The Graduate College of Dance established in 1973 is one of Australia’s leading vocational dance schools. The College trains students to excel both nationally and internationally and continues to produce elite dancers for leading dance schools and companies in Australia and around the world.
Talented students are prepared for the profession in a supportive and encouraging environment, and trained by distinguished, internationally recognised teachers including ex-professionals.
A progressive system of training from age 4 has been developed by drawing upon valuable traditions from different schools of classical ballet, retaining the best, while embracing the demands of classical dance technique as is required of professional dancers today. The final 3 years of study are endorsed by the Curriculum Council of Western Australia. Students completing each of these years of study gain points towards WACE.
The Graduate College of Dance believes it is necessary that all students have a broad-based comprehensive education that equips them to pursue vocations, not only in dance and the allied arts, but also in areas outside dance.
The Graduate College of Dance offers a range of performance experiences, with a major public season held each year in Perth.
Having celebrated their 40th Anniversary in 2013, The Graduate College of Dance remains committed to providing elite dance training within a stimulating environment.
The Graduate College of Dance is located in Perth, Western Australia within the grounds of Perth Modern School, Subiaco. The campus at our Perth Dance School consists of purpose-built facilities that are considered to be amongst the best in Western Australia. Our ballet classes and dance classes are held in spacious dance studios with change-rooms, shower facilities and lecture rooms.
