Quote Marks
"TDC feels like home, because everyone there is so kind. We really have to thank our incredible teachers for that because they instill in us that we are all here because we love dance. It’s a completely judgment free zone and everyone is truly their authentic selves. Everyone cares so much about each other and that is what really makes it feel like home. I’ve never been a part of anything in my life that makes me feel so safe and so welcomed as when I’m at TDC. TDC is such a supportive and loving space, it’s so incredibly hard to put into words what makes it home because everything about it makes it feel like home."
