Please review the 2019-2020 TDC Competition Team Contract before considering auditioning for the competition team.  The contract details the expectations, time and financial commitments for each dancer and family.

The audition panel is comprised of the Studio Director, TDC Instructors & select outside Choreographers.  They will decide the placement of the dancers for all groups, duets, and trios.  Our primary goal is to create groups that we feel will do well, both for the sake of the team and each individual dancer involved. Being part of a team requires everyone involved to: agree to, accept and embrace the fact that each and every routine your child is in will bring them benefits in some way, shape, or form.  The Director & Instructors want EVERY single one of our dancers to be the very best they can be so that we can build the very best team possible.
