“Studying at TPA is very special to me. Ever since I was young, I had wanted to be coached by Lucinda Dunn. My dream came true! I love all aspects of the full time program as it is very diverse and covers all different styles that we need to be a professional dancer. TPA is very welcoming and I felt that helped me feel comfortable when I first moved when I was just 13. I have made a lot of great friends during my time here and I won’t forget the memories that the academy has created for me.” - Lucinda Worthing Shore Current Level 2 full time student
