The vision of The Dance Space Company is to excel an artist’s passion for dance while creating a positive dance home for your child. While training at TDS, students will learn many aspects of dance. They will be taught the history of dance, musicality, composition of choreography and the elements of improvisation. Dancers will also experience cross training with yoga and pilates and learn to balance the mental challenges of dance. Our faculty will strengthen a dancer’s mind, body and soul. Dance is not just about learning steps, it is also the journey of discovering strengths, weaknesses, discipline, and leadership. Our outstanding faculty prepares each dancer to be confident artists with the hope they will embark on things never thought possible. Whether it’s Booker T. Washington, high school drill team, college pom, a professional dance company, or Cirque shows, our TDS Alum are making us proud; your dancer could be next.
Time commitment can be tailored around each individual family, school, or personal life. We have some dancers that dance 15+ hours a week and we have some that dance 4 hours per week. Our class structure allows students to add on multiple classes to their minimum required hours. We have Mini's 7-8 yr olds, Junior's 9-12 yr olds, Teen's 11-14 yr olds, and HS. Each age group has a different set of required hours levels.
Classes and rehearsals are usually all done during the week and have weekends off. Teams attend 1 Convention, 3 competitions, and our annual end of year recital. Hours range from 2-6 hours per week.
Classes are done during the week and rehearsals are on Saturdays. Teams attend 1 Convention, 3-4 competitions, and our annual end of year recital. Hours range from 4-8 hours per week.

Evaluations are during our summer intensives. To be considered for Company, a dancer must attend 2-3 (depending on age) intensives in July and August. This allows our instructors to fully evaluate each dancer in each style and discipline. Dancers will be notified via email with additonal information on how to proceed.
The Dance Space works to evoke passion in the heart of every dancer enabling them to
build a foundation for themselves in the midst of the art of dance. Dance is more than
just training. It is a journey of great discovery and growth; something truly valued at
The Dance Space.
The great thing about our program is any dancer has the flexibility to add hours on to their minimum recquired hours. Tuition is based on how many hours a dancer takes. The more hours, the higher the tuition. We do have an Unlimited Hours option for those dancers who dance 7 or more hours a week.
Competition Fees, Costume Fees, Rehearsal Fees... These vary depending on how many group dances a dancer participates in. The more dances, the higher the costs.
-Competitions are an additional performance opportunity. As a dancer,
you put in countless hours of work in the classroom and in return are on stage for minutes. Performance is the reward for all of that hard work. It is also something you have to practice; it isn’t easy portraying an emotion while doing complicated choreography. Competitions not only allow dancers to get on stage but also practice the art of performance.
-It is exposure to what other dancers are doing. It gets them out of their “studio bubble” and allows them to see other dancers their age, different choreography, and different styles of dance.
-It allows dancers to have a tangible goal (trophies/titles). Some students work harder and smarter when they have something specific they are working toward.
-They are fun. Not only do the dancers get to perform but they also get to
spend the whole day/weekend with their dance friends. During their down time, they get to talk about whatever kids/teens talk about, go out to eat, get ready together, and who can forget the giant dance party on
stage before awards.
