Flexible Intensive Industry Training (F.I.I.T)

Course Details

F.I.I.T is the newest and most exciting form of professional dance training to hit Melbourne! Dance is a physically demanding endeavour and no one can work their hardest for 8 to 10 hours a day, day after day. This inevitably leads to students "pacing themselves" during class, or risking injuries or mental health issues with the demands placed on them.

The Space Dance and Arts Centre full timeThe Space has developed a new method of training, designed for time and energy efficiency to maximise your dance improvement in a more time efficient way.


Running from 9am to 12:45pm Monday to Friday, F.I.I.T consists of intensive training in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Commercial, Hip Hop, Partnering and Physical Conditioning; honing you to be the best possible all rounded dancer you can be.

The Space Full Time Melbourne The Space has always had a strong focus on Choreography and Artistry; and this is maintained with a student devised and created Fringe Festival Show, Choreography assignments and mentoring, and Student Works performed during the year.


For those with more time, energy and inclination; pay full fees up front and have unlimited access to all of The Space Dance & Arts Centre's casual dance classes - including over 80 additional classes each week in a huge variety of styles and levels.
