Talent Identified Program (TIP)


New dance students between the ages of nine and 11 who show high potential for successful training at COCA may audition for the Talent Identified Program, which provides dancewear, door-to-door transportation to classes, homework assistance and a 100% tuition scholarship based on financial need. At the end of the three-year TIP program, participants are typically invited to audition for the COCA Honors Program.
