was our first time competing at Inferno and it was a great experience. The judging was fair, the critiques were useful, and they even moved the Sunday start time once they realized it was day lights savings time and the soloists would have to be there WAY too early. I only wish they would find a venue closer to the Detroit area.

We had a GREAT time at the 2019 Columbus, Ohio event. The competition was very well-organized and the backstage staff was kind, helpful and VERY on top of things. The awards ceremonies were fun and unique and the competition staff did a wonderful job of creating/acquiring more dressing room space when it was needed, as the weekend progressed. The event ran ahead of schedule, and the emcee/director, Hayley, did an amazing job engaging both the audience and the kids onstage during the awards. Our comments/critiques were helpful, educated and specific. Our students and parents really appreciated that the comments for dances on Day #3 of the competition were just as thorough as those on Day #1. Inferno not only provided FREE videos and pictures for all dances, but comments/critiques that could be shared with dancers/their families via email.

The worst competition we’ve been to in 20 years. The judges were never announced because they were incompetent and unable to judge dance technique other than tricks. The whole thing was boring and lifeless in a horrible venue. Never again!

We are so excited to be coming back to Inferno Dance in 2019. Our students loved the excited staff backstage. It's been great working with their internal staff regarding registration. The emcee did a great job of getting the crowd involved, and we love the positive energy felt throughout the whole competition! Excited for next year!

BEWARE! BEWARE!! BEWARE !!! We have been competing for 7 years and have NEVER been to such a disorganized free for all in our lives. Our schedule was changed at least three times. The dressing rooms were so overcrowded we were elbow to elbow with other dancers and it took 15 minutes to get through the cafeteria to get to the stage. The competition was running THREE HOURS LATE! and the manager of the competition was told not to have an awards ceremony by other studio owners to keep it going but never included our owners in the decision making process when we had dancers in that session who waited three hours for the awards. We had grandparents in the audience who waited three hours to see awards only to be told if they wanted to wait another 2-3 hours they would include it in the last session that was going to be at 11:30 PM ! That means they expected them to wait 5-6 hours for awards. How could they think this was even acceptable? We did not leave the venue until after 12:15 PM on Sunday night. There were no rules being followed or implemented. We all as parents felt completely ripped off by this competition because we did not get what we paid for. If I could give negative stars I would. You are risking a lot by even contemplating attending this competition. All our dancers and teachers left upset and crying. I have a senior and this was her very last competition and to have this experience was the worst way any child could end their competition season let alone their very last competition. The owner of this competition should be ashamed of themselves.

We have only done this competition once, but had a very positive experience. I know there are others that are not a fan and it is a much smaller competition, but we were very pleases with their staff and their interest in making sure the dancers were having a good time. The venue was not a highlight, but worked for the size of the competition we attended. It's not one that we will continue to go back to, but we are very glad we went as it was a good experience for us.

I would not do this competition again. Very disorganized and little communication. The order of the show changed 3 times after it was released to the studio owners and huge changes like dancing on a different day than originally told. It also changed the day of the competition so no one knew the correct order and when to expect their dancers on stage. Costume awards were only given to studios who used Inferno's horrible costume designer (Presto Designs). Long waits in between numbers and there were issues with the music wouldn't play or get really low during the dance. If you asked the staff working at the competition a question no one seemed to know the answer. Also, there was no parking at the school where the competition took place.

They had the most unbelievable convention in Cedar Rapids. The energy was fantastic, the teachers were so nice. We even got to dance for a strut off. The solo competition was so much fun! and the dinner was fantastic!
