A VIBRANT PART OF OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
Building great citizens, not just great dancers is one of our objectives at TCDA. In keeping with this goal we support and encourage numerous charity and community events each year.
We are so thankful for the overwhelming support that we receive toward this end.
STARS OF TAMWORTH DANCE FOR CANCER.
We are so very proud of or partnership with the Cancer Council NSW for the annual Stars of Tamworth Dance For Cancer,
working together to raise much needed funds for our local Cancer Council projects including Inala House.
Our teachers, choreographers and senior students to help form a team and build a fun and competitive atmosphere where all can be involved and make a difference.
We have forged so many wonderful friendships over the years and most importantly thousands of dollars have been raised for a cause so close to so many of our hearts. TCDA has worked with the Cancer Council on "Stars" since 2015 and look forward to many more years together.
TCDA supports the amazing work done by a number of charities to improve the lives of those in our local and wider communities. We have thrown our support behind these organisations to not only aid in fundraising but also in raising awareness, which in many circumstances is even more critical.
Over the years we have supported such charities and events as the Cancer Council NSW's Relay for Life, Festival of Abilities, Westpac Rescue Ball, Family Fun Day for Max Simpson, Canteen, McHappy Day, Light the Night for the Leukaemia Foundation, RUOK Day and the Epiphanies fundraising concert for Mental Health.
We believe that active participation in our local as well as our dance community is a crucial component to making our town vibrant, healthy and liveable. We pride ourselves and our dancers on being supportive with such a vast array of initiatives within our community.
We have performed at so many events including but certainly not limited to the Country Music Cavalcade, Queens Baton Relay, Bicentenary of Tamworth, Quirindi PS Fete, Timbumburi Carols by Glowstick, View Club National Conference, Basketball at the Sports Dome, Bastille Day for Le Pruneau, Level Up opening, NSW Training Awards, Lions Club Seniors Concert, Harmony Day, North Tamworth Bears Centenary, Netball Presentations, Art in the Garden, Cinema Under the Stars and the Country Music Awards.
TCDA is proud to be a very important part of the Bullimbal Schools program with our specialised Dance Syllabus for these incredible children.
We deliver our dance course on site with the amazing educators and helpers at Bullimbal bringing the core skills of movement and expression the student body.
We love seeing the students grow through dance and in preparing for these classes our teachers discover new techniques to increase inclusion.
These lessons have culminated into many performances at both CAPERS and Regional Dance Festivals over many years and we pride ourselves the quality of our lesson plans and delivery and treasure the positive feedback.
RAISING OUR CULTURAL LANDSCAPE.
We understand the importance of having access to a number of influences and stimuli. To this end TCDA has been presenting partners with Tamworth Regional Council to bring productions such as the Sydney Dance Company's "Frame of Mind and the Melbourne City Ballet's "A Midsummer Nights Dream" to Tamworth.
In 2022 TCDA collaborated with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and the Tamworth Con for "Musical Theatre Lab", a week long series of music, dance and vocal workshops culminating in a performance at the Capitol Theatre.
TCDA's head teacher Miss Lily also lends her talents to the Tamworth Musical Society as a choreographer, most recently in Shrek the Musical.
