Qualifications & Skills Covered

Bachelor of Creative Arts (Dance)
Performance is combined with study of the theoretical knowledge that is essential for gaining employment and building skills as a professional dancer. The course has a strong emphasis on performance and on realising productions for public presentation and equips you with comprehensive professional skills in the areas of major employment in the entertainment industry, realistic dance techniques, devised movement practices, dance project realisation, choreography and stage performance. The course introduces you to areas of development and increasing importance in the Australian industry encouraging you to work as a conceptual artist through courses specialising in techniques of group devising, auto-performance and choreography and develops your awareness of the relevance of these discourses to professional practice.
