GBT Academy

Live your dream...

The main driving force behind the GBT Academy is the delivery of meticulous training and the wholistic wellbeing of our students. 

The GBT Academy course is run during the school day and is designed to nurture and prepare our students for placement into company level finishing schools. The program is modelled on the training level and curriculum of such programs to ensure students receive the best possible preparation to allow them to pursue a professional career in dance. Students may attend the course from half a day per week, number of days will be determined with the teacher, parents and students to cater for individual needs.

 

    • GBTA is open to students from M2+ in 2021.

    • Admission to the GBTA Program is by application & audition.

    • GBTA students may attend after hours classes at GBT for RAD exams, Jazz, Tap & Contemporary if they wish.

    • GBTA students are generally also expected to join the appropriate performance group for their syllabus level/age.

 

Students also have access to pilates studio sessions, and physiotherapist visits with Glenbrook Physiotherapy. In addition to the Academy program, after hours classes may also be taken which include RAD syllabus, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Tap, Contemporary and Performance Groups.

Academic education for GBT Academy students is by arrangement with the students Academic school. We have an official arrangement for student leave to attend the part-time program with Blaxland High School and have individual arrangements with several other primary & high schools.

We also offer a GBTA Associates program. This program is designed for talented students from 11yrs+ and run on 1 week per term  and 1 holiday workshop per year. The program has been created to allow students to experience extension & enrichment in an elite level training environment to complement their dance studies at their home studio. It also offers the perfect stepping stone into the full GBTA program at a later date.

As our intake is capped and entry only offered to suitably dedicated dancers, we are able to offer meticulous elite level training in a bespoke program without students having to forgo their academic education. .
