The Road Map to a successful Career in Theatre Dance Where Champions are made, Ambitions are Realised and Dreams fulfilled.  TDCI is an umbrella organisation specialising in the administration of all the theatre dance disciplines (The FA of Theatre Dance). For decades the member organisations have been responsible for the success and high level of dance education and training, as we know it today.  The ongoing work of the TDCI council and the member organisations includes: 	Constant review of of technique and evolving dance trends  	Recognition of dance schools and academies. 	Providing recognised teaching qualifications in dance by examination. 	Appointement of qualified adjudicators. 	Formulation of rules for championships and festivals. 	Granting of approved TDCI National and Regional championship titles. 	When funds permit to award scholarships.  The experience gained from the study of dance is invaluable. It develops confidence, commitment and self esteem. There is no better preparation a young person can obtain to prepare for the Theatre of life, that audition, and the all important job interview.
