Dancers will achieve a strong adaptable technique; develop their own individual artistry and will be guided to achieve the psychological and emotional readiness needed to enter the professional dance world.


Students will be individually prepared for mid year assessments, RAD exams; professional school and company auditions; scholarships; national competitions and international competitions such as:
-Prix de Lausanne (Switzerland)
-Alana Haines (New Zealand)
-McDonald’s Scholarship (Sydney)
-Genée International Ballet Competition (RAD)


Individually choreographed dances will be designed to maximise each student’s strengths and inspire the growth of artistic expression. Our mid-year showcase and full length end of year production provide more opportunities for stage experience.


The focus of the APP program is always on the individual.
Class numbers are kept small to meet the needs of each student and recognise and nurture individual talent and potential. Regular opportunities to discuss and set long and short term goals will be an integral facet of the program.


Students will be given access to professional guidance regarding auditions, CV preparation, DVD production and portfolio photos.
