VCE VET Dance
Secondary School Teacher, Dance Teacher,

Why I chose VET
I chose VET so I could incorporate my passion for the performing arts with my schooling. I wanted to focus on learning about the current performing arts industry and preparing to work in the industry after school.
What I got out of VET
VET Dance gave me opportunities to participate in mock and real auditions, develop my choreography skills, develop my performance skills and build my performing arts network. I was able to develop a resume for the performing arts industry and gain knowledge about dance psychology, nutrition, fitness, safe dance practices and anatomy to understand the importance of staying physically and mentally healthy.
My VET success story
The knowledge and network I gained from the VET Dance course also allowed me to gain employment in the performing arts industry, giving me the opportunity to earn money while I was at university. I was also fortunate enough to help teach the VET Dance course and many other classes at Isolation Performing Arts Studio. It was great to be able to pass on my skills and knowledge to the next generation of students.
Take every opportunity to gain experience and knowledge from industry-based teachers and professionals. If you can combine a passion of yours with school it makes learning so much easier and enjoyable because you're excited to go to class every week!
