The Australian Centre Of Performing Arts (ACOPA) is dedicated to the promotion, support and growth of performing arts and artists.

At ACOPA we pride ourselves on the high quality and integrity of our course material and teaching staff. It is important to us that our students are presented with information, subjects and skills relevant to current industry trends and requirements, and are encouraged to discover, explore and challenge their own unique creativity and personal style.

1. Acting for Film with an International Perspective

2. Acting For Television / Commercials and Presentation Skills

3. Dancers / Cabaret / Burlesque Course

Our methods are based on a holistic approach whereby each student is guided towards developing creative, personal and professional levels of the highest individual standard, within a supportive environment.

At ACOPA we also ensure the provision of varied opportunities and avenues for advancement towards achieving professional goals. These include the opportunity to be represented by Australian Creative Talent Agency (ACT Agency) and to participate in film and theatrical productions through our professional alliance with Saddington Studios.

There will also be exciting opportunities to join our roving performance troupes or develop and perform pieces for presentation at our soon-to-be-launched Cabaret and Burlesque club, Club Voltaire.

Our four-storey premises, incorporating multiple studios in the heart of North Melbourne, are also available for hire as rehearsal, production, performance or gallery space. Contact us for further information.
