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. TDCI The Pathway to Self Fulfillment

News in brief...
Important Notice
With regard to registrations for competitors who wish to compete in Championship Events. These must be applied for at least 6 weeks before the Championship, and if your registration card is not received 3 weeks prior to the event then you must contact the General Secretary to enquire if the application has been lost in the post or the card has been lost  in returning to the competitor. This will then give sufficient time to get a replacement to you. Organisers of Championships are not allowed to let competitors dance in any TDCI Championship unless they produce their registration card for the current year. All cards are valid for one year ( 1st January until 31st December ). Please apply for your registration card ASAP to avoid any disappointment at the Event!
