The 2016 Performance Squad regime has been created to provide the most comprehensive and diverse competitive learning environment for our students.
Participating students will undertake additional training to their usual class schedule, which will consist of Saturday training session at a minimum.
In addition to professional training and coaching, all students will have the opportunity to purchase Performance Squad uniforms, provided at cost price, to be proudly worn as they represent the Academy as a team.

2016 solo Dates
Arête students will soon be donning their uniforms to represent the Academy not just on the competitive stage but during festivals and productions throughout the year.
Note: The ethos and family spirit that makes Arête so uniquely great is reflected in all aspects of our Academy. Thus, performance squad is not just about competition and winning but the teamwork, camaraderie and experience gained from performing live in front of an audience and adjudicator.
This exposure instils the skill sets and positive attitude that build young performers into confident and respected professionals. We hope our students will proudly uphold these attributes not only as they wear our uniform, but well into their lives there on after.
