The Dance Avenue Team

The TDA Competition team travels the Midwest and beyond highlighting the skill and tradition of our studio. TDA is home to numerous awards both locally and nationally receiving kudos for performance and entertainment value. It's our goal as a team to be ambassadors not only of TDA but the art of dance as a sport. As in any athletic activity, sportsmanship develops character and introduces children to the virtues of team spirit. 

Many of our TDA Competition Team Dancers have gone on to dance at the collegiate level and beyond for the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, Grandview University, EDGE Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles, CA and more.

Auditions

The TDA Team is formed through a nomination process. Teachers recommend or nominate students who display exceptional work ethic, talent, attitude and potential for growth.

 

Each summer TDA holds a Summer Study program for these nominated dancers which includes ballet, tumbling, technique, strength & conditioning classes as well as combinations in genres such as jazz, tap, hip-hop, musical theatre, heels, contemporary, modern, lyrical and more!

The culmination of the TDA Summer Study are the team auditions which are held in
 August.
