Full-Time Courses

Performing Arts

Full time  |  2 YEARS (1 YEAR OPTION)

Over 3 decades ago, our Performing Arts course was established to provide full time, intensive training to those seeking a career in commercial dance. The first of its kind in the country, Full Time Performing Arts is our flagship course and is what Brent Street is known for across the globe. Now expanded to a two year package, we’re giving students the best chance to succeed in the workforce. One look at the current working industry speaks volumes – most of them being graduates of this course. A 1 year option is available to students who wish to experience just a taster of Brent Street.

With a mission to create industry-ready professionals, Performing Arts students take classes in jazz, commercial jazz, musical theatre, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, classical ballet, tap, latin, heels, fitness, conditioning, technique, singing and acting. In addition to these standard classes, students also experience audition technique, makeup and hair, improvisation and social media classes throughout the year. Students are required to complete a wide variety of theory work based around analysis, evaluation and reflection. The combination of practical and theoretical classes makes for an all-round, intelligent performer with longevity.

Make no mistake – there’s no magic wand that transforms the dancer during this course. Students should expect two years that are challenging, both physically and mentally. Our 2-year Performing Arts course is the ultimate training experience to set one up for a career in the industry.
