OUR DIRECTOR

Lisa Anne Hammer is the dedicated, passionate and highly organised director of TDC. Having come from a background of gymnastics/acrobatics and intense dance training, Lisa launched TDC in 2012 to allow her to create and develop dancers in her own unique method. It has also allowed her to develop a business that genuinely cultivates dance technique, artistic ability, performance and community feel, something that she felt had lacked in other schools she had seen and experienced.

Lisa thoroughly enjoys all aspects of TDC including teaching classes, choreographing for competitions and performances, overseeing and directing all aspects of performances, training and mentoring upcoming assistants and teachers, and creating exciting external opportunities for the students. With an Honours Degree in Child Psychology from The University of Melbourne, Lisa is not only passionate about children and dance, but highly qualified and academically positioned to get the very best out of the students under TDC tuition.

Lisa has a broad range of dance experience including training in Melbourne and LA. She has also completed examinations in RAD and Cechetti Ballet syllabus, has completed Levels 1-7 Gymnastics Certification and Module 1 & 2 of the Acrobatics Arts Certification.
