Ready, Set, Dance

So why choose dance?

Ready, Set… Class:

We would love your preschooler to experience the magic of our class. Below are details of where and when classes are available.

Ready, Set… Uniform:

There is a uniform that we are sure that you will love, but for your first class please come in comfortable clothes and shoes.

Ready, Set… You Tube:

We have our own You Tube channel so you can have a sneak peak into our class before you attend. Check out this link to see our ‘I love Dancing’ song which helps us achieve our three goals – Confidence, Creativity and Coordination!

Ready, Set… Begin:

We offer a trial class so you can see the magic of the program before you need to take any further steps signing up. Please let us know what day you would like to come for your first class and we will make sure the office is organised to greet you and introduce you to the class teacher.

Our preschoolers just LOVE….

SACE Stage 1 and 2 Dance

TIDC Performing Arts Studio takes pleasure in offering SACE Stage 1 and 2 Dance to students who do not have the opportunity to study these subjects in their own schools.

Both Stage 1 & 2 dance students work independently alongside each other. Classes will be conducted at our Port Road Studio on Saturdays from 2-5pm.

Students cover dance theory topics, Performance, Technique, and Choreography. SACE Dance at TIDC is a stand-alone course and students from any dance studio, calisthenics or gymnastics club are welcome to enroll.

Frequently asked questions: 

How old does my child need to be? The preferred target age are students who would be in year 10 at school in 2018. It is encouraged that they work one year ahead of their usual school year level as it gives them an opportunity to do one less subject when they are in Year 12 or an opportunity to take up a different subject should they wish to maximise their ATAR score (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank).

How much will it cost?
$450 per term for Year 11  and  $500 per term for Year 12

How do we know if it will run at TIDC in 2018? We need a minimum of 6 students to make it viable.

Which studio/days/times will it be held? Port Road Studio – 593 Port Road West Croydon, Saturdays 2-5pm, during the school term.

What do I tell the school my child attends? You just need to notify the school’s SACE Coordinator that they are studying the course so they are aware of it. TIDC will cover all of the SACE administrative work so that Dance will be recorded on their SACE Certificate.

What styles are offered? For the Performance component, students can perform in a variety of dance genres and most commonly include Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Tap. For Technique, we offer Jazz and Tap as the main genre covered but can accommodate students who excel in Classical Ballet and Contemporary.

Will my child miss any of their usual school days due to their involvement in this course? Often workshop and viewing performance opportunities arise that are too good to miss so it is recommend students take these opportunities but they are not compulsory. It will however be compulsory that students miss one day of school to rehearse for their performance that is worth 30% of their overall grade.

Acro/Cheer

jazzThis is a program that is equally interesting, exciting and inspiring for both girls and boys.
We listened to our student’s interest, world trends and merged them into this course motivating children to put their desires, patience and engagement into this form of physical development.

A rich and interesting program of dance acrobatics influence the improvement of motor functions, such as strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, encourage the development of fitness and above all the development of proper posture and a sense of movement. In this program students develop abilities and skills that will in the future provide the ability to deal with any type of sports.

Choreography and dance rhythms will bring a smile to the faces of all the participants and their audience.

Performance Team

swan lak 17TIDC Performance Teams (Junior and Senior) will be performing at various functions and events around Adelaide, some of these will be for charity and others will be for Professional Gigs ( with a very exciting one lined up for the Senior team in July).

To be part of this team you must firstly attend various classes at the studio and then you will either be selected from the work ethic you display at the studio or via the audition process. The auditions will be advertised at a later date.

We are looking forward to this exciting venture – which will also include all genre, singing and acting – as the team will need to run the whole show. Further details please email the director tidcperformingarts1@me.com

Some younger children might be ready for this program dependent on developmental stages.

iStock_000011994797SmallProgram Specifics

Carers are seen as parents, grandparents, child minders, adult family friends, teachers and others in early childhood workplaces. The ‘carer‘ in the program is called a ‘friend‘ so as to develop confidence for the young student. The ‘friend‘ works with the student throughout all of the activities.

  • The role of a ‘friend‘ is clearly noted in the program for the teacher so as to allow for the maximum involvement and understanding of the concept by the ‘friend‘.
  • Aims are clearly listed din all activities.
  • The program allows for student and teacher exploration of the concepts. At times the ideas might stimulate other activities that will enhance the learning and imagination of students. This is encouraged and the lessons do not need to be done rigidly but should be flexible.
  • Free movement, creativity and mime are encouraged in activities.
  • Books are involved in every lesson to stimulate imagination and to create an imaginative base for further dance concepts and skills. Visual stimuli  have been incorporated as a teaching tool.
  • Tactile experiences are developed through play on apparatus, use of props and musical instruments.

A04_3257

  • The format of each lesson is consistent so both the teacher and the ‘carer’ feel comfortable in the flow of the lesson.
  • The lessons are based on a 30minute schedule but can be lengthened or used over a longer period of time, broken up and combined with other lessons and activities and do not need to run in the order of the program.
  • “Imagine, a place to be me” does not only apply to students but also to the teacher.
  • Themes have been added as a fun addition to the program. These can be developed as intensely as the teacher and students choose.
  • The learning experiences of the students have not been added to this set of plans, however, the aims should identify the aspects of learning and experiences.
  • Students of this group age learn in a positive environment with bright stimuli and a well planned program that is flexible to suit the needs and interests of the student.

Musical Theatre

jungle 23Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole. Although musical theatre overlaps with other theatrical forms like opera and dance, it may be distinguished by the equal importance given to the music as compared with the dialogue, movement and other elements. Since the early 20th century, musical theatre stage works have generally been called, simply, musicals.

At TIDC Performing Arts Studio we are passionate about Musical Theatre and have forged strong links with industry professionals over many years. We pride ourselves in understanding industry requirements and knowing a vast variety of experienced and generous practitioners ready to offer you help and advice whilst you are studying with us, and afterwards. Vocal technique, vocal stamina and development is a particular focus at the studios.

harry potter 9We at the TIDC performing Arts Studio assist you in developing a rigorous practice routine and choosing and consolidating suitable repertoire covering all the genres you are likely to need for future auditions. We believe that performing takes regular and frequent practice and facilitate this in all our courses. You will build your confidence, learn to allow yourself to fail and have a chance to sing and perform solo. You will receive training in performance craft, dance and intensive acting coaching. You will discover and develop your unique selling point and cast-ability. Our members and alumni feature as leads, swings and ensemble in local, regional and international touring productions.

Our teachers brings a vibrancy to each lesson and really encourages everybody to have confidence while singing and uses songs the students can relate to and want to sing. For the more advanced singing student, private lessons are encouraged to really hone in on their individual talent. We also have Musical Theatre classes on offer for those wanting to experience singing dancing and acting, to help with an all round performance.

Requirements – folder for music brought every week to class and uniform for Musical Theatre

Below are various classes available, we have competition level (via audition), combined Singing, Dancing and Acting, or Separate classes in various levels of dance, acting in conjunction with Adelaide Youth Theatre and singing.

There are also opportunities to audition with the Adelaide Youth Theatre as well as mid year performances and End of Year Productions.
