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

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.

  • 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

Stretching Classes

IMG_0598Ballet stretches are an essential part of training in this form of dance. Not only stretching, but stretching correctly, can improve your performance now and extend your dancing life for years.

The kicks, leaps and poses involved in dance require extensive flexibility. Improving your flexibility not only leads to a greater range of motion for your muscles, it also relieves stress, improves your performance and even prevents injury. Stretching is also an important component in a warm up that readies your body for performance or practice. Stretch daily for the best results, and in all cases, never stretch to the point that you feel pain. Because flexibility is such an important part of dance, at TIDC Performing Arts Adelaide we have introduced a compulsory class for advanced level dance program students. These classes consist of strengthening work, followed by flexibility working within each child’s ability. Acrobatics is also being introduced with further work on flexibility and the introduction of tricks, this is available for all levels and will be starting from Under 8 this year.

IMG_0596Whether dancing to classical, modern, jazz or hip-hop music, dancers require a tremendous amount of strength and flexibility to bring the music to life through their bodies. Although your daily life may not require you to lift your leg toward the sky or bend over backwards, dance stretches to increase flexibility can help you avoid injury in your regular activities.

IMG_0589Dynamic Stretching

Before you start your dance workout, you need to warm up and ready your body for action. Dynamic or active stretching is the type of stretching you should use in your warm up. After a five to 10 minute period of light cardiovascular activity, perform a routine of dynamic stretches including all of the muscle groups in your body. Use the same routine each day so that you do not omit any muscle groups. Start with small motions, increasing the range of the motion with each repetition. Perform the motion at a slow and steady pace.

IMG_0593Static Stretching

To improve flexibility, you also need to incorporate static stretching in your training plan. Static stretching involves stretches that are held in a stationary position. This type of stretching is best done at the end of your workout or dance class, when your muscles are thoroughly warmed up and extremely supple. In a stretching position, lower your body into the stretch until you feel a gentle pull in the belly of your muscle. In addition to improving your flexibility, static stretching at the end of your workout can serve as a cool down period and reduce soreness after your workout.

Requirements – uniform, bare feet.
