WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

VALERIE W. 
STUDIO DIRECTOR
TEXAS

I love everything about GuiDANCE!

The studio I direct our competition teams at has attended since 2019 and we look forward to coming back year after year. Love that everything is kept in mind for young dancers from content appropriateness to no late-night awards sessions. Always appreciate the amazing feedback and classes we receive from the judging panel as well!

guiDANCE is a breath of fresh air!

There is a need in the arena of dance competitions that fosters healthy goals, great role models, and respect for the art and the artist. As a former school teacher, I love everything guiDANCE stands for in dance and in life!

BETH B. 
STUDIO OWNER
OKLAHOMA

We don’t go to many competitions,

just one a year, and we chose GDX!

We would rather drive the distance to an event that holds studios to standards for appropriate music, costuming, and choreography.

I enjoyed watching the dances the other studios brought too! Great job to the studio owners and the guiDANCE team for making dance great! Thanks again for providing a safe space

for dancers to dance!
