Attendance/Tardiness: As in any area of study, attendance is most important. We want our dancers to have every opportunity to "shine" at Recital, so please be aware that students missing too many classes during the year may not perform at their best during Recital.
Food, Drink, Gum or candy are not allowed on the dance floor. All food, drink, etc. should remain in the Reception Area only.
Private lessons are available for all dancers who have missed numerous classes and need to catch up for Recital.

The Front Desk or your dance Instructor can provide Information on pricing and scheduling.
TCDA. reserves the right to change class days, times and instructors due to enrollment demands or other schedule conflicts.
Parents/guardians should make yourself aware of deadlines, activity and financial. Information is easily obtained through any TCDA staff member, chalk board notices, monthly newsletters, website, Facebook & parent notices. Please inform TCDA of any credit card/bank account, address or phone number changes so that we can better serve you and your child.
The well-being of our students and their families is of utmost concern to us. TDCA, cannot be responsible for providing before or after class care for dancers. If you are running a little late, call the studio so we can keep your young dancer indoors.
During times of success and discouragement, parental support is vital. In these days of instant gratification, dance is an art form that requires old fashioned hard work and dedication. The discipline required by dance comes not only from the dancer, but also from his/her parents. Regular attendance in scheduled classes is extremely important. Willing participation and eagerness to take what he/she is given and make it his/her own are qualities that will carry your child through many lessons in life.
