Course Details

Left Leg Studios offers excellent tuition in a nurturing, creative and safe environment, focusing on preparing students for professional opportunities in the Performing Arts & Left Leg StudiosEntertainment Industry.  They keep their class sizes small, and have some of the very best teachers in the country.  “We are very fortunate to have the faculty that we do. The caliber of our permanent teachers as well as our guest teachers is definitely what sets us aside.”  LLS have designed their training to prepare the students for the professional market by mastering a broad ranging skill set, learning how to audition, and be a self sufficient, employable artist.  “We want the students to enjoy their training as well as feeling that they have our total support and guidance for whatever their next step may be.”


The Diploma of Musical Theatre Course is full time and is accredited through Swinburne University with 16 Units in total (810hours). Equal parts Dance, Acting and Singing tuition is a priority.  On top of this students are provided with private singing lessons, fortnightly mock Left Leg Studiosauditions in front of a professional panel, and assisted with audition repertoire and individual portfolios.  The course also includes body-conditioning & anatomy, whilst incorporating an understanding of industry roles and expectations, with a strong emphasis on management skills and professional conduct.


The Pre-Professional Program is ideal for students aged between 14-20.  They train for 12 hours a week with a variety of incredible teachers learning how to be self-sufficient and professional. The PPP also teaches students how to audition, how to take care of their bodies, and how to work in a team environment, whilst enjoying their training.  Students are exposed to many disciplines that expand their skill set & turn them into versatile performers.  Part Timers are given an individual vocal assessment each year, have professional headshots taken, and also perform in our Musical with the Diploma Students.
