Elite Programs

 
WE'RE CHANGING THE WAY KIDS ARE TAUGHT DANCE... COME AND BE A PART OF THE NEW MOVEMENT AT MAPA

MAPA's Elite Training 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 25 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 or Performing Arts.

Acceptance into these programs is through Audition only. Each stream offers both a Junior (7-12 yrs) and Senior (13-18 yrs) Elite Program.

Our first round of Auditions are 18th and 25th November 2018.

    marc cassidy classical ballet

    Marc grew up in Central Otago, New Zealand and moved to Australia in 1992 where he undertook formal classical training at the Australian Ballet School. After winning gold at the Geneé Awards in 1994, he was offered a contract with the Australian Ballet Company. He spent sixteen years dancing soloist and principal roles and was nominated for a "Helpman Award" for his interpretation of Romeo in John Cranko's "Romeo & Juliet". In 2008 he won a "Green Room Award" for "Best Male Dancer" for his role in Jerome Robbins, "Suite of Dances". His career with The Australian Ballet Company gave him the opportunity to study dance internationally but also perform at an elite level in Australia and overseas. In 2008 he joined the Royal New Zealand Ballet as a guest principal for their inaugural season of Don Quixoté. Working with his wife Leanne Stojmenov, directly with Lucette Aldous on Rudolf Nureyev's, Don Quixoté was a career highlight, as was dancing Petrushka in The Australian Ballet's simulcast. After retiring from dance in 2009, Marc became a Pilates Instructor and studied Remedial Massage. Currently he is studying the Vaganova training method for Elite Dance though the Australian Ballet School's teacher training course.
