PRE-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM

‘Ignite your Potential’

Launch Performing Arts Centre is proud to be offering a new dance training program specifically designed to nurture the individual talent of the artist to ensure they have the best possible chance of success.

Our Pre-Professional program takes a blended training approach that includes highly specialised dance training in both technical and commercial genres as well as personalised mentoring in the business aspects of becoming a successful commercial dancer.

With strictly limited spots available across our range of courses, we are dedicated to ensuring you get one on one attention in both class and mentoring sessions. It is essential as an artist that you discover who you are and where you want to go and that you train in all areas, focusing on improving both strengths and weaknesses.

 A DANCE PROGRAM WITH TOTAL FLEXIBILITY

Our courses are ideal for students who are wanting to train within a professional environment with the intention of pursuing a career in the industry. The program is designed for students wishing to maintain longevity within the Performing Arts Industry. There are so many different and exciting pathways one can take within this industry, it is our job to guide and mentor you down your ideal path to ensure your best possible chance of success.

We offer a range of nationally recognised certificate qualifications within our Pre-Professional program.

Choose the certification level that suits you while still taking full advantage of the dance training and mentoring available within the program. If you choose a national qualification course, you complete extra hours allocated to theory and assessments in which assistance in tutoring is available.
