The Dance Conservatory

Classes are held weekly, Monday through Friday afternoons, evenings, and Saturdays.  The TDC program has been designed to identify, nurture, develop, and train the community's children in the art of dance. We allow students the opportunity to develop their artistic potential offering training at various levels of pre-collegiate, pre-professional, and the joy of learning dance to forever be a dance enthusiast.

Multiple disciplines are offered: ballet, tap, jazz, and contemporary.  Specialty classes, including Musical Theater Dance, Acrobatics, and Hip Hop, allow dancers to further their skills for specific venues. Classes such as Yoga, Pilates, and Stretch/Conditioning are designed to help cross train dancers and athletes so they can be the strongest and healthiest possible.  

2014-2015 Class Descriptions

Dance for Athletes - For the dance enthusiast who has a rigorous athletic schedule, the Teen Class schedule allows a student to participate during their off season. This opportunity is great cross training and will allow you to do it all!

Dance for Pre-Collegiates - In addition, programs like the TDC Company offer more experienced dancers the opportunity to study intensely during school. Dance Élan Company is a technical competitive team. Audition is required and a minimum of three technique classes and two electives are required.
