TAME Dance Academy’s curriculum is designed to teach a young dancer how to behave in a professional environment. The training is conservatory–style, with a heightened focus on technique and artistry. Daily instruction in ballet, jazz and contemporary technique are required to provide stronger foundations for the supplemental courses in hip-hop, tap and acrobatics. In the studio, each student is taught how to show proper respect to any instructor and how to behave in differing classroom situations. The TAME student will complete their training as a well-rounded individual, knowledgeable in all techniques and able to succeed in a professional dance environment.
