The Certificate IV in Performing Arts course is a triple threat program for students who are interested in a versatile career in commercial dance or working in an ensemble in musical theatre productions. The course is heavily dance focused across all dance genres but also includes training in singing and acting, nutrition, body conditioning, performance, choreography and career planning. Auditions for this course will be held in Brisbane on 1 September, in Sydney on 8 September and in Perth on 28 September.


Brent Street’s Full Time Dance CoursesThe Diploma of Dance (Elite Performance) course is Brent Street’s classical/ contemporary program for those students wanting a career in a contemporary company. Through the program, 17 units of competency are delivered in an integrated approach across a variety of different subjects. Subjects include commercial contemporary, cultural dance, classical ballet technique, partnering, dance injury and prevention, hip-hop, dance history, improvisation and choreographic theory, and much more. The contemporary training aspect follows The Jason Winters Contemporary Technique Level 6 CSTD syllabus and is only taught at Brent Street. Students may progress to an Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree. Auditions for this course will be held in the same location on the same days as the Certificate IV course.


The Diploma of Musical Theatre course is for students either with a background in singing, dancing and acting or who excel in one or two performance areas and wish to refine their skill sets in the others. Students will study musical theatre history, acting, Broadway jazz, commercial jazz, tap, hip-hop, vocal techniques, theatrical make-up, audition preparation and business skills as a freelance artist.
