Certificate IV in Dance
CUA40113 Certificate IV in Dance

Delivery - Full Time.  Entry by audition only





While NBT focuses on classical ballet, using a mix of Open classes and the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet Syllabus as the basis of training, there is also an emphasis on becoming a complete and well rounded dancer. These Certificates assist in that aim by structuring the course of study over a variety of related subjects.
Students  wishing to attend our full time course, but do not wish to undertake the Certificate of Dance will do practical assessments along side the certificate studies time. As with International  students they will  be issued with an assessment report at the end of the year.

Our Full Time Dancers train apporximately 30 hours a week, Tuesday-Saturday. In addition, Full Time Dancers will have access to all the after school classes.

The Full Time Program is designed for the serious student wishing to pursue a career in dance. The course aims to increase, improve, and refine technique, strength, knowledge and presentation. In addition, students in the program will have the opportunity to receive private coaching, helping to build them into not only stronger technicians and dancers, but also intelligent artists - ultimately preparing the student to enter directly into a career with a professional ballet company.

NBT annually performs classical ballet productions – such as Cinderella, Paquita, The Nutcracker &   Swan Lake Act II
All of NBT’s teachers are ex-professionals with substantial careers as professional dancers, and many years of teaching experience.  

This is a ballet based course only.  Academic studies can be continued through the Department of Distance Education or Home schooling, arranged by individual students and families. NBT will provide facilities and study time, built into the daily schedule as needed.

“Newcastle Ballet Theatre reflects the people that Rider and Kristy are: nurturing and professional. Having a successful professional career themselves, they not only understand the physical technique needed for a professional career but also the mental strength that is equally important. 
I wouldn’t be the dancer or person I am today, if it hadn’t been for their wealth of knowledge and continual guidance.
Rebecca Mottin

Bec was accepted into the Australia conservatoire of Ballet in 2014 and went on to receive a contract for Swan Lake at the Albert Hall, London, with the English National Ballet

Non Certificate Course
Dancers wishing to pursue full time training without studying toward a Certificate, are welcome at NBT.  As the course is ballet based, dancers who have already achieved a qualification at or above a Certificate IV, or who simply want to train in the studio, will benefit greatly from NBT’s well regarded faculty and training methods.
Whether pursuing a government accredited qualification, or simply wishing to improve technique, immersion in NBT’s training will strengthen and mature any dancer who commits to the work required.

Certificate III in Dance
CUA30113 Certificate III in Dance

Delivery Part Time through our Transitions Program

CUA30113 Certificate III in Dance

This Certificate is a wonderful introduction to more intensive vocational dance training. Structured with classical ballet as the focus, dancers will strengthen and improve their pointe work, partnering skills, and contemporary training, as well as learn repertoire, & rehearse for and participate in two performances annually. The theory work associated with Certificate III in Dance begins to challenge younger dancers to look critically at their own artistry and the needs of their bodies to perform at the highest level possible.    



 

In 2018 Newcastle Ballet Theatre is proud to introduce our  PART TIME TRANSITIONS PROGRAM.

A 1½ days per week intensive training program, with the option to  join our Saturday classes as well.  Offering a CUA30113 Certificate III in Dance.
This program is, in part, in conjunction with Hunter School of Performing Arts. While HSPA students must be in Year 9 or 10, the Transitions Program is open to Intermediate and Advanced dancers regardless of academic year, school, or studio affiliation.  If your academic school requires more information regarding the structure of the Transitions Program, we will be happy to speak with them.

Dance and theory classes will run Monday afternoons, with dance classes on Wednesdays during the Full Time schedule. As NBT’s Full Time Program runs Tuesday through Saturday, dancers in the Transitions Program will have the option of joining into the Full Time schedule on Saturdays as well, though not required. On these combined days, Transitions dancers will be completely integrated into our Certificate IV and Diploma of Dance classes, helping them gain strength and experience, as well as first hand knowledge of what constitutes Full Time training.
