The Dance Company

Participation in the recital is optional; however, we feel that stage performance is a very important part of the student''s dance training. It is the time when you are able to see and appreciate the advancement of your child''s dance ability. By participating in the performance, the students will learn how to follow stage directions, gain stage presence and develop confidence in their abilities. Each year our recital is held in the Mark Smith Concert Hall at the Von Braun Civic Center. There is no admission charged to the show!

Costumes are required for those students participating in our annual dance revue. Parents, you are responsible for verifying your child’s size to be ordered as well as indicating if you wish a costume ordered or not. (This is done during parents’ week when you visit your children’s classes.) Costume fees, as follows are due by October 15th. There will be a $10 late fee if paid after October 15th. Stage Arts - $66.95; 5/6 year combo - $68.95; elementary levels - $70.95; all levels intermediate and up - $80.95.

Competition Dancers
Students interested in becoming a Company Dancer should see the office in the Spring for paperwork regarding our audition process. Competition groups are chosen by TDC staff members as well as clinicians hired by the studio. Competition dancers are required to take competition classes in addition to their regular dance classes.

Because our time belongs to our students, no visitors are allowed in any class. The exception to this rule is during Visitors Week. You will be notified in advance of these dates.
