We are always looking for the best on the web tools to help you and we just found a great website that can help you determine what products and competitions you might want to enroll in. While we can't guarantee that all these ratings are objective, it does seem to us that the more ratings the competitions have, the better chance you have in understanding the best events to attend.
The site, called DANCE COMPETITION HUB states as its mission: To strengthen the dance community by giving EVERYONE a voice. Please share your competition, convention and vendor experiences. TOGETHER, we will create a more honest, dynamic and informed dance community.
Dance Competition Hub was started by Chicago studio owners to give studios (and everyone involved) a voice. Many small studios can only pick one regional and take a gamble on which they attend. DCH helps to refine that choice. DCH has been called the "Yelp" of the dance studio industry and they report that ratings have been almost 80% positive. They believe that ratings not only help studios, but the competitions as well. How the competitions respond to critiques is easily as important as the critique themselves. The two-way communication was extremely important to making the site an objective tool for anyone using the site.
DCH is also features other vendors, including our own SCHOOL EMPOWER studio management system as well as Dance Studios Web Design. We hope you find this tool helpful! Let us know!
