About TADC

PERFORMING GROUP

Founded in 2003, Travel Art Dance Company brings together dancers from a range of dance and movement backgrounds, with the motivation behind the group being the combination of choreographed and improvised dance in a performance context. The experience of the dancers in the group ranges from contemporary dance, classical ballet, improvisation and creative dance to yoga, gymnastics, circus and martial arts. TADC performances combine a variety of choreographic approaches, reflecting the rich and diverse movement backgrounds both of the choreographers and of the individual dancers in the group.
