Testimonials

“I just wanted to congratulate you on such a job well done. All of my dancers had nothing but positive feed back, they even made friends with some other studios students. It was such a positive and inspiring place to be. Thank you so much for all your hard work.” – Vickie, Rocky Mountain House

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you so very much for the opportunity to work with you last week in Ft. Sask! I had a really nice time, and was impressed with how well the competition was run. You run a tight ship, and it shows that you really care about your product and the impact it can have our students lives. Thank you again, and hope the rest of your season goes smoothly!” – Chris, Adjudicator

“I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for having me back this year! You and your mom run such a fantastic festival and the students, teachers and parents are so kind, polite and appreciative. You have created such a positive atmosphere for these students to learn and grow and I am so lucky to be a part of that. I always have such an amazing time working for you and your festivals are one of my most favourite events to adjudicate. I can only imagine the time, stress and hard work that goes on behind the scenes but I hope you know how much all of your hard work is appreciated from an adjudicator’s stand point and I’m sure the studio directors, parents and students feel the same way! Good luck with the remainder of the season and I look forward to seeing you again soon!”Nicole, Adjudicator

“Dance Soul would like to say a huge thank you to Shy Ann on another outstanding competition! Splitting the competition up between performance and competitive dancers was an amazing idea that has helped give my dancers a lot of confidence. I have done the leg work and don’t think anyone is as generous as Shy Ann when it comes to cash scholarships, high score awards and adjudicator’s choice scholarships. Because of Shy Ann, my dancers can save money towards pursuing their dance education and always receive great feedback from excellent judges. My heart is full and my tummy content from being fed amazing catered food all weekend. THANK YOU Shylo and Annabelle for everything you do, the months and months it takes to prepare such an event and the grace, light and humour you do it with. Dance Soul is so lucky to live in the same province as Shy Ann to attend multiple events each season. Lastly thank you to all the amazing and inspiring dancers, choreographers and studio owners. There was so much love at Shy Ann and such ease being around everyone.”Priscilla, Stony Plain

“Thank you again for a lovely weekend of dancing! I had a fabulous time and look forward to working with you again in the future. Have a fantastic competition season!” – Lexy, Adjudicator

“We appreciate how much time and effort goes into sorting everyone’s suggestions and thoughts. We are very excited to be a part of your festival this season as it has been so difficult in past years to participate due to high demand. We’ve loved our experiences each time we’ve attended and value all that you’ve done to keep things fair, current and positive for all involved. Thank you for including us! Looking forward to this season 🙂 ” – Jennifer, Calgary

“Thank you for yet another awesome experience at one of your festivals. I always have a great time and you put on such fantastic, positive events!”Julie, Adjudicator

“Thank-you…for having us this weekend.  My students all had a positive experience and appreciated that not everyone was just being handed out golds.  My Senior Crew enjoyed watching all the strong technique that was displayed all weekend and were inspired by it. Good luck with the rest of your festival season!”Kristi, Stony Plain

“Thank you very much for all your hard work, for your great organization, personable staff, the amazing food and wonderful judges.  Our teachers, students and families were thrilled with the festival. Thank you for making it a positive experience for everyone.”Noelle, Sherwood Park

“We would like to mention how generous Shy-Ann Dance Productions Ltd. is as not all competition companies are created equal. They are blazing a trail by how much they give back to dancers and their studios. While many companies offer a few scholarships at the end, Shy-Ann literally gives out tens of thousands of dollars over the festival season. We are proud to support them and are so happy that so many of our students can use their scholarship money to further their dance education through workshops, conventions, summer intensives and our travel opportunities.” — Erin, Stony Plain

“I just wanted to thank you for having us at your Sundance Festival this past season! Everything was so organized, from the time you sent out program, to keeping on track throughout the festival. I heard so many positive comments exchanged between dancers/studios/teachers! My students, families, and myself really enjoyed it! :)”  — Maddi, Stony Plain

“Just wanted to send you a quick thanks for such an amazing few days. Our teachers, parents and kids LOVED Santana! Good luck through the rest of the festival season. And again – good work on running such a solid, efficient festival!” — Tracey, St. Albert

“I just wanted to thank you again for a lovely festival. I really enjoyed the fact that you gave out all four medal colors, and for the most part the judging I felt stayed consistent. The photographers had a million pictures to choose from and I felt it was well organized. I also really appreciated the short categories and ample opportunities for children to get awards and scholarships. The food that you served in the teacher’s lounge was beyond fabulous! Parents won’t mind driving 9 hours when we have this kind of service.”  — Courtney, High Level

“…would like to say a big thank you to Shylo and Annabelle for putting on such a great festival. Thank you for giving back to the kids and not having 30 dancers in one category. My parents and dancers enjoyed it a lot…Take Care and have a great season.” — Julie, Red Deer  

“I cannot say enough kind words about the way your competition is run. Your competition is pure class and I am so thankful to have my company participate in it.”— Debra, Calgary
