We got our start during the summer of 2010. Tiffany Mayer began the Gazella Dance Studio with 38 dancers in only 4 different groups. Now our students range in age from 3 to 18 and skill from beginner to advanced. We offer classes in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, pointe, jazz funk, lyrical, and musical theater.
After 5 years as Gazella Dance Studio on Jordan Rd. it's with a heavy but excited heart that we move to a larger studio. With the move we changed our name to "Tiffany's School of Dance & Performing Arts Center. We are excited to grow our programming and continue to teach our students.
At TSDPAC you can take class at a recreational level we call "Studio" as well as our Competition level classes. Our Studio classes focus on core technique training while learning unique routines for our Holiday Show and our Spring Recital. These classes are where all our students start and learn foundations of each discipline; they are the heart of TSDPAC. Our Competition level classes are available to students meeting the requirements to audition. These groups compete and attend conventions throughout the year to continue their passion for dance into new venues and experiences. All our students participate in community events throughout the year here in Skaneateles, Syracuse, and surrounding areas.
Our students practice in 2 separate studios that were all recently renovated in our building. At TSDPAC we strive to offer our students and their families a clean, safe environment where their dancers will learn amazing technique, timing, balance, flexibility, composure, and presence on stage. We value our relationship with our students and hope that when they graduate from TSDPAC they will have learned more than just how to dance on stage, but how to perform in life.
