We are excited to announce the launch of this program at our studio, even if it doesn’t seem like the most ideal time. But, we are moving forward with our plan of implementing this into our Dance Academy. The purpose of establishing this program at TFDA this year, is to help those dancers who want to make more of a commitment to this art form and have plans to further challenge and grow their dance path and career.
There are requirements for this program and we want the students and parents to understand this is a more focused program for budding artists that comes with a level of commitment and responsibility that should be taken seriously by the student (and parents). Within this program, we will provide these students with opportunities and curate the training and curriculum to fit the needs of not only the group but the individual, in order to get them on a path working towards their own individual desires and goals.
There is a limited number of spots available until we can increase our in-studio capacity. An exciting aspect to this program is that the Pre-Pro Students will be challenged in specific Company only classes, but will also have some classes with friends they’ve made in the past who may not be doing the program. Our goal is to enhance the journey for those who want to dedicate more to their craft in the arts.
If your child would like to be considered for the Pre-Pro Program, please submit an application form at the link below. We would like the students to answer the questions and submit their application on their own. We understand this is a quick turnaround, but all applications need to be submitted no later than August 13th, 2020.
Once selected students have been notified, a parent group Q&A via Zoom will be scheduled.
PLEASE NOTE: It is preferred to have all Pre-Pro students attend in-studio for their required classes but are aware that not all families will be comfortable with this. Applications will be reviewed on a case by case basis, ultimately configuring a plan that can work for all parties so if your child is interested in being a part of this program, we still encourage you to submit an application.
