TAP @ Dundas opened the doors to it's brand new studio on Dundas Street in 2017. The TAP doesn't just represent one of the fabulous styles of dance that we offer, but actually the initials of our Principal, Tilly A. Pitman.
At TAP @ Dundas, we want all our students to get the best out of their dance journeys through our fun and encouraging environment. Dance helps children gain greater self-confidence, increase their fitness and activity, build stronger teamwork, improve listening and discipline, and improve their overall happiness!

Tyler (Tilly) A. Pitman
Dip. Dance Teaching and Management
Cert. IV Training and Assessment
Associate Diploma Cecchetti Ballet Australia C.I.C.B.
Affiliate Teacher A.T.O.D Pty Ltd
I began dancing at the age of 5 in the Cecchetti Method of Classical Ballet and took up Tap at the age of 12 in the ATOD Method. I have completed all Classical Exams up to and including Advanced 2 and Tap exams up to and including Intermediate Seal.
I started teaching a few classes in 2011 and each year I started teaching more and more. After I finished school, I went on to study full time at Box Hill Institute and in 2014, I graduated with my Diploma in Dance Teaching and Management. In 2015, I returned to Box Hill and obtained my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
I became an Affiliate Teacher of ATOD in 2014 and entered my first group of students for their Tap Exams, all receiving exceptional results. I was also a secondary coach for junior students doing Cecchetti Exams.
I began further studies in the Cecchetti Method and successfully obtained my Cecchetti Associate in 2016 and Associate Diploma in 2018. I've continued these studies and I hope to obtain my Licentiate in 2019.
I love dance and everything that goes with it, and I love nothing more than passing on my knowledge and passion of dance to others
"TAP @ Dundas is a positive, encouraging environment for my daughter Natalie. Miss Tilly and all her students work very hard on their dancing routines and technique. Anyone who loves their dance will be very supported with this group."
"My daughter has been taught by Tilly for the last 7 years and I cannot recommend her highly enough. In that time Tilly has fostered her love of dance and created a life long friendship. Looking forward to her helping enhance my daughter's skills further."
