What We Do

TPDA wants each dancer to receive the level of training and attention that they need. Our leveled program ensures that our dancers are in the appropriate class, which will help them progress at a consistent rate.

How It Works

We ask that all dancers interested in taking leveled ballet at TPDA participate in a placement class. In these classes, our instructors will evaluate each dancer and place them in the appropriate class.

Starting during the 23-24 dance season, we will be combining several levels of ballet into Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced classes.


My daughter started dance this year and absolutely loves it. She found a class that teaches her the basics and gives her a chance to use some skills from gymnastics! Everyone has been very sweet & supportive!
