junior

classes

Our littlest dancers spin, turn, leap and whirl into the exciting world of dance with T&D’s three age specific and stepping-stone classes. Our wonderful junior school faculty cleverly combine teaching the foundation technique in classical ballet, jazz and tap while still managing to keep the classes challenging and quick-moving.

Children will also discover their own voices and gain the confidence to sing in tune while learning safe vocal technique with our qualified singing instructors.

Best of all, our tiny dancers have fun meeting new friends and learning new skills in the structured and safe environment (always with age appropriate music and class content) that Theatre & Dance is renowned for

exams

Preparing for dance exams develops strong dancers. Dance examinations give students the opportunity to learn a challenging dance syllabus, master it and then perform it for an examiner.

We proudly offer RAD Ballet Exams and CSTD Jazz, CSTD Tap and CSTD Musical Theatre Exams for all ages and levels.

All teachers at Theatre & Dance are qualified and highly experienced.

CERTIFICATE III

IN DANCE

Partnered with EmpowerDance,
T&D is excited to offer
the Certificate III in Dance.

The Cert III in Dance course gives students a great introduction to full time training and the performing arts industry. The course is only one day a week so students can complete this while still at school. If you are serious about becoming a professional, this course is a wonderful start to your career in addition to completing a Vocational Education and Training (VET) certificate which becomes a supplementary qualification towards your QTAC Tertiary Selection Rank.

This rank can be considered in addition to your OP but does not affect or change your OP (or the soon to be introduced Australian Tertiary Admission Rank system).

This course is 90% practical, in-studio time to ensure students are gaining advanced skills and technique in all genres of the performing arts industry. For those who desire a professional career in the dance industry in either training or performance or for those looking to improve their dance technique for personal gain this course is the perfect fit!

Applicants should have a strong basic training in at least two disciplines: Jazz, Contemporary, Classical Ballet, Hip Hop or Musical Theatre.

Summer School &

Professional Intensive

Every year in January Theatre & Dance offers two comprehensive summer training programs.

The annual T&D Summer School is comprised of a collection of Australia’s best choreographers and performers in all genres of dance, musical theatre and singing and caters to children aged 6 – 13 years of age. This is an open event and we invite students of all skill levels, regardless of whether they are currently enrolled at Theatre & Dance.

We also offer a week of night classes, our Professional Intensive, aimed at advanced students aged 14+ and young, semi professionals. These classes are high intensity, challenging and offer attendees the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s most highly regarded industry professionals.
