AMPA offers the only performance-based dance degree in NSW and caters for dancers with advanced training in at least one genre. Our practical classes in ballet, contemporary & jazz are supported by studies in Choreography, Production, Body Science, Dance History & Performance Psychology with electives available in Acro, Partnering, Singing, Drama and Musicianship. Graduates from this course have been successful in securing positions in Dance and Music Theatre companies, Performing Arts administration and television productions. Some choose to travel the world as professional dancers on cruise ships and in theme parks, while others have chosen to pursue further study in Production, Teaching & Choreography. Each student is carefully nurtured and advised so that every dancer is successful in reaching their full potential in the area that best suits their skills and interests. If dance is your career choice then this is the course for you.
Practical dance classes per week:
Practical classes are taught by industry professionals and highly qualified teachers who are specialists in their field.
