Brent Street Academy, is a full-time performing arts and academic program for school aged students in Years 10, 11 and 12. These students are more than just talented, they have passion, drive and a high level of engagement in their performing arts training.
Note: In 2019, school aged students in Year 9 can apply.
Students will undertake their performing arts training and academic studies at Brent Street. Academic studies are undertaken online with Cairns School of Distance Education.
Students in Years 11 or 12 who enrol in the Academy have the option to pay additional costs to complete a CUA40113 Certificate IV in Dance, which is a nationally recognised qualification. Students who choose this option will undertake the training and assessment for the qualification simultaneously whilst completing the performing arts and academic program.
This intense training program has seen our graduates go on to work continuously in the commercial dance industry, major musicals in Australia, the West End and Broadway, feature films, TV presenting, recording artist world tours, TV roles and in choreography. Graduates have also gone on to become “So You think You Can Dance” winners, Julliard scholarship recipients, physiotherapists, and lawyers.
