As a new studio and one that hasn’t ever attended ADA before, I really appreciate that you took the time in the busy schedule to make me feel like my voice was being heard. It’s moments like that as a small school that make me want to continue to bring my kids back to a huge competition like yours and feel like my dancers and my studio are just as valid as the huge schools that you guys attract 🙂

I also wanted to say that I LOVE that the adjudications really showed a range the past two days! An accurate range that reflects below average, average and above average performances.

Everything about this weekend has me sold to become a repeat customer for Regionals next season and certainly Nationals in the future! Thank you again for providing outstanding customer service and a wonderful weekend for my students and families!
