A CURATED EXPERIENCE

THREE TRAINING TRACKS

The Choreography House recognizes that Scholarship Dancers have a range of day-time occupations and a delicate balance must be reached to commit to this program. As a result, three Training Tracks options are available to accommodate a variety of schedules. In addition, three Program Tuition options are available to accommodate a variety of budgets.

  • PERFORMANCE TRACK Approximately 15 hours per month
  • PROFESSIONAL TRACK Approximately 25 hours per month
  • CHAMPIONSHIP TRACK Approximately 35 hours per month

PAST AWARDS AND PRIZES

Beginning in 2015, one Dancer was awarded Scholarship Student of the Year for outstanding performance and training excellence during the program. This Dancer was selected for going above and beyond the minimum requirements to be of service to the studio, to the program and to the community of Dancers at TCH. To align better with the values and mission of the studio, Scholarship Student of the Year will no longer be included in the program and the final award will be presented to the Class of 2019.
