REGISTERING FOR THE TDA 2023/2024 SEASON
The 2023/2024 season registration is now open.
Classes are offered in Thorndale at:
115 Harrison St.
The following highlights some information about our season registration.
A non-refundable registration fee of $20.00 per family is required at the time of registration.
COSTUMES & SHOWCASE
There is a $95.00 non-refundable costume fee for each class a student is enrolled in with the exception of technique classes. This costume is used for the year-end Showcase. Costume fees are due at registration.
The costume fee may or may not cover the entire cost of the costume. Where the cost exceeds the deposit families will be billed for the amount owing.
Costumes are ordered from Canadian and American companies. We order costumes in the sizes closest to the dancer’s measurements. We cannot guarantee a perfect fit. Parents/guardians will be responsible for any necessary sizing alterations, or will be responsible for the cost of an additional costume should they request another size be ordered in.
Regular season classes participate in our year-end Showcase, with the exception of technique and adult classes. Tickets are required to watch our Showcase and will be available for purchase closer to the performance dates.
Proper dance attire is required for each class. Uniform information is available here. Dancers must abide by TDA’s dress code in order to participate in classes.
CLASS PLACEMENT & CHANGES
Placement of students in classes is at the sole discretion of the TDA's Artistic Director. TDA reserves the right to limit class sizes and to cancel or change class times based on availability, enrolment or at the studio director’s discretion. Alternatively, TDA reserves the right to shorten classes that are semi-private.
