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.
