Project Performance Company
Our Performance Company is for dancers looking for more intensive dance training. Our Performance Team will compete in 3 Regional Dance Competitions per Season with the possibility of a National Competition. (This will be discussed at our September parent meeting)
Team members age 7 and up are required to take 2 ballet classes per week as well as each subject that they wish to compete in.
For example, if you wish to compete in a lyrical dance, you must take a lyrical technique class.
Our team members are required to participate on our 1 week Intensive in August. This intensive is used to help strengthen technique, learn new styles and to give TDP Staff an opportunity to place dancers in appropriate classes for choreography for our 2018-2019 Season.
Project Performance Company Dance Intensive is August 20th-24th from 4pm-8pm. For Petites, Juniors, Teens and Seniors Cost is $150.00
For our Mini Team, cost is $75.00 with class time from 4pm-6pm.

Each Team Member is required to buy a Studio Jacket to be worn at competition and conventions.
Saturday Rehearsals and Technique:
We will use Saturdays for additional rehearsals and choreography when needed. When we have a Saturday Rehearsal we will give you as much notice as possible but at least 1 month. There will never be a fee for additional rehearsals.
On the Saturdays we do not have rehearsal we will offer a “drop in” technique class. This class will not be required but encouraged for those who want to improve their technique. Every Monday we will announce what classes are offered the upcoming Saturday and who is teaching. You can pay the day of class and the fee is $30.00 for all classes.
Conventions are optional and we will suggest a few we would like to take our team to at our parent meeting. You are allowed to attend additional conventions; we just ask that we register you through The Dance Project.
Parent meeting will be Saturday, September 15th. At this meeting competition dates and additional information will be handed out. This is also a nice chance for the parents and the team members to get to know each other! The Dance Project wants to encourage the true meaning of “TEAM” and would like for our dancers to feel like they are part of a Family, not just a dance school.
