Elite Programs

MAPA's Elite Programs are designed for committed and passionate students wishing to achieve their highest potential.

To ensure our students get the best hands on training, each program accepts only 20 students per year. Students accepted into these programs will have the opportunity to work closely with various well known Australian and International Choreographers from within the industry to provide personal mentoring and guidance to aspiring dancers and performers. It is our commitment to deliver a professional, cost effective and extensive training program so that students can immerse themselves deeply into their chosen stream of Classical Ballet, Performing Arts or Musical Theatre.

Acceptance into these programs is through Audition only. Each stream offers both a Junior (6-10 yrs) and Senior (11-17 yrs) Elite Program.

Our first round of Auditions were in December 2016. If you missed out, you can still audition during our upcoming Summer School (18-20 Jan) and Classical Ballet Workshop (28 Jan).
