Tri-Tone Adult Rhythm Ensemble was created to facilitate an expressed interest for a consistent training platform with other Adult Tap enthusiasts. The mission is to provide an opportunity for Adult Tap Dancers and Rhythmic artists, to experience a collaborative company atmosphere in a supportive, process oriented, creative setting. The focus will be on developing solid technique and musicality, pass along historical repertoire, as well as collaborate in the creation of new works. The program is tailored to dancers who wish to have a more intensive course of study and are willing to make a weekly commitment, to move forward as a unit with other Adults who are passionate about Tap.
The ensemble will have the opportunity to work with Tap Masters, Body Percussionists and Choreographers from around the world during the Rhythm Body and Soul Festival, February 13-15, 2015. In addition, the ensemble will perform, participate in the technical and stage production aspects of producing concert work and has the opportunity to learn how to work with live musicians. Directed studies are available, including teacher training mentorships, and music studies to students of interest. The ensemble is also given the opportunity to travel to Conferences to gain technical and performance experience in Canada and abroad.
