Tilt Dance Co has numerous programs to offer your Dancer!

 

Twirlz & Toez:
Program for 18 months to 5 years of age. In this program there are 3 levels that explore creative movement and setting the

foundation for locomotive skills. The dancers learn things like skip, hop, march, to walk on their tip toes etc.
These skills evolve into gallop and chasse etc. All of this sets the groundwork to move into basic ballet positions.
The dancers are also learning basic stretches, how to make shapes with their bodies

and helps improve their balance and coordination.

By level 2 they are rotating through tap. They learn basic tap moves that help them expand upon the balance and coordination they have learned in T&T1. Tap also helps them start to embrace rhythm and patterns.  This class also helps the dancers learn

teamwork, cooperation and impulse control.

Level 3 puts into repetitive practice everything that was learned Levels 1-2. The dancers start to move more around the classroom exploring formations of dance while continuing to learn more ballet positions and skills.

Also they continue to explore tap moves that help them grow and develop the dynamic style.

Tap will continue to support the dancers learning rhythm, tempo and musicality.

This program sets a foundation for technique, but also is a joyful class we can introduce the dancers to the world of dance.

 

Recreational Dance

At TDC we believe dance is a discipline that is only achieved with hard work, dedication and joy.

Our professional faculty provides quality dance training while making every effort to keep the playing field level.

We place dancers into appropriate classes to suit their unique abilities, resulting in ALL TDC dancers being held to

high standards of dance training.
The TDC Dance Education program sets a foundation for technique, but also is a creative and

positive program where we can introduce the dancers to the world of dance.

The more serious dance students that possess the desire to be more, to dance and learn more and to be responsible and enjoy this opportunity. This is not just an effort for your child...

Technique

The basis of all fundamentals of dance, from holding your body correctly while performing, to executing skills properly in a routine is technique. Strong technique extends across all areas of dance, regardless of the style of your routine.

Technique will include learning proper Leaps, Tricks, Turns to help dancers work on these often challenging areas of dance.

We have 2 track levels that are designed to help each dancer identify and work on specific techniques and skills needed to improve their understanding and performance of these specific moves. Also ensuring they are taught at the appropriate time for a dancers body and level.
