Life at NAISDA

NAISDA Dance College is Australia’s leading First Nations dance and performing arts training organisation. Our world-class expertise in cultural and creative training gives you the skills, qualifications and confidence to follow your passions, realise your dreams and equip you for a successful career in the arts.

Training at NAISDA includes practical dance technique, theory classes as well as cultural classes. Throughout the year, Developing Artists may participate in a variety of performances and workshops within the community and at corporate events. Each course also includes two performance seasons each year at professional theatres.

Your study will include a unique cultural residency experience each year. Developing Artists travel and live with either an Aboriginal or a Torres Strait Islander community for one week. This experience creates the essential close connection that grounds Developing Artists in cultural dance understanding and technique.
