What is IDT?
Created by Lucy Ellis Dance Coaching and Kylie Norris #Norrisfit in 2019 – International Dance Technique is an exam Syllabus designed to develop plyometric agility, strength, fitness, flexibility and strong jazz technique in dancers of all ages and abilities.
Finally! A modern Technique exam syllabus created specifically for dance studios and dancers who want productive technique classes as part of their studio curriculum. IDT is also available for independent dancers who still wish to learn and sit an exam each year.
IDT includes progressive stretch exercises with emphasis on square splits and safe dance practice (without sacrificing the lines and shapes necessary for current technique elements).
Age appropriate conditioning exercises to strengthen muscles, increase agility, control and power in dance combos, training in all relevant Kick, Turn and Jump techniques, PLUS Combos and Choreography created by leading industry professionals from around the world. All IDT exercises are short, easy to teach and easy for students to learn and retain. IDT aims to keep the dancer motivated to reach their full potential as a technical dancer.
Lucy Ellis and Kylie Norris have been creating and developing successful dancers with exceptional technique for decades. After travelling the world coaching & choreographing, both are ready and excited to impart their knowledge to the dance community.
Students will be scored for each exercise. The students will be marked against an International Average and not just against the other students sitting the exam with them. Total marks will be given out of 100.
