Holiday Programs

The Australian School of Performing Art’s two-day ‘Take the Stage’ holiday program brings the magic of the performing arts to the school holidays! Through interactive, dynamic workshops in song, dance and drama, girls and boys aged 5 to 14 are invited to discover and develop their inner performer!

Participants will be mentored by ASPA Education’s experienced team of performing arts specialists – accomplished singers, dancers and actors. Over two days, they will work together to produce and perform in an end-of-program showcase concert for friends and family.

With a variety of workshops for all ages and skill levels, ‘Take the Stage’ caters for first-time performers through to experienced young artists. Children develop skills in team work, confidence and stage presentation, and form connections with others with similar interests. Program managers make it a priority to participate in the sessions and help foster new friendships amongst the group. Participants leave the program with a real sense of achievement, all while having fun during their holidays!

Our next ‘Take the Stage’ program will run during the July 2018 school holidays.
