2014-15 Solos, Duos and Trios

GENERAL INFORMATION

In our 2014-15 Season there are 2 levels of Solos, Duos and Trios.  Some are Competitive which means the students will take their dances to competitions.  Others are Showcase only.  This means the student will get the experience and personal attention that comes from creating a solo, duo or trio and they will only perform the dance at the TDA Performing Company Showcase in February.

ANYONE entering 4th grade or older in the 2014-15 academic year, who is participating in the full Performing Company, may participate in a Solo.  Dancers entering 3rd grade or older, who are participating in the full Performing Company, may participate in a Duo or Trio.

Solos
ANYONE entering 4th grade or older in the 2014-15 academic year, who is participating in the full Performing Company, can participate in a Solo.  The TDA Instructors will determine if your dancer will have a Showcase or Competition Solo, the style of dance and the TDA Instructor your student will be working with.  Requests are certainly encouraged and welcome.  The Choreography Fee for a Solo will be $699 whether it is a Competition or Showcase Solo.  This fee will be charged over a 10 month period, September-June.  Your dancer will receive eight 30-minute rehearsals with an instructor assigned by TDA.  These rehearsals will be arranged between the Instructor and the dancer.  Once your dancer’s session is complete they can continue to rehearse with their Instructor at a rate of $55 per hour or $30 per 1/2 hour at the discretion of the Instructor.  All of the solos will perform in the TDA Performing Company Showcase.  Following the Showcase, the TDA Instructors will review all Showcase solos and determine if any are “Competition Ready.”  Those Showcase solos that are ready for competition will be invited to compete their solo during our 2014-15 competition season.  Costumes for Competition Solos will be handled through TDA and will range from $200-$225.  Costumes for Showcase Solos will be the responsibility of the dancer’s family.  If your dancer would like to participate in a solo, and has not yet registered for one, please email Robbie and she will be able to assist you.

Duos/Trios
ANYONE entering 4th grade or older in the 2014-15 academic year, who is participating in the full Performing Company can participate in a Duo or Trio.  The style of dance, TDA Instructor your student will be working with and combination of dancers for duos and trios is at the discretion of TDA but requests are certainly encouraged and welcome.  The Choreography Fee for a Duo or Trio will be $899 divided between the participants whether it is a Competition or Showcase Duo/Trio.  This fee will be charged over a 10 month period, September-June.  Your dancer will receive eight 30-minute rehearsals with an instructor assigned by TDA.  These rehearsals will be arranged between the Instructor and the dancers.  Once your dancer’s session is complete they can continue to rehearse with their Instructor at a rate of $55 per hour or $30 per 1/2 hour (divided by the participants) at the discretion of the Instructor.  All of the Duos and Trios will perform in the TDA Performing Company Showcase.  Costumes for Competition Duos and Trios will be handled through TDA and will range from $200-$225.  Costumes for Showcase Duos/Trios will be the responsibility of the dancer’s family.  Registrations for Duos and Trios are currently being accepted, through Friday, August 29.  Please click here to submit your registration form.
