Newcastle Ballet Theatre's Full Time Program is designed for the serious student wishing to pursue a career in dance. Our program runs 5 days a week, with around 30 studio hours per week. The program aims to increase, improve, and refine technique, strength, knowledge and presentation. In addition to the Full Time hours, all Full Time dancers have access to all studio classes, inclusive of Full Time fees, as well as Private Coaching, helping to build not only stronger technicians and dancers, but also well rounded and intelligent artists
The Australian Conservatoire of Ballet Syllabus, as well as Open Ballet Classes taught by Ex-Professionals makes NBT stands out as a training institution in Australia.
NBT has placed students into the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet, the Australian Ballet School, Rambert School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance, Queensland Ballet Pre-Professional Year, & Victorian State Ballet.
“NBTs Full Time Program is fantastic. It's a well-rounded program with all of the essential classes that will improve your technique and creativity. The inclusion of dance appreciation, dance history and choreography subjects provide a depth of knowledge that is so beneficial later in your career. The teachers have so much expertise and energy to share and really get personal with you so that you can push yourself to the limits of your ability.” - Lewis Formby, former NBT student & now Level 8 at The Australian Ballet School
