3d Arts Academy classes are offered at all levels in Dance, Drama and/or Music (Vocals).

Information for Students and Parents 

Students from Ages 4 to Adult can enrol in a variety of classes depending on age and experience in Dance, Drama and/or Music. Classes run on Tuesday afternoon at our Croydon site, and Thursday afternoons and evenings at our Burwood site.  Students may choose to enrol in dance, drama and music classes at the most appropriate level, or they may choose to enrol in only one, or two disciplines.

A light afternoon tea is provided for all junior students at the changeover between classes. Afternoon tea, including tea and coffee, is also provided for parents. Our hosts are there to assist with signing in and fee payment, and will do everything they can to make everyone feel welcome and safe. We invite parents to relax with other families in our welcome area.

All students perform annually in our Spring Production and often throughout the year at community performances, fetes, festivals and seasonal events. We aim to create opportunities for students to perform out in the community as often as possible.


Students do not require specialised uniforms for classes, however we encourage students to purchase their own 3dArts Company t-shirt ($20 ordered at the beginning and middle of the year). 


All junior classes are $5.00 (Youth Classes $10.00). We strongly encourage all families to pay term fees at the commencement of each term by bank deposit, however students are most welcome to arrange casual payments when signing in if needed. 3d Arts exists to create opportunities for all young people. We invite you to talk to us if we can support you in any way financially.


We welcome students from entry to professional level to join our classes. Enrol now by downloading our welcome pack and enrolment form or find out more by contacting us. Please note that some classes are already at capacity and places are limited. Whilst we will do everything we can to create space for everyone, there may be a waiting list for some classes. A class timetable will be posted early each year.

As a not-for-profit organisation, 3d Arts classes are heavily subsidised and we rely on donations from our supporters to continue our work in the community. Please consider giving a financial gift to support young people in the arts by contributing a production donation during production season, or by completing a supporter form on our website and becoming a regular support partner.
