NAISDA invites applications for its next intake of standout dance and performing arts students

Posted on: 27/4/2021 6:00PM

NAISDA Dance College is seeking its next intake of standout dance and performing arts students and invites First Nations applicants aged 16 to 26 with a passion for dance and culture to apply online today. NAISDA Head of Dance, Deon Hastie, outlined the unqiue opportunities at Australia’s only national arts training organisation specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.


Students train fulltime at NAISDA’s onsite campus on Darkinjung Land on the New South Wales Central Coast. The College alleviates any anxiety students may have of adjusting to a new environment by building a secure, holistic community around them.


Following a short online application, NAISDA CEO Kim Walker confirmed the College would host two onsite audition weeks later in the year for potential students.


Eligible auditionees can apply to ABSTUDY to fund travel and living expenses to attend either one of the two Auditions.


Whilst it is important for applicants to experience NAISDA for themselves, alternative arrangements can be made for anyone unable to make either of the audition weeks in September and December.
