The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) at Edith Cowan University is one of the world’s leading performing arts academies. WAAPA is recognised nationally and internationally for the quality of its graduates. It provides the most comprehensive range of performing arts training in Australia – both on stage and behind the scenes. Entry into each course is competitive, and prospective students undertake an audition and/or an interview as part of the application process.
Each year students, staff and critically acclaimed guest artists collaborate to present hundreds of performances across a range of concerts, plays, dance, music theatre, opera and film. Many of these take place in WAAPA’s own performance venues at ECU’s Mount Lawley Campus. Exciting community partnerships also enable WAAPA to perform in a diverse range of spaces in the Perth metropolitan area, and beyond.
