WHAT ARE REVELERS SAYING?
Our dancers attended Revel Minneapolis and had such a FABULOUS time! Christian and Frank were so helpful with everything. Our dancers loved all of the classes so much. It was extremely personal. Teachers tried to learn names and gave personal corrections which is really awesome in a convention setting. The whole event was so professional as well. Our dance families and teachers were very pleased. The judges critiques were very beneficial too. We had such an amazing time at Revel and have already begun looking at the calendar for next season so we can attend more cities. Thank you, Revel!
My students and parents are still RAVING about REVEL! My students had a blast! Revel is truly something special. So organized and their staff is STELLAR! The kids are BEGGING to do all the combos in class. ESPECIALLY BALLET! You know they're doing something right. As an educator, I am so pleased with the classes my students received, as well as the entire competition experience. We would highly recommend REVEL. We can't wait to go back!
Wow! We loved our first Revel weekend! So many of our seasoned advanced dancers said it was their favorite competition convention weekend to date. We have struggled with some weekends this season where the environment wasn't ideal and made the situation stressful for parents and dancers. Your faculty created a very nurturing vibe, while maintaining challenging classes. Please know how much I appreciate that. I also appreciate that your numbers for "sold out" don't feel too big and dancers have space to dance and awards don't go passed midnight. Another thing I really liked was how you selected dances for the closing show.
So we just wrapped our final comp of the season, and honestly 100% of the feedback I'm getting about every other event from the staff, dancers and parents is, "it's ok, but it's not REVEL!" I don't know how you all do it, but we're so grateful you do. I wish we can find more events like yours because everything else has been disappointing this season. Thank you for hiring people who care so deeply (Duncan and Derek in particular) are mentioned in our studio on a near daily basis. And creating an environment where learning is truly at the center. The massive amount of work and love you and Frank pour in, it shows in every facet.
Revel Dance Convention is such a wonderful experience on so many levels. The All-Star Faculty not only brought cutting edge choreography, but they continued to encourage and inspire the dancers the entire class. Dancers could ask questions and each and every child was treated so kindly and respectfully. Each choreographer was not only motivating, but they shared their personal knowledge of helpful and very thoughtful advice. There was a personal connection made by the choreographer in each class. My daughter left REVEL a better dancer for having the opportunity and exposure to these talented choreographers. Thank you REVEL for the inspiration and positive message this weekend - what a great way to start off the year!
We couldn't possibly be happier with a dance convention than we are with REVEL! Starting with the staff, you can tell immediately that they start with heart and build from there. Then there's the amazing revolving faculty! We attended 2 events this year, the first was Charlotte. I had 42 kids that attended on a pretty late notice and literally everyone had a blast and enjoyed the weekend. From there, I decided to also take my daughter to Minneapolis. The faculty at the 2 events, only a couple weeks apart, was almost entirely different, which was great! The exposure to new and unique dance styles is beyond what everyone else is doing. REVEL will be a constant on our studio schedule going forward.
I can't say enough positive things about this convention. We travel to many of these throughout the year, and didn't know much about REVEL. I'm sure glad we gave them a chance! The faculty was EXCEPTIONAL - perhaps the best blend of teachers my kids have ever taken class from. They could not stop smiling throughout the day and learned so much. The registration fees were also very reasonable, and the day included a meet and greet with all of the faculty. Thank you REVEL for putting on a dance REVELATION! You were true to your advertising. Can't wait to attend again!
Arrival: Easy and Organized check in desk. Friendly staff. Classes : Diverse faculty that provided great choreography and technical corrections. We loved that there was also a mini workshop offering! Meet and Greet at lunch was well organized and it was a big hit with the dancers for them to get pictures with the faculty. They loved the free poster that faculty could autograph as well. Overall it was about the classes. During the workshops the faculty spent time talking to the dancers and they shared an abundance of motivational and inspiring advice. It's been a while since I have seen our dancers walk away from a convention this moved and inspired.
