The Midwest’s Premier Category Championship Circuit
TDI honors the rich tradition of category competition in competitive dance, recognizing the unique artistic qualities and diverse technical demands of these separate and distinct styles of dance, each warranting their own stage and each deserving of their own awards.
TDI offers an educationally based competition circuit like no other! Here, artistic and technical development is cultivated and achievement is measured against a comprehensive, yet easy to understand rubric. Coaches excel, teams thrive and parents respect the results and appreciate the experience their student performers are given.
Teams are provided real-time, audio/visual evaluations in digital format from separately trained and certified artistic and technical judges using separate artistic and technical score sheets identifying 10 separate areas of evaluation. Coaches and team members are afforded even more in depth information about their scores and critiques at our post-contest critique sessions.
As a non-profit company, TDI strives to keep its fees reasonable without compromising quality. Our staff boasts 150 years of combined experience as former performers, coaches and choreographers and is dedicated to preserving the traditions of competitive dance, nurturing new trends and respecting competitive dance as a unique combination of art, technique and sport.

Honor the Tradition…. TDI
