International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
The Queensland Academies Creative Industries (QACI) Campus is a proudly inclusive community of innovative and creative thinkers who seek opportunities to ignite their curiosity, develop global and intercultural perspectives and foster a love of lifelong learning.
Established in 2007 in the heart of Brisbane's inner-city, Kelvin Grove Urban Village, QACI is a selective-entry state high school offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for highly capable students in Years 10 to 12.

Over the course of the two-year Diploma Programme, students:
- study six (6) subjects chosen from the six (6) academic areas
- complete an Extended Essay (EE)
- follow a Theory of Knowledge course (TOK)
- participate in Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS).

Practical Classes
Within the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Dance subject at QACI, Year 10, 11 and 12 students participate in four 1-hour lessons per week (two of these hours run back-to-back as a double class). Students are encouraged to participate in dance studio work outside of school to develop and maintain technique, although this is not a compulsory requirement for Dance at QACI. Students participate in performance, composition and analysis, and explore non-conventional ways of moving.
