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 had residencies in Europe, at Annandale Creative Arts Centre and in Poatina exploring the natural environment. She studied Isadora Duncan dance technique in New York, and travelled to villages in India to present dramatic health skits.
Most recently Tamara teaches high school students dance and PDHPE. She facilitates dance ensembles, extra-curricular activities and choreography for school events.
“Anybody can and should dance… It’s good for the body and the spirit” - Isadora Duncan
A dance class designed to approach movement material with your own level of dance experience, from beginner to advanced.
We begin each session with a meditative warm up that involves stretch, strength and simple rhythmic movement.
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 afternoon elective when registering in case your first choice is unavailable.
