Excellence Program


Dancers aged between 12-18 years at Sparks DC may audition for our Excellence Program. We provide the opportunity for our talented students wanting to pursue a career in the industry with pre-professional training in all styles of dance.

Dance Excellence provides the foundation for many of Australia’s next successful professional dancers and can lead to a diploma qualification and credit points towards your year 12 QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education).

12-15 years – one half day or substitute for school sports via Principal agreement.
15-18 years – one half day or full day (substitute for school sports or non op classes)

Dance excellence is by audition only. Fees, terms and conditions apply. In addition Sparks DC will also offer to selected year 11 and 12 students the necessary information for our teacher training program and Certificate III in Community Recreation, to study to become an industry recognised registered dance teacher in either Jazz or Ballet.
