Introduction

Prepare for your upcoming dance auditions with our weekend intensive workshop!

This course is an immersive experience, providing an insight into the audition process and a hands on experience of VCA Dance. This practical two-day workshop is designed to assist students with how best to prepare for a tertiary dance school audition.

Focusing primarily, but not exclusively, on VCA Dance, it will also provide an insight into what a tertiary dance school is looking for in a potential student through the audition process. Led by VCA Dance leaders, the workshop is held over two days in order to provide potential for development through feedback.



Staff from School of Dance at the Victorian College of the Arts  who will be guiding you in the workshop include:

Brett Daffy has lectured and choreographed at the VCA, Deakin University, University of Western Sydney- Nepean, University of New South Wales and at the Centre for the Performing Arts Adelaide as well as performed, choreographed and conducted workshops throughout Australia, and internationally. He is also a founding member of Chunky Move and previously worked with Lucy Guerin Inc, Dance North, Dance Works, The Australian Choreographic Ensemble, Vis-a-Vis Dance Canberra and Darc Swan.

Linda Sastradipradja has previously graduated from the VCA School of Dance with Distinctions and is currently a PhD candidate. An international performer, Sastradipradja has danced with various artists and companies including Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project, Sara Rudner, Molissa Fenley, City Contemporary Dance Co, Dance Exchange, Opera Australia, Dance Works and performed with Trisha Brown Company.

Jenny Kinder, Head of School of Dance at Victorian College of the Arts, will also be giving an opening speech.
