What we Expect from Team Dancers and Parents 
We establish rigorous class, rehearsal and competition expectations to create an equal opportunity for all dancers, to promote and build a community atmosphere and to foster personal growth and an understanding of commitment to one’s self and to others. We look for attentive, diligent, responsible and focused dancers who consistently demonstrate a respectful energy with not only TPDA faculty and staff but with peers, guest faculty, and parents.   We believe these characteristics are essential for success as a dancer and as a person.  

 

Dancers must,

  • Attend all competitions and the spring performances. 

  • Maintain excellent attendance for class and rehearsals.  Missed classes must be made up. 

  • Display proper sportsmanship at the studio, studio related events and all competitions.  

 

Dancers and parents must,

  • Support TPDA, its dance teams and its faculty at all times.  

  • Follow instructions from faculty and be respectful of decisions made at the Director’s discretion.
