Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts

Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts logoThe Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) is an inspirational centre of training excellence and innovation for contemporary dance, music, and theatre.

Vibrant and diverse, we are the only centre in Australia offering nationally accredited courses that incorporate all performing arts genres, including classes dedicated to Indigenous cultural fusion.

Students come to ACPA’s state-of-the-art studios in Brisbane from communities all over Australia. They come to experience a learning environment which is challenging, demanding, motivating and, above all, nurturing of the talents of our young and emerging artists.

Our strong global network ensures ACPA students are trained by industry experts, to build the technical capability and confidence they need for professional public performances and to launch careers in the arts and entertainment sectors.

Indigenous and non-Indigenous students are welcome, with enrolment by invitation following a successful audition.
