UADC TA Tryouts

Do you love dancing? Do you want to share your love of dancing with others? Do you admire your teaching assistants and instructors? Have you ever wanted to join their ranks? Well then this summer's your chance! TA tryouts will be beginning very soon, and the sign-up form is below. All you have to do is ask the Executive at your class for a form, and maybe chat up some of your TAs or instructors for an idea of what it's like!

Still reading? Our TAs meet Sundays to prepare for classes, and "work" one evening a week at their class. In exchange, they get three hours of professional instruction each week from Delphine Romaire... plus get into all of our Newcomer 1, Newcomer 2, and Pre-Bronze classes that they want, as a bonus!

Unsure or never done this before?  Not a problem!  Some of our TAs started after taking Newcomer classes. You provide the good attitude, willingness to learn and help, and ability to learn quickly, and we'll provide the training you need to shine!

TA tryouts will be on the following afternoons 2-4pm:

  • June 29 - Central Lions (Please arrive 15 min early)
  • July 6 - St. John's Cultural Centre
  • July 20 - St. John's Cultural Centre
  • August 10 - St. John's Cultural Centre
  • August 17 - St. John's Cultural Centre
  • August 25 - St. John's Cultural Centre
