Dear Mark and Tracy,

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! Bedazzled has always been one of my favorite competitions and something I look forward to each and every May. Whether it be the beautifully decorated special awards, the atmosphere of all the studios that compete there, the beautiful theatres that Bedazzled rent's out, or the incredible judges! Bedazzled has always been a special competition that I know at least every studio attends at least once in the season. I have made so many friends over the years at Bedazzle that I run into at auditions all the time and keep in touch with. I have always loved sharing my love of dance on the Bedazzled stage, and have always felt welcome and comfortable enough to do so. I hope to visit you again next year to come watch and support your competition! Just wanted to thank you so much for providing me with such terrific opportunities and making every May 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
Just attended the competition at Blue Mountain this weekend and wanted to say how much we enjoyed ourselves at your event. My main reason for emailing you is my daughter Katherine was given a gift from the host and he said some very nice things about her and mentioned he had watched her grow up etc. He did give her a bag for her memories, as she is 18 and probably her last year. When she was 8 he gave her a stuffed animal for her ballet solo. So he basically gave her one of her ever first awards and one of her last and I just wanted to share that with you.

Thanks again for the memories!

Hi Tracy and Mark.

I just wanted to take a few moments, on behalf of Katie and myself, to thank you for 9 great years of dance competitions. It's hard to believe how quickly that time has passed! Over the course of Katie's dance comp. life we have attended many a competition, but Bedazzled has always been one of our very favourites. You run a very classy and positive event. Along with your wonderful staff (including my buddies at RX Media), you both are especially genuine, caring people who have provided Katie with a wealth of great experiences.

I want to say a special thank you to Mark for recognizing the "graduating" dancers and giving Katie the MC Mark award at the last session. That meant so much to both of us, and I can tell you there were many of us adults in the audience who were on the hunt for a Kleenex during that presentation.

As Katie heads off into a new direction in her dance life we will always treasure the time spent at Bedazzled, and she takes away from it many positive life lessons and character growth. We wish you continued success and hope to see you again in the future.

Many thanks again, and all the best!

I want to thank you for an awesome week in blue mountain! Emily loved the workshops, the opportunity to watch others dance and all the new friends she was able to meet. You create a positive, supportive and enthusiastic environment for our younge dancers to celebrate their accomplishments. Emily has come home with a renewed determination to learn new things. She keeps telling me she wants to have something "really good to show Miss Tracey and MC Mark next year". Lol

Tracy and Bedazzled family:

Just 4 Kicks Academy of Dance would like to thank you for the most positive dance experience we could have asked for! The most significant part for me was the professional, but relaxed atmosphere you provided not only my staff and I, but for my students and parents. I don't think people understand the importance of what you put out you get back. Not once was I on edge or worried about anything , but truly the most amazing atmosphere and energy was given buy each and everyone of you. We have been competiting for 19 years and have to make sure you know just how much Bedazzled stands above!

Congratulations on providing an amazing experience!

Thank you Tracy and Mark for yet another very well run dance competition. Our families love coming to Bedazzled for everything it is..fun, efficient, consistent judging, easy-going, organized, rewarding, and finally loving..It is so touching when I hear Mark comment about some of the kids he has watched grow and develop since the beginning. Your generosity and authenticity is so appreciated in an industry that is subjective. Thank you for everything. See you next year!!

I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to everyone involved in such a wonderful and positive dance competition.
This was the first year that my daughter participated in this dance show and it was just amazing. Things ran so smoothly, the awards given out were phenomenal, the girls had a great time. When the proper awards are being handed out, it's amazing how contagious this good feeling carries on throughout the whole dance studio. Their confidence just was amazing on that stage - everyone looked amazing and did such an excellent job.
Thanks again - all the best with the rest of the competitions this year and again THANKS.

Just attended the competition at Blue Mountain this weekend and wanted to say how much we enjoyed ourselves at your event. My main reason for emailing you is my daughter Katherine was given a gift from the host and he said some very nice things about her and mentioned he had watched her grow up etc. He did give her a bag for her memories as she is 18 and probably her last year. With that being said, he probably doesn’t remember but when she was 8 he gave her a stuffed animal for her ballet solo as she was the first number of the morning at 8:00. So he basically gave her one of her ever first awards and one of her last and I just wanted to share that with you.

So thanks again for the memories!

Truly Grateful! Mark & Tracy and BeDazzled Staff!
We had a great time at your competition...each and every year we
have attended!...However, not only do you put on a great show, you are truly, amazing people...without a blink you made our studio feel special through your kindness in a tragedy...You sponsored one of our dance families as they mourned the loss of their mother...it was a kindness that went without praise which will always be cherished beyond the dancing... you truly are BEDAZZLED! Love BASIC ATTITUDE dance company
