TDC Performance Team Tucker

The Directors of the TDC Performance Team are passionate about building up, inspiring, and educating young people to reach for and accomplish their dreams through their experiences in dance.

Our promise is to give our dancers the very best (and most fun) performance dance experience they’ll ever have!


Why Do We Offer Performance Team?

We offer Performance Team to take dancers to the next level in their confidence, discipline, collaboration skills, health, and overall dance technique development. While there are many reasons why we’ve chosen to offer a performance program, we can sum them all up within these three overarching objectives:

1. Training with the benefits of performance.

Because dancers participate in additional classes, rehearsals, and performances at an intensive level, our performance dancers are spending many hours honing their technique and skills. Even more importantly, they are also developing their artistry, establishing their commitment, growing their resilience, practicing their sportsmanship, and building their teamwork skills. Through these character qualities, they are forming lifelong habits and learning how to cultivate a forward-thinking, positive mindset.

2. Working on goals bigger than yourself.

As part of a group, each team member is learning to contribute to a larger purpose – to raise everyone’s potential. That purpose starts out with learning choreography together and then shifts into “practicing and polishing” mode, striving for excellence so that when the performance event arrives, everyone on the team is contributing their best effort. There is something truly special about the personal wins that come with dancing your heart out and supporting your team. 

3. Preparing to possibly pursue dance in the future.

The in-depth focus on dance that our performance team offers serves as a platform for our students to consider pursuing dance long-term. They might think about pursuing a professional performance career, studying dance in college, or exploring teaching or choreography. Dance-related careers may pique their interest too, such as photography, journalism, and physical therapy. Being immersed in dance at a young age not only inspires our students to think about the future, it shapes their curiosity about which educational direction might be right for them. 

We believe success is all about each child’s personal growth! If the performance commitment seems like a good fit for your dancer, we would love to provide them with that experience. We invite you to connect with us with any questions you have about the program!
