Ettingshausens’ Certificate IV audition

Ettingshausens Full Time CoursesEttingshausens, a dance training centre with studios in Kirrawee and Miranda in North South Wales, will be holding an audition for entry to its Full Time Dance Courses on Sunday, August 25. Courses include Certificate IV in Dance and Certificate IV in Dance Teaching and Management.


Ettingshausens, an organisation known for being a leader in performing arts training and education, is recognised for creating, unearthing and empowering brilliant performers. The Certificate IV courses offer the next generation a chance to be guided and directed at a renowned institute by resident faculty who draw on years of combined experience and knowledge.


The school gives students the unique choice to focus on either performance or teaching. Both courses are supported by the latest information on all industry fronts, giving them the opportunity to refine their skills and take the steps to translate this into employability.


The first option, Certificate IV in Dance, revolutionises the way dance-based courses are delivered and received. The course fuses technical development with innovative performance artistry. Recognising how important it is to combine stylised training with regular and current industry feedback, this boutique course offers smaller class sizes, allowing for more individual attention and guidance. Plus, dancers will develop their choreographic skills and learn how to create and produce their own works.
