Testimonials

Hi guys. I just wanted to send you both a quick note to let you know how very much we are enjoying our time at Dance Attack. To quote my daughter Hailey, “This is just the best comp, Mom! I love everything about it!” Couldn’t agree more. From the atmosphere of your clientele to your backstage team – truly phenomenal. Your judging panel is fun, engaging and encouraging. Thank you both for including us in your exclusive club of fabulousness. Looking forward to another great day. See you in the a.m.!

Lorinda Crawford , Stage Presence School of Dance
Again Congratulations Kent and Jay T it was an amazing weekend and my students had so much fun at the competition and the awards were awesome! The students loved the photo booth and the idea of having the tv screen with the number that was on as well as being able to watch other numbers was such an amazing idea. The backstage staff was so kind and easy to work with also! And the most thoughtful moment was when you had the graduating students come up and acknowledge them. I know my students were so emotional and it meant so much to them! Congratulations on you and your teams first competition being a success! Can’t wait for next year! I bet you guys have competition hangover today though!
Kerry, Star Lite Dance Studio – Director

Thank you Kent McCord for such an amazing weekend!! Your competition is just as amazing as your teachers expo and your workshops!! The businesses you have created are beyond amazing and I am beyond happy to be able to attend each of them!!!  

Angel Junkin, Dancing Angels Academy

WOW!! I’m so impressed! We have never in 10 years have we had a comp schedule 2.5 month ahead!
Thank you Kent for being so organized!

Jen Cafik-Mercer, Jazz it Up Jenn Dance Studio – Director
DUDE!! Best weekend Ever!! I’m telling you, I have never had a Comp where all of my parents don’t have ANYTHING negative to say!! You Killed It!! Thanks for all you do!!
CONGRATS on an amazing, well organized, fun, inspiring first competition. My team and I had a BLAST and can’t wait for next season!!!!!! From The amazing JT, to the photo booth and everything in between, you hit the nail on the head in every area!!!!!
Tiffany, Caledonia Dance Studio – Director

My kids, parents, and myself  were very happy with Dance Attack.. Thank you for a great weekend! They will thrilled with how they danced and the tremendous way you enlighten the kids about doing their best and relating it to life lessons rather than about the award it is about the reward! Great focus! 

Sherri Chaffey, Basic Attitude Dance Company

I’ve gotten back a lot of feedback from my parents and wanted you to know what everyone’s opinions were. There was not a single negative response about the competition itself! Everyone absolutely loved the amount of respect and helpful staff you had on board. Everyone was ready to help anyone out! They all were happy with the time efficiency and not running late at all ( it was a great relief from sometimes running an hour late at previous comps).

The amount of recognition you gave teachers and dancers was well received as well. Parents were loving the awards that actually come in handy and they can use rather than a huge and great scholarship to somewhere only to find out it won’t work out or happen so it’s just a wasted scholarship and causes disappointment for the dancer.

A HUGE thank you and congratulations on a phenomenal first competition!! Amazing job and we will 100% be back next year for workshop and competition!! I think my parents would kill me if we didn’t lol.

Monika, Brooklin Dance Academy – Director
All the dancers at PDC had an amazing time! Your staff was fantastic, and Jay T is THE best host ever! …You went above and beyond to give the kids and teachers incredible opportunities!! Prizes and scholarships like no other….Well Done Kent!
Karly, Precision’s Dance Company – Director
