TDC Dance Companies

For the 2021-22 season, we are excited to offer a variety of programming for every dancer, every age and every level! Whether your dancer is ready to train for the professional stage or looking for a fun and positive environment to grow their skills in, we have the program for you.

The Dallas Conservatory (TDC) Pre-Professional division provides world-class instruction in dance, acting, voice, and musical theatre for students aged 8-18, with the goal of preparing for a possible professional career in the performing arts. Pre-pros engage in a rigorous weekly course load of 10-20 training and rehearsal hours, and enjoy many performance and competition opportunities throughout the year including Nutcracker and YAGP (dancers) and Spring Musical (actor/singers and dancers). 

TDC’s Studio Company allows dancers needing more flexibility in their schedule to train and perform in a multitude of styles while maintaining TDC’s high level of excellence.  Studio Company’s weekly class requirements maintain between 6-10 training hours. 

For younger, passionate performers, Mini Company provides a wonderful outlet to grow and develop skills as both individuals and dancers.  Mini Company students learn discipline, technical skills, artistry, team accountability, and the skill of projecting joy and positivity. Mini Company meets twice a week 4:15-7:15 PM. 

ADULT DANCERS: Please contact us for current performance opportunities

Selected dancers will represent both Frisco and Dallas locations. Dancers will rehearse primarily near their base location.


The Dallas Conservatory’s Mini Company (Ages 6-8)

For young artists who show talent and drive, we create an atmosphere for students to develop the skills that will ensure a rewarding experience performing as an important member of a team (“company” as we say in dance). Mini Company dancers learn discipline, technical skills, artistry, team accountability and the skill of projecting joy and positivity.

Mini Company dancers have special performance opportunities and participate in regional convention/competitions where they compete as a company and take classes from inspiring Master Teachers.

Students follow an advanced track of classes designed to prepare, encourage, and grow in the art of Dance. See requirements below.

The Dallas Conservatory’s Pre-Professional Company (Ages 8-18)

Since 2011, TDC’s Ore-Professional performing company has dazzled audiences and impressed judges with spirited, memorable performances in all genres of dance, from classical ballet at the Majestic Theater,   to hip hop at the Mavericks’ games! No matter the venue, our performances are rich with the technique, artistry, and passion that is born of world-class training and detailed rehearsals.

The Dallas Conservatory’s Studio Company (Ages 9-18)

We are thrilled to offer an additional performance track for our students at The Dallas Conservatory! The Studio Company is geared towards dancers needing flexibility in their class schedule to study a multitude of styles, while having the ability to be involved in extra-curricular programs at school. Dancers will have the opportunity to take many different technique classes, learn challenging choreography, compete and perform at regional events, as well as other community outreach performances at a level of excellence that is standard at The Dallas Conservatory.
