THE AUSTRALIAN PERFORMING ARTS CONSERVATORY
A HISTORY OF SUCCESS
The Australian Performing Arts Conservatory (APAC) is an accomplished performing arts training provider. Founded in 1993 with a view to fill a gap in Australian actor training, the dream was to build an institution driven by a fusion of artistic talents. With a solid history teaching an American based acting model, in our Advanced Diploma of Screen and Stage Acting, the Conservatory has thrived on an enduring reputation as The Actors Conservatory. Due to phenomenal growth and expansion, TPAC rebranded to The Performing Arts Conservatory in 2014 to encompass all Performing Arts. APAC has retained its legacy of teaching students in a supportive environment, guiding them with career planning and industry advice long after graduation. The Conservatory prides itself on the many graduates who have gone on to successfully work in film, television, and theatre acting around the world.
creative industries, it all begins with the right training.
A FUTURE OF POSSIBILITIES
In order to create an atmosphere of collaborative synthesis, the Conservatory expanded its product base in 2014. The first move came with the introduction of the CUA60615 Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media. One of the many distinctive points of difference with our Screen and Media course is The Conservatory is Australia’s first 3D and 2D film school. Having the acting school on the same premises APAC, also has the exclusive opportunity to teach our film students how to direct and collaborate with trained actors. Our script analysis, acting, and directing units are core elements we are proud to include in our film course and are not found elsewhere. The next move came with the 10441NAT Advanced Diploma of Commercial Song and Dance Performance. This unique course was built and developed by APAC in conjunction with highly acclaimed industry experts and consultants, and with the music video industry in mind. Combining singing and dancing together (two courses in one) for storytelling performance value, filling an essential gap in the market no one else can deliver. APAC offers Brisbane’s performing arts students an exceptional experience, a creative hub of artists working together—to create and grow.
