Dancer Evaluations

Dancers receive invitations to train at TDA Prep with a customized plan after completing an Evaluation.

Our Evaluations start with a short conversation about your dancer's goals with dance, both short and longterm.

From there your dancer will work one-on-one with one of our Directors, in a one-hour training session consisting of Classical Ballet, Horton, and Graham Technique (based on your goals).


This one hour training session will be followed by a 30 minute conference with the dancer, parents, and any other major stakeholders to create a plan of action for your dancer to achieve their goals. Our Director will discuss the Evaluation, recommendations, and answer any questions you have.

We're excited to be a part of your dancer's journey.

While In-Person always provides a unique experience, we work hard to insure that both virtual and in-person experiences provide an equally rewarding experience for our clients.

  • Gain a clear idea of where your dancer is in relationship to their goals
  • Capitalize on access to an unbiased expert dance coach
  • Leave with a clear plan that works for your dancer.

In preparation for your dancer's Evaluation...

  • We'll ask questions to get to know your dancer. Classical Ballet goals will yield a different evaluation than contemporary or college goals, so it's important for you to be as specific as possible.
  • We'll ask that you submit any recent dance videos of your dancer that you have available for us to view.
