THE GRADUATE COLLEGE OF DANCE SENIOR SCHOOL PERTH BALLET CLASSES
The Senior School dance programme is comprised of five levels, beginning with Level 4 culminating with Level 8. An additional Postgraduate year is available for those wishing to refine their work further.
At the Graduate College we value educational advancement as well as the commitment to dance and therefore offer the equivalent standard and quality of training as the full time schools but on a part time basis, and at a lower cost. This will allow you to continue your education as well as us assisting you to develop fully as a dancer. Our track record in comparison to the other institutions proves this method is just as effective in developing your ballet skills without compromising your education or work.
Spots are now available in our senior school classes as well as Private Coaching now being offered.
Four of our Alumni Jayden White, Charlotte Sofield, Liam Green and Paige Macliver talk about the value of balancing academic studies with training at the College in the short videos below.

Classical ballet classes are available in Perth at The Graduate College of Dance to students studying the 2A/2B DAN & 3A/3B DAN at their academic school.
