What's New at Theatre Dance Centre

We have had such successful productions this past year and we are adding some good stuff for parents.

1) Parets will receive comps when they volunteer for the shows

2) The tuition is capped for families at 5 classes per week. In other words, 5 or more is the same as unlimited. So Mum can take a ballet class or join a production at no extra charge, once you reach the five class per week you can take as many classes as you like.

3) We will continue with the distinguished guest series that we started and continue to invite professionals who are currently working in performing arts to give workshops, come talk to students, all exclusive to current students. We have had exciting guests in the last few years ad will continue with more. Stay tuned!
