More information about our Company! 

Our Company program is more than just a Competitive team, it is also a Company created to give back to the community through performances and special events while instilling the importance of personal growth versus just receiving trophies!

Students will participate in 3 or 4  Competitions as well as local community events including Milton Culture Days, Local Fairs and Fundraising Events, The Nutcracker Holiday Spectacular, and The Santa Claus Parade to name a few!

We offer two levels of Company each season.  Our goal is to provide various levels of training to our students with the same commitment to offering extra performance opportunities to our dancers. Please see a detailed breakdown of requirements for each level below.

What is the audition process? Dancers can attend our open audition in the Spring or schedule a private audition in the Spring/Summer. Once they have been invited into the Competitive program, all dancers MUST attend one of our Intensive Camps (based on age and ability) as the final stage of the audition. Dancers will be evaluated for additional groups, duets/trios, and solos at this camp.

What is the time requirement? Part-time dancers are looking at a 2-4 day commitment and full-time dancers will train 3-5 days a week based on how many classes the dancer chooses to participate in.

How many classes does my dancer have to take each week? All dancers must take at least one class in ballet, jazz, and tap. Why? Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms and teaches posture, control, and transitions. Tap helps with rhythm, musicality, and fine motor skills and jazz helps with style, flexibility, and coordination.

Can my dancer just compete in Tap, Hip Hop, or Acro? All dancers must compete in 1 jazz routine in order to participate in the TDC company. After that, dancers may be invited into tap, acro, hip-hop, ballet, musical theatre, lyrical, and/or contemporary groups.

Do you offer advanced levels of training? Dancers may be asked to participate in our advanced acro classes (a secondary acro class each week) to develop additional tumbling and contortion skills and/or our Advanced Ballet/Pointe program which is a 4th class each week focusing on pointe work, variations and ballet fundamentals.
