Theatre Arts presents a complete theatre and performing arts training program for young artists who wish to further explore their passion for performance. The year course will feature 3 performance opportunities throughout the year starting with the presentation of a play or dramatic work, followed by a evening of vocal performances and culminating with the presentation of a musical theatre styled revue work to be held in Melbourne Dance Centre’s own theatre space the MDC Theatre.

Run by industry professionals, the Theatre Arts performance program will tailor to each successful applicants needs, and will mentor and develop all the relevant techniques and attitudes needed to be successful in today’s industry. 

The program will take place one evening a week and consist of vocal and drama technique classes, with each performing arts discipline working closely together and complimenting the overall vision of the program.
