APO is a key player in the provision of artistic talent for a range of theatrical productions, ballet & dance companies & commercial events in Australia and overseas. On stage & screen, our graduate students are our ambassadors on a global scale.
Like any professional career, the performing arts disciplines require training: a systematic, sustained and intensive physical and mental training methodology, in preparation for the demands of the professional theatre, dance & entertainment industries. The current professional climate requires artists to possess more than just a belief in themselves. Discipline, commitment and strong technical foundations, are all qualities that feature strongly with successful performers who build viable and sustainable careers.
Our courses have a strong focus on practical components and are performance based; supported by allied studies and theoretical units.
