“Before Principal Academy, I never thought that I would be good enough to be a dancer. Since training with some of the greatest industry professionals I now believe that I will be successful in this industry doing what I love – dancing.”

Renée Parcell / 2nd Year Dance Major

Of the performing arts institutes in Perth, Principal Academy provides the most diverse and versatile learning environment. My background was primarily in dance but I wanted to expand my skills and branch our into musical theatre. The versatility of the course meant that I could complete my Diploma and Advanced Diploma, majoring in Musical Theatre while participating in the Advance 1 level dance components. This allowed me to improve upon my dance abilities while exploring my capabilities in acting and singing.
