A shy, uncertain yet curious, little girl struggles to open the door to the studio where she will take her first dance class. The very same little girl who we watch four years later, skips with the excitement of another new season, down the corridor as she enters the studio as a much more determined, and disciplined child than we had seen before. It's not long before the front door opens once again, only to find the same girl, six years older, with the same smile, and the same thrill at the thought of the start of another dance season. Only this time she is confident, she is responsible, and she is independent.
For many dancers, TDI becomes a second home as they continue to walk through our doors day after day...year after year. Quality training aside, we are fortunate to watch our dancers grow into successful individuals who display the values and morals that seem to be less apparent these days. Individuals who understand the meaning of commitment, and the significance of loyalty.
Dance Decades is an incentive course available to both Competitive and Recreational students who have made TDI their second home. The program is designed to reward students and their parents in scholarship fashion, for their endless support and dedication to the studio. In a world where integrity and character can easily be lost, we are happy to be able to compensate those who share in our beliefs and continue to instill moral values in their children; our future.
Awards are presented annually for Five Year Membership, and Ten Year Membership. Upon completion of your tenth consecutive full season, students become a Dance Decades Member.
DANCE DECADES MEMBERSHIP
Once a student has become a Dance Decades Member, he or she is entitled to dance tuition-free for the remainder of their enrolment at Toronto Dance Industry. Tuition-free classes and rewards are based on the past registration of the student.
Students of the Recreational and Part-Time Competitive Programs will receive their Dance Decades Membership after ten consecutive years of enrolment at TDI. This membership entitles the dancer to a one hour class, free of charge, from the Recreational Program for the remainder of their enrolment at TDI until the age of 19 years.
Students of the Full-Time Competitive Program will receive their Dance Decades Company Membership after ten consecutive years of enrolment in the Full-Time Competitive Program at TDI.
