Introducing TADA's Ballet-Focused Training Program

TADA’s Ballet Conservatory aims to shape students of all ages into strong, confident, skilled ballet dancers through training and performance. Membership requires a higher level of discipline, a greater demand on training time, and a promise of commitment from both dancers and parents to uphold the rules and requirements of the Conservatory.  Fulfilling the requirements, along with the dancer’s applied and focused participation, will create more determined, technical ballet dancers who are ready for a future in classical and contemporary ballet..
