What is VCE VET Dance

  • VCE VET Dance is a VCE study that awards competent students with the Certificate II in dance, as well as providing students with a VCE study score (if opted to do so) which can contribute to their ATAR score when they conclude their VCE studies.

  • It is a VET (Vocational Education and Training) subject which means that it is designed as a pre-vocational course, and will prepare students for further (tertiary) training in dance as a teacher, performer or choreographer.

  • The course provides students with the opportunity to acquire and develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in a range of areas within the 21st century arts industry. This course provides students with a tangible insight into a career in the performing arts.
