Contemporary Dance Hi From Us Hirers Tap Tapatak Oz Workshops

Tapatak Oz is returning with the incomparable Christine Denny & Adam Blanch !

April 7, 2018

It is with great excitement that we welcome Tapatak Oz back to Studio 53 for their annual workshop April 14th – 16th and this year’s workshop is shaping up to be extra special as it also features the opportunity for local studios, their teachers and their students to work with Australia’s super star contemporary teacher and choreographer Adam Blanch.

Adam is currently in demand all over Australia for his teaching, choreography and coaching of elite classical ballet and contemporary dancers, which sees him working with Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching, Ev & Bow and ED5 International, as well as running his own exclusive training programme “ Advanced Contemporary Technique with Adam Blanch” – which runs in Sydney. Adam also choreographs and coaches students for the prestigious “ Youth America Grand Prix”.

This is such an incredible opportunity for local dancers and we can not wait to have the work shop in full swing.  You can see more about Adam here: https://www.adamblanch.net/home/

Of course the Tapatak Oz Workshop will be running alongside this event, with local Mackay girl Christine Denny running all tap classes personally. Christine is the Director, Creator and Chief Examiner for Tapatak Oz – a modern twist on the traditional tap syllabus that has been offering examinations Australia wide for the past 10 years. For more info on Christine and Tapatak Oz – check out www.tapatak-oz.com

Christine tells us that Mackay workshops have a special place in her heart, as these very studios are where she herself grew up and learned to tap with her mother Lynette Denny. “ The cycle of life “ as she calls it.

So – hold on to your hats everyone – Studio 53 will be buzzing from April 14th  – 16th with tap dance and contemporary dance rocking the halls. Christine and Adam are both thrilled with the response to their workshops with record numbers enrolled for this year with students and teachers from a large number of schools attending including: Dance Express Mackay, Fame Talent School, Centre Stage, Leisa Payne School of Dance, Robyn Rogers School of Dance, Aspire Performing Arts, Emerald Academy of Dance, and Theatre Arts Mackay Dance Excellence.

When asked if there were still spots available for the workshop Christine responded that there were a few spots available in the classes, but that the classes were quite full! So if you are wanting to attend – jump on line and don’t miss this opportunity!
