Ballet


"A classical dance form demanding grace and precision and employing formalized steps and gestures set in intricate, flowing patterns to create expression through movement" - Unknown


Ballet is a great class to either start to  learn the wonderful art form of ballet, or if you have a background in classical ballet and want to get back to it, or you don't want to stop because you have 'aged out' of your dance school.  Our beginner class will be broken down focusing on basic ballet technique for those just starting out and our Inter to Adv classes are great for those that have experience and are looking to move a little bit faster. Either way ballet is a beautiful art form that can be enjoyed by anyone.

Tap 

"A dance in which the rhythm or rhythmical variation is audibly tapped out with the toe or heel by a dancer wearing shoes with special hard soles or with taps" - Unknown


If you have never hit a tap beat in your life, there is no need to stress.  We will start right at the beginning.  Beginner Tap is a fun way to learn the basics of a wonderful dance style and get fit at the same time.  Start anytime and make use of street shoes until you decide to purchase tap shoes. However, if you want to tap out those rhythms with your feet and are up for the challenge, Inter to Adv Tap is a great way to get fit and to tone up, (especially great for the butt and legs) whilst get those toes moving. This class is for those with tap experience.

Jazz, Burlesque, Hip Hop & Funk


"Jazz dance is a classification shared by a broad range of dance styles. Before the 1950s, jazz dance referred to dance styles that originated from African American vernacular dance. In the 1950s, a new genre of jazz dance—modern jazz dance—emerged, with roots in Caribbean traditional dance. Every individual style of jazz dance has roots traceable to one of these two distinct origins" - Unknown


At TDF a typical Jazz class will begin with a warm up focused on stretching and isolating different body parts.  The class then progresses to jazz moves ( kicks, turns, jumps etc.).  A short step by step routine is taught accompanied by popular music appropriate to the jazz style.    We will mix it up the genre each week so you don't get bored.  Classes will end with cool down and stretching.  Beginner  will focus on learning the style and Inter to Adv will be  for those with experience.
