At TDA we are passionate about dancing. Our goal is clear – everyone should enjoy dancing!

It’s that simple… we make dancing fun. Our teachers love to dance. We really want to share our love of dance with your child. We want to encourage your child to try their hardest and to be the very best version of themselves that they can!

At TDA we realise that each student is different. We do our best to incorporate many different teaching styles so we can reach and inspire each and every willing student. We really want to make a difference.

We’re sorry in advance; but we really want your loungeroom to be full of pirouettes and high kicks! We really want your child to cartwheel along the beach as you stroll and we hope your child points their toes as they step into their pyjamas each night.

For our small dancers, we’re about tiaras and top hats or maybe becoming a mermaid or a pirate. It’s about the love of movement, the joy of music, the excitement of creativity and having the structure and yet the freedom to enjoy it all. For our older dancers it’s about fun, friends, fitness and developing a strong foundation in dance. Equal measures of all.

The TDA Team

Our qualified, caring and enthusiastic team strives to create a positive and nurturing environment for your child to develop correct dance foundations and share their love of movement!
