TMC welcomes and encourages differently-abled children and adults to join our classes.  Many of our classes suit various abilities.  We will work with you to find the appropriate class to fit your particular needs. Call us to discuss your needs.


So you’re not in participating in the show? What to do…?

Even if you are not preparing for one of our opportunities to perform, it is important to continue your training. Sitting out a class will cause you to lose skills and may result in your being held back a level.


All classes participating in the show will work on basic skills and technique while leaning show choreography. You will continue to gain strength, flexibility, coordination and new skills.

If class time is used for rehearsal and you are not performing but enrolled in a class, you are entitled to make-up the class. See the front desk for details particular to your class.
