For students in academic year 11 and above, we offer Nationally recognised courses in Dance. Students complete their CUA40120* Certificate IV in Dance in their first year and move directly to their CUA60120* Advanced Diploma in Professional Dance (Elite Performance) (skipping through the Diploma year) in their second year. The Advanced Diploma is a qualification higher than a normal year 12 ATAR and can be used as entry for many University courses. We also offer CUA40320* Certificate IV in Dance Teaching and Management for any student wishing to complete a Nationally recognised teachers qualification.
*Provided in partnership with Australian Teachers of Dancing RTO 31624
The Conlan College offers two distinct streams of full time training. Entry is by private audition and is restricted to those students who we believe will be successful in following a career in the dance industry.
For students in academic years 8 to 10, we offer our traditional full time program that works in conjunction with academic studies. Students enrol in the distance education program of their choice and combine that with our very rigorous schedule of full time classes. They attend five days per week from 9am to 4pm and all requirements of their courses are covered during those hours. This allows these students to attend to their academic requirements in the evenings and on the weekends.
