2019 Disney Tour ~ Most fun dancing experience ever!

I just went to Disney for the second time with Badgerette! My freshman year, I had an absolute blast! I didn’t know what to expect but the overall experience was what made me so excited to know we got to go again. Working hard during the summer, and with my team, to know it paid off and that we are going back to Disney, well, was magical!! When it was time to go home, I had realized I hadn’t thanked the staff or the people who put this show together for us properly. I know this is long over due, but I wanted to say thank you for the most fun, dancing experience, I’ve ever had! Thanks to you guys, the tour was amazing. I felt I hadn’t shared how thankful and grateful I was to be going my freshman and sophomore year. It wouldn’t have been possible without the Anne and the Badgerette Staff. Anyways, I needed to properly thank you guys, Disney was fantastic, and so fun. The Badgerette competitions are always so organized, I don’t know how you guys do it! Thank you so much!! See you guys at camp, next season!!

NYC Tour ~ Thank you!

Thank you for all of the planning that you do before and during the NYC trip. Emma and I had an incredible time once again. I would highly encourage anyone who has the opportunity to go on this trip both their Junior and Senior years, to do it. The second time was just as magical as the first time! There were new things to see and explore, and also things we were excited to revisit. Mean Girls and Frozen were both amazing shows! Your tour has just right the balance of scheduled activities and free time. Thanks for all that you do, it is very much appreciated!

2018 NYC Tour!

Abby & I wanted to thank you very much for an amazing NYC Dance Starz tour. We appreciate all of the planning and preparation that you did to make our trip run so seamlessly. You thought of everything to make our trip extra special… the wonderful tour with Gil, the walk through Central Park, outstanding Broadway Shows and the opportunity to meet the Frozen actors, the 911 Memorial, fabulous dance classes for the girls, free time to shop & explore and to top it off a parting gift of a t-shirt with our names on it to remember the occasion! You really made it a trip that we will always remember.

From my perspective it was an extra special trip because I got to share the experience with Abby, AND I didn’t have to plan it!:) As a mom, I am always the trip planner for our family, so I know how much work it is and I really appreciate your efforts to make us have a wonderful experience. I have been to NYC many times, but I learned so much on this trip that I hadn’t known before. I even took notes so I wouldn’t forget some of the cool things that Gil shared with us. You were all so very kind and helpful throughout Thank you for everything,

Midwest ~ Thank You!

I just wanted to reach out and let you know how absolutely honored I was to be named the Most Supportive Parent by Badgerette at the Midwest Championship this weekend.  After spending the past seven years with my two daughters being involved in poms and the Badgerette Program I can’t tell you how much you, your staff, and the entire Badgerette family has meant to us.  Your program has helped shape my daughters in such a positive way.   The leadership you’ve all provided, the avenue for them to follow their passion, and giving us an arena to interact with such positive, inspiring role models is priceless.  The inspiration it has provided our family will never be forgotten. 

Although this is our last year with the program I must let you know that it has been by far the best.  Our team left for Badgerette Whitewater Camp and came back an entirely different team.  The enthusiasm and energy they returned with is like nothing I have ever seen.  The Badgerette Family had such an amazing influence on this team and it was on full display this weekend at Midwest.  This is an incredible program and I am going to miss being a part of it.

As I sit here with tears in my eyes I truly want to thank you, your staff, and the entire Badgerette Organization from the bottom of my heart.  I am proud that my daughters were able to experience such an amazing organization.  The memories made over the years will be truly cherished. Thanks again!

Thank you So Much!

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for having the leadership workshop. My girls came back full of ideas and inspiration for our season. You should have seen their faces this morning, they were so excited to show me everything they had learned! They loved the day and just think so highly of you!! What you do for teams, coaches, and these girls is just amazing!  Thank you so much!

Badgerette Camps & Competitions are the BEST!

Badgerette, Inc. is the MOST positive, relevant, supportive, and professional Pom/Dance Camp and Competition company around! The EC North dance team has been attending Badgerette summer camps and competitions for well over 30 years and Danz Kraze has been for over 10 years. Your dancers will learn SO much more than great dancing. My girls have thrived because of the experiences and opportunities they’ve gotten through Badgerette—if you have the chance to send your child to a Badgerette event, you must! So happy that Mallory gets 4 more years of Badgie events!

