APO Arts Academy, a performing arts institution based in Melbourne, provides industry-focused training & vocational courses, Musical Theatre and Dance to full-time and part-time students. Our Musical Theatre programs offer students the opportunity to undertake rigorous training in core disciplines: Singing, Acting and Dance.

As part of the program, students enrolled in the Musical Theatre Department are afforded a number of performance opportunities throughout their training, to assist in artistic development and understanding industry trends and practices.  Accordingly, industry professionals and guest lecturers are regularly invited to conduct masterclasses, lectures, &/or participate in the programs, by working alongside staff as guest directors, choreographers or musical directors.

Admission into both the Diploma & Certificate courses is based on audition and interview.

When deciding to train at APO Arts Academy, students take their first step into a new career. We encouraged students to realise their full potential; to strive for excellence by reinforcing the principles of discipline, strategy, hard work and dedication.
