TAC “NEXT STEPS” PREP

 

Another benefit to the TAC Preprofessional Company, is the support high school students and graduating seniors receive from the TAC faculty in preparation for their next steps. We believe dance will take any individual far and encourage the TAC students to utilize dance for their next steps whether they choose to pursue dance professionally or take a path into another career or field of study.

College Prep/Post-Grad Programs:

  • Letters of Recommendation from TAC teachers

  • Solo choreography for college applications or college auditions

  • Filming for applications (for students wishing to major in Dance or another field)

  • Arts supplement portfolio prep with TAC teachers

  • Alumni connections at reputable Universities

Professional Dance Career:

  • Agency connections/recommendations

  • Dance reel and resumé assistance

  • Individual mentorship for entering the dance industry

  • Audition tips and practice

  • Introductions to industry choreographers and directors

Grad Track

 

TAC's Grad Track is an avenue for rising high school seniors who wish to finish out their preprofessional dance education without competing. By taking on a reduced class schedule that still allows for high quality training, Grad Track dancers are eligible to receive assistance from TAC Faculty for post-grad next steps whether that be college application and submission support, job references, letters of recommendation, material curation for portfolios and supplements, filming and photography needs and more. Grad Track dancers are included in The Artist Collective's monthly Community Events with the TAC Company and are permitted to train in private lessons with TAC Faculty if desired. Please email info@theartistcollectivela.com for further information and pricing for this opportunity! 

 

**Only high school seniors entering 12th grade qualify**

Our faculty have all worked in the professional world within the dance and entertainment industry as well as an array of other fields. We aim to support all TAC students in their specific post-graduate goals and assist them in utilizing their dance experience to help them stand out in a group of candidates for schools, jobs, abroad programs and internships.
