This is my dream comp: one week prior there are heat lists posted on line, the comp is located within 20 minutes of the airport for an inexpensive shuttle ride, the hotel is nice, the rooms are comfortable and quiet, there is a good practice room near the ballroom. Meals are conveniently located, both at the restaurant and in the ballroom. The comp starts on time and keeps on schedule without depriving anyone of their full time to dance. There are a mixed variety of judges who are truly objective and spend enough time to evaluate each dancer. They take their judging seriously from the bronze level to the open gold and recognize the importance and hard work each student brings in to the competition. The music is a mixture of current and traditional. Judges are spread across the ballroom so there is not a cluster of dancers at the end. Single dance awards are given and there is enough time for scholarship awards for a little bit of absorption at that moment, rather than "line up quick, take your picture, leave". Awards are useful items and the organizer truly seems to be happy to see you there. Results are posted on line quickly. That would be a perfect comp!
