Originally developed in Australia at The National College of Dance byMarie Walton-Mahon Dance. We strongly believe in this added training technique as it is the perfect fit for our passionate belief in SAFE DANCE TRAINING.
TAP & Modern – Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD)
The ISTD created their syllabus in 1932 and are continually changing and updating their syllabus. The ISTD is an internationally recognized dance examining organization that gives dancers the opportunity to progress through a Tap & Modern syllabus starting at a young age all the way to a professional teaching qualification! Tap & Modern students at Dominique’s School of Dance will have the option of taking ISTD exams. Ballet, Modern or Contemporary classes are recommended for Tap students as they benefit Tap dancers by strengthening their posture & musicality. All of our ISTD classes are exam classes.
Developed by a successful studio owner and acrobatics teacher with decades of experience, the Acrobatic Arts syllabus is designed to promote excellence in tumbling, flexibility, strength, balance, contortion and partner/group stunting for dancers.
