What are Competition Companies The Dance Academy?

    TDA Companies are offered to ages 4 to 18 years and members are selected through an audition process.  Companies compete at local competitions, studio competitions, and dance conventions.  Some of our companies will also travel out of state for competition or continuing dance training from top names in the industry.  Our companies are invited to perform at local high school spring shows as guest performers, they perform in our Winter Showcase, and in our end of year recital.  In addition, we provide our company dancers with a variety of dance opportunities throughout the year such as in house Dance Intensives and Master Classes.  Our dancers are versatile and are able to perform in all genres of dance:  jazz, contemporary, modern, hip hop, character, tap, pom, and kicks. Although our focus is more jazz and contemporary, we want our dancers to be able to do all styles.  We have had award-winning competition teams for over 20 years, and we are proud to continue evolving into more highly trained dancers with strong skills in performance, competition, and improvisation.  Our company members are often recognized as top dancers in solo competitions around the state, and a large percentage of our members are recognized with scholarships at dance conventions.  We train our dancers to be confident, skilled, poised, articulate, and committed.  It is important that our dancers learn how to be all these things and still embody an attitude of humility and love for one another.

How do I get started?

We have a very qualified and caring staff that will meet with each dancer and their parent to discuss goals and necessary steps to reach them.  We will create a plan of action for each company member to ensure they are on the right track and are taking the necessary classes and training to reach their potential.
