WAAPA’s Dance programs train classical and contemporary dance artists by utilising teaching methods designed to develop and refine the skills of each individual. The courses offer a breadth that is unique to WAAPA and prepare students for a seamless transition into a wide range of careers within the profession.
WAAPA offers a mix of vocational dance courses and degree programs. All are full-time and range from two to three years in duration. Within each course, students have a degree of flexibility to choose and combine the mix that is best suited to their individual talents and aspirations. Graduates of the Advanced Diploma can articulate into the Bachelor of Arts (Dance) program.
WAAPA’s Dance programs are intensive and performance based, with students averaging 35-40 contact hours per week. In addition to daily tuition from professionally credentialed teaching staff, three performance seasons per year give students the opportunity to work with visiting national and international choreographers. Recent guest choreographers include Rafael Bonachela, Jayne Smeulders, Richard Cilli and Nils Christe. Students also regularly participate in national and international tours, further enhancing their skills and enriching their cultural experience. View our Dance brochure.
