Tamara Argall is passionate about connecting dance with nature, culture, issues of the world and Biblical themes. She enjoys bringing people together from different levels and experiences of dance, for them to move freely and not be inhibited or restricted by their thoughts or body! She has brought this approach to many Faith and the Arts dance workshops.
Tamara trained in dance at Wesley Institute and later in Education. She has worked with small dance companies and independent choreographers and directed her first major collaborative show ‘blank’. She has residencies in Europe, at Annandale Creative Arts Centre and in Poatina exploring the natural environment, studied Isadora Duncan dance technique in New York, and travelled to villages in India to present dramatic health skits.
Recently Tamara has been teaching Year 10 and 11 students dance as an art form and safe dance practices. She has also been exploring and creating movement ideas out and about, and using film to document and share ideas during Sydney lockdowns.

“Anybody can and should dance… It’s good for the body and the spirit” - Isadora Duncan
A dance class designed to approach material with your own level of dance experience, from beginner to advanced. Also suitable for a small space.
We begin each session with meditative movement that involves stretch, strength and simple rhythmic movement, with prayer and scripture throughout.
Explore movement with your own self-expression, through specific dance actions (travelling, jumping, turning, gesture, stillness, falling), and the elements of dance (space, time and dynamics), with a fusion of dance styles.
With guidance and structure, improvise and compose dance on the FATA theme, personal reflections, scripture, and prayers from the class.
Max & min numbers apply, make sure you indicate a second choice of morning elective when registering in case your first choice is unavailable
