The Conservatory Program
Our Signature Dance & Theater Classes for Grades 2-12
Premier technique-based training in dance, musical theater, and acting starts here for the recreational, competitive, and pre-professional student. The Conservatory program provides students with a year-long curriculum that
focuses on technique and skill building. Classes are a wonderful way to gain the skills needed to be a successful performer! The rhythm and consistency of a weekly class contributes to individual progress and our five-level
curriculum and low ratios are some of the many perks of the program! Students perform twice throughout the year at the studio in our Winter Preview and Spring Showcase. Choose from a wide variety of classes to fit your goals and schedule!
Many of our classes progress as a unit over time, developing an arts community that encourages friendships and growth.
"We can't thank you enough for the many years of growth and enrichment at TPAC. Sydney found her home there and while she fell into her comfort zone, you consistently pushed her to her limits and helped her confidence soar. Thank you."
