Hi Dan and Lidia, On behalf of Creswell Dance Academy, THANK YOU for another fun filled weekend of dance!!! Good luck with the rest of your season:)
Best, Mary Anne

Dearest Lidia, Dan, Thomas and Erica, Thank you for a wonderful weekend! You guys give so much personal attention. So much attention to detail. I notice everything and I can’t thank you enough for all your effort. I sincerely hope that Erica is feeling better and was able to rest a little. We will be eagerly awaiting the news of the precious baby in June. Please, please let us know. Wishing you all continued success for the rest of the season and always. You’re doing it right! All my love and best wishes.
Debbie Rosenberg

Hi Dan and Lidia, I hope that you are enjoying some well deserved R&R. I am exhausted from the weekend but wanted to reach out and let you know how much my daughter and I enjoyed your competition this past weekend. We have been to many Comps over the past few years and we both really enjoyed the weekend so thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. Your comment form did not allow for a space to let you how what we enjoyed most so I wanted to make sure you knew what we appreciated. We loved the venue and the staff at the venue. We really loved the judges and how they provided feedback on stage. My daughter participated in both the Junior dance-off and the improv and she had great experiences with both. Your announcer had great energy and rapport with the kids. Your staff was amazing and very responsive and helpful. Lidia you helped us with some changeroom challenges and I spoke to you at the boutique about how much we enjoyed the care you took with the program/schedule and mixing up the styles of dance to keep everything interesting. Thanks so much for such an enjoyable and inspiring weekend!

Hi Star Beat Family We loved both of your competitions. We will most certainly be back again next year. Thank you for everything. Amazing competition! Thanks again!

Dear Dan, Lidia & Team
I just wanted to take a moment to truly thank you for always hosting a fantastic competition. Our school has been participating in you comp for a number of years and each ear gets better and better.
It’s only natural to compare various comps during ones dance life and I have to say that your competition has to be the best one to attend. Your collaboration as team stands out to us. We admire your entire organization process at Star Beat. Dan & Thomas are so very helpful back stage with props and overall dlow of the agenda. Coming from a school that takes props to a whole other level – that means a lot to have extr hands to move our props in place.
Your family dynamic is amazing and we feel a part of that each year we see you.
Thank you for always being so helpful to our school. Congrats on your 15th year anniversary. Here’s to many great years to come!
With much love & appreciation
Parent, London School of Dance

We absolutely loved the experience at Starbeat. You guys are among the very few competitions that are fair, positive and encouraging not only to your clients, but to all the dancers, parents, teachers and staff. We absolutely love the atmosphere of starbeat- continually encouraging dancers to “reach for the stars”. Lol
Thanks again for a fantastic start to our competitive season.

Hi Lidia and Dan,
I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for the past 10 years of my dance career. You have truly captured the essence of what a dance competition should be – fun, competitive and rewarding! Star Beat has always been my favourite competition. Whether it be the beautifully decorated special awards, the classic theme song at adjudication, the atmosphere and schedule of the whole weekend, or the incredible judges! Star Beat has always stood out in my eyes as a top dance competition because of the incredible opportunities it provides young dancers with! I have made so many friends over the years at Star Beat that I run into at auditions all the time. I have also been fortunate to travel to New York City because of a scholarship to Steps On Broadway that I won at Star Beat, which actually was one of the turning points in my dance career. I hope to visit you again next year to come watch at Vaughan City Playhouse and support your competition! My kind words will be spread to anyone I know. Just wanted to thank you so much for providing me with such terrific opportunities and making every April of the past ten years something truly magical. I will sincerely miss you two and this competition!
Hope to see you soon!
Yours truly,
Bailey Woodman

Hi Lidia and Dan,

Hi guys we had a great time on the weekend, the kids were riding on a real high the last few days they really loved it. See you soon!
