The ADV-ADi tap learning strategies (syllabus) give the students a solid grounding in technique taking the young student right through to professional levels. A special programme for the Adult and Teenage Beginner is also available giving students the opportunity to progress at their own pace. The programme features twelve levels progressively introducing new techniques to develop and challenge the dancer. Using creative choreography in a variety of styles, time signatures and speeds, allows the student to develop rhythm and musicality while increasing their technical ability. This syllabus was developed by Lorna Nichols, herself an experienced tap dancer. Lorna is a former member of The Australian Ballet and has created the course with a commitment and passion evident in the comprehensive and thorough programme. A challenging and rewarding course for dancers.
ADV Teacher Tracy Stewart says:
ADV to me provides the very best in dance education - excellence! The curriculum promotes a solid foundation in dance education encompassing an all round education (creating the thinking dancer) i.e. through body science, nutrition, physiology, kinesiology, anatomy, terminology, music, history, choreography etc. ADV provides the perfect guidelines to give students the very best opportunity for advancement.
