Students train daily in a variety of dance techniques under the guidance of international dance experts and participate in a variety of theoretical classes, focusing on subjects such as: production, dance history, the human body, performance psychology, arts management and more.

AMPA offers Fee-Help for domestic students and credit for Dip. & Adv Dip. graduates interested in upgrading their qualification.
