He stopped responding to any of our emails/messages/texts right after the comp until we gave up ever getting the money. Pretty tough on a college team, especially considering budgets we have to submit to the school prior to the end of the year which consider the prize money. Both Sunset and BOTR had tons of minor issues (e.g. no practice space at Sunset so we found parking garages downtown, venue in the suburbs of BOTR while we were all downtown and the "promised" transportation never arrived on time, many last minute changes for both, etc.), but ultimately ended up being pretty fun owing largely to the fact that the locations for those two comps worked out and the judges were experienced and fair. At BOTR, our team was also hit with a massive fee from the hotel for a room that wasn't ours because we were the last to check out and the organizer was unreachable, so we just split it amongst ourselves out of pocket. Having been to those two comps though, it seems obvious in retrospect that everything was hanging by a thread and eventually it would all fall apart.yes indeed. Spartan Bhangra is still waiting for prize money from Bhangra on the rocks ?
As long as we start up competition reviews again, we can easily hold committees, judges and teams accountable.We should have a resource that has the info on all these comps so that dancers in the future know not to do comps hosted by his agency. We had never heard of him or Bhangra on the Rocks/ Sunset, but if we had we would not have applied.
