TPDC Gives Back

We at Turning Pointe Dance Center recognize how fortunate we are to be doing what we're doing, and we believe in giving back to our local community. Over the last several years, TPDC has raised almost $13,000 for the Make a Wish Foundation, both at our first annual charity show and by participating in their Walk-A-Thons for several years. Furthermore, we have raised several thousands of dollars at our additional annual charity showcases:


  • $2,500 for Noah Roman, a local boy who lost his entire family in a devastating fire;
  • $3,300 for the Green Drakkoman Foundation;
  • $5,540 for Laney Robillard, a local girl battling brain cancer.


Additionally, we sponsor a charity during the holiday season as well. Two years ago we collected personal care and other necessary items and created blessing bags with them to donate to local shelters and police stations. Last year we adopted a family and collected dozens of holiday gifts for them to make their holiday season a little brighter.


This year, our students are eager to give back again. To start, we are raising money for New York Oncology/Hematology Community Cancer Foundation at our fifth annual charity show, which is being held April 13, 2019 at 3:00 pm at Genet Elementary School in East Greenbush, NY. Please join us!

Happy 11th Anniversary TPDC!

We at TPDC believe very strongly in three core values that create a strong foundation for every type of dancer:

  • Technique
  • Artistry
  • Family

All of our TPDC instructors and assistants pride themselves on teaching proper technique to each and every one of our dancers. We recognize that proper dance technique is integral to our dancers being able to further their dance careers in whichever way they may choose, and we also realize how important solid technique is to injury prevention.


Accompanied by our emphasis on solid and proper dance technique, we take every opportunity to let our artistry in choreography shine on stage. All of our instructors thrive in the creative environment of dance choreography, and we all love to watch our young dancers bring our visions to life. We also enjoy passing the love of choreography on to our older, more experienced dancers by teaching them how to choreograph their own routines. 


And finally, we view our dance studio as an extension of our families. Over the last 10 years, we have welcomed dozens upon dozens of families into our fold to create a solid "dance family" here on Hemlock Street. We adore every family who joins our nest and we foster the same values that people encourage and teach at home: respect, acceptance and kindness. We do not tolerate bullying - in fact we hold in very high regard our anti-bullying policy, which we take incredibly seriously. We treat every dancer with the same amount of care and compassion, and we vow to do everything we can to make sure all who join our dance family have fun and feel welcomed and appreciated.

Welcome all new and returning students!! We are excited for our 11th season! We have some fun things planned for our 11th season, so stay tuned for games, raffles and giveaways this year!
