Through the Theatrical Dance International (TDI) syllabus children are able to progress though a range of classes designed to meet their specific confidence and ability levels. From the basic movements they progress through the grades and mayor levels, developing their understanding of technique, musicality and performance.
Theatrical Dance International is an association that has been formed by experienced teachers, dancers, dance educators and examiners with much care and thought for today's teachers and students of dance.
TDI syllabi are designed for the very young through to the professional level. Our beginners syllabuses are known to be the most beneficial offered throughout Australasia.
Examinations for the following disciplines:
Ballet – Pre Primary to Solo Seal
Tap – Beginners to Solo Seal
American Jazz – Preliminary to Solo Seal
National character – Beginners to Advanced
Contemporary - Bronze Medal Test to Solo
Lyrical – Bronze Medal Test to Solo
All syllabus work is taught with the intention that students will work towards sitting an exam.
Exams are held in the Tauranga Studio in November each year.
We also offer cups and trophies that students aspire to win following in the footsteps of older students and in some cases parents and relations that have gone before them. Older students often donate cups and trophies when they leave to celebrate excellence in our school.
All pupils receive a report, certificate and medal at our end of year prizegiving.
