Certificate IV in Dance
CUA40113 Certificate IV in Dance -
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.

“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.“

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.
