The aim of TADA is to create well rounded, versatile performers who can adapt their vocal, movement, and acting skills to a variety of performance opportunities. Our 10 TADA students will receive individualized instruction from degreed professionals based on personal goals and strength and weakness assessments. TADA students will be taught to function as a key player within a supportive ensemble and learn to engage in a positive, helpful, and collaborative manner. TADA student will leave each semester armed with a deeper understanding of their craft, an appreciation for fellow performers, and a deeper love of the performing arts.
Who is TADA For?
TADA is for any performer who knows what they want and is willing to put in the time and practice to achieve it. The ideal candidate will be able to sit down with us today and share their personal performance goals. In general, ideal candidates will be ages 10-18, but we reserve the right to accept younger students based on the ability of each candidate to express to us a clear understanding of their specific goals. The ideal candidate will be one who is excited to take classes in all three disciplines and is looking for a way to save money by bundling services and working collaboratively with a small group of no more than 10.
