Proper Technique Training

ADAPT will introduce the knowledge to teach the required techniques for each age level. We will help to develop the “eye” to see the difference and improve personal skills to communicate the “how to do” for better technical excellence.

Syllabus Work

Required technique and set syllabus work division and levels relating to each year’s semesters will be included as part of T.T.S. seminars.

The Dance Class

Training combinations and progressives across the floor will be introduced to enhance your class plans and support better style, performance with quality technique.

ADAPT Strategies

Seminars will introduce the “secrets” of the ADAPT technique strategies and formulas to help develop stronger technique and more versatile dancers for the future.

Acrobatique

A fully certified “acro-dance” program to encourage and help teachers to bring more technique, strength, acro skills and versatility into the class room. Acrobatique, founded by Melissa Klassen, is endorsed by ADAPT and this course is offered as an extra opportunity to all T.T.S. attendees. The Acrobatique course IS NOT included in the T.T.S. Fee. Please visit the Acrobatique Website for more information.

Graduation Banquet

Is a celebration for three years of hard work. In a beautiful, formal sit-down dinner and professional setting, Graduating T.T.S. teachers will be presented (individually) their “ADAPT Teacher’s Certificate”.
