Principal Academy of Dance and Theatre Arts


  /    /  Pre-Vocational


This carefully structured foundation program is specifically designed for ages 10 to 15. Each student receives diverse and thorough dance training by fully qualified and experienced dance tutors preparing them for further training at a higher level. Each year, students who achieve the necessary skills, are provided the option to undertake internationally recognised dance certificates.

Audition Preparation


This intensive series is a rigorous program that explores the complex art of character development and audition preparation for both stage and screen. Each individual will be expected to fully embrace a range of performance styles that utilises methods to realise the demands of the text. Each will refine a range of techniques to broaden their skill set to appreciate a more diverse range of theatrical practice to fully prepare for auditions. Further information is available upon request.

Master Class Series

Enhance your dance technique and performance

Our Master Class series in contemporary dance, provides the opportunity to train with our critically acclaimed dance tutors. Aimed at pre-professional and professionals, each series will focus on technique, choreography and performance. The series will provide dancers with a completely fresh insight into areas which may require additional study and an opportunity to be seen by professionals.

Each program is offered over a four-week intensive period and is open to those 18 years and above that have prior training at an advanced level or have completed full-time training in dance.