NYC Tour ~ Amazing Opportunity!

As we are reflecting back on the weekend, we just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity of the NYC tour trip!  We had an amazing time and created so many lasting memories!  We made friendships and strengthened bonds with other girls and their mothers as we shared in this experience.  We had never been to New York before and felt that we got to experience so much of the city this weekend!  You have a great team in place to make this trip one that we will remember forever-from the Bagerette staff to Gil - everyone made this a memorable trip.  We appreciate all of your time and efforts in coordinating this opportunity and we enjoyed meeting you.Thank you again!

Thank you for a Great Camp!

Thank you for the great camp session! My girls enjoyed it so much :) The dances were  challenging and we appreciated it. I am especially grateful to Lauren for being the best Badgie ever!! She is so sweet and fun and hilarious! We wanted to make sure we gave her a great evaluation for her time with us! The other Badgies were awesome as well, always so sweet! Thanks again! :)

Thank You for a Wonderful Season!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful season! The experience of my 19 girls would not be the same without Badgerette. It's been so heartwarming to hear the girls talk about the badgies like they are celebrities. And the best part is when they get the chance to talk to dancers like Maddy Spidell and the All Stars and it's as though they just met their hero. Thank you creating an environment where young ladies get the opportunity to grow beyond their dancing through their spirit. They have so much respect for this program. I couldn't be happier to be a part of this wonderful experience for 10 years now. I can't imagine leaving this one day, so expect to have me around for a long time, haha. Thank you for allowing me to grow as a coach and a person this year. It's amazing to be a part of these coach talks and hear the ideas of many.  Thank you once again!

Thank you for an Amazing Job!

Hi!  I have told you before but I feel inspired to tell you again...  Beside, people should know when they do a really great job!  Also, yesterday I think I figured out what makes your competitions different.  Truly, it might just be me because I'm an old Pom disciple, but there's a comfort level at your competitions that make it feel....safe.  I know...weird word...but I know you know what I mean.  It's all for good of empowering these girls and fostering a complete love of team and of dance. Thank you for doing such an amazing job year in and year out!

~ Mary Deeken, Hamilton Sparklers- Director, WI

Thank You for What you Have Done for our Team!

Thank you so much for everything you've done for our teams.  I notice a complete change in their attitudes since going to Badgerette camp last year and since I made a change in their coaching just recently.   They are so much more happy and positive about everything now and seem to reach out to other teams and appreciate them and their performances so much more.  A lot of this has to do with the friendliness of you and your staff, getting to know the girls on a more personal level and your demand for good sportsmanship.   I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do!  

~ Judy Johnson, Allegro Eminence Dance- Director, WI

I Will Never Forget It!

Thank you so much, I am feeling beyond blessed to have been a part of the 20th anniversary Badgerette All Star Talent Tour!  I would like to say thank you to you and all of the Badgerette staff that put the work in to make the tour wonderful. I had so much fun dancing in lights, in front of Epcot, and on the beauty and the beast stage, I sure did feel like Cinderella!! Thank you, I will never forget it!

What an Amazing Ride it Has Been...

Alaina reported that it was truly “magical;” that’s the word she used.  She had texted me to report her “last Disney performance,” feeling sad and telling me “I don’t want it to end.” That says so much about how she feels about the whole Disney/Badgerette experience. In my responsive text, I told her “I know it’s sad, but what an amazing ride it’s been. Cherish these final moments; engrave them on your heart so you don’t forget them.” Thank you for all that you do. As a father, I am just so appreciative for the opportunities Alaina had through Badgerette. God bless your day.

Loved the Entire Experience!

We loved with the entire experience. 
Taylor enjoyed all of the tour so much and meeting so many other dancers. Our favorite was the parade. Still can't believe it!!  The dancers looked amazing at every event. What an impressive group of girls! Thank you so much for giving Taylor the opportunity be apart of this Disney tour and her tour to NYC last year. We truly enjoyed all of it.  It was so fun to see the friends we made last year at NYC again. Taylor has learned many leadership skills through poms and has been blessed with these opportunities that are unforgettable. Thank you!
