Overview and Auditions

The Dallas Conservatory: Overview

The Dallas Conservatory (TDC) is a nationally recognized private performing arts school for talented and serious students ages 8-18 of Dance (emphasis on ballet with all genres offered); Voice (musical theatre and classical); and Acting  (stage/TV/film). Founded in 2010 by Jacqueline Porter, TDC offers world-class training and performance opportunities to prepare for a possible professional career.

Students are selected by audition for their professional potential and mental readiness to embark on the vigorous training required to turn their passion for the arts into a profession. TDC students are trained, monitored and mentored to be competitive for 1) admission into America’s top arts universities, summer programs and apprentice companies, 2) college and summer scholarship offers, and 3) professional contracts.





The Dallas Conservatory currently shares studios, administration and faculty with Park Cities Studios.  It includes a daytime education program with flexible academics, allowing pre-professional and professional students to reduce training and academics to just eight hours daily, from an average of twelve hours, and to allow flexibility for professional projects and travel. The academic program, begun in Fall 2015, follows the gold standard of excellence already achieved by arts and sports academies worldwide.

A capital campaign is set to commence in Spring 2017 for The Dallas Conservatory’s new  campus, targeted for completion by 2020. The Dallas Conservatory of the future will draw from an international pool of applicants from 4th-12th grades, and house a full spectrum of the creative arts: dance, theatre, voice, music, visual arts, film and writing.
