You missed out!

My name is Preston Miller and I'm the host of the Dance Parent Workshop!

I'm the Director of TDA Prep, a training platform for dancers and parents across the country. I graduated from the Ailey/Fordham BFA Program in 2010 and started coaching and choreographing across the dance world. There would be days where I would coach Principal Ballerinas and other days where I prepared dancers for 6-wks on a movie set. When I started meeting dance parents I realized that dance education doesn't necessarily lead to the career that dancers and parents believe they are investing in.

That's when the Dance Parent Workshop was born!

Navigating studio drama? Been there. Trying to identify the best college for your dancer? Been there, too. From competitions & conventions to colleges & companies, the dance world has a lot to navigate. For a parent that has never lived it, that can be a tall order. The future of dance is in your hands (and homes) and The Dance Parent Workshop helps dozens of parents every month and now, it's here for you!

I'm glad that you're here.



Day 1: Pursuing a Career in Dance

What does it mean when your dancer says that they want to become a professional? How do studios, competitions, and coaches all lead to the big goal? How much do professional dancers even make?

Day 1 is about giving you the info a dance parent needs to know! Bring you questions, Q&A to follow!

Day 2: College for dancers

Around the age of 18 most students have decisions ot make and dancers are no different. How do you elevate your training to the next level? Which college is right for you? Should you be auditioning for a company instead?

We're here to help you and your dancer through that process! Bring you questions, Q&A to follow!
