queensland performer’s academy


QPsenior is based on technical ability with an age guideline of 13 and over.

Exams: At this level students attending 3 applicable syllabus classes, senior pointe class, stretch and strengthening each week will be eligible to sit for a ballet exam the RAD and ATOD (at teacher discretion). CSTD tap exams may also be offered and we are no pleased to announce we offer jazz exams through ATOD!

Performance: Students will have the opportunity to be part of a commitment free performance group and their participation is strongly encouraged. Students will learn set choreography towards the last 15 minutes of every class that will be amalgamated to create a performance piece. There are no hidden rehearsal fees and no pressure to be part of these performances though it is recommended for this age group.

Buddy Scheme: At this level onwards and after a successful first year the buddy scheme will be offered again in 2018. The scheme offers a chance for students from senior levels to connect with students in our junior school. This program benefits both students creating unbreakable bonds, opportunities to learn teaching techniques and examine the breakdown of technical skills ultimately benefiting both students.
