Junior Academy for secondary school students

Covid 19 update

WAAPA is committed to providing a safe learning environment for its students and guests and follows the latest directives from the WA government.

The Junior Academy program is designed specifically for young people who have a passion for performing.

This exciting and intensive training program gives secondary students the opportunity to develop a range of skills that will enable them to become confident performers and performance makers. They will establish strong voice and movement skills and explore a range of acting and devising techniques.

By being a part of the WAAPA Junior Academy program, you will:

  • learn with expert tutors from WAAPA and industry guests
  • collaborate with other students who share a passion for performance
  • develop and build on the foundation skills of acting and performance including voice and movement and devising
  • learn how to develop believable characters
  • apply your knowledge to scripts and improvisations for stage and screen
  • share your work with family and friends at the end of each term.

The program runs from February to December each year, in line with the school terms.

Primary aged students

Due to a change in strategic direction, WAAPA will no longer be providing classes for primary aged students.
