For our School Students:

We know some School Student love to dance and perform at any chance that get. Apan has a great atmosphere, industry qualified trainers, national and international technical experts and performance opportunities. Many dance school student have also approached us through our previous years, stating they would like to participate in our program, however are prohibited by the secondary school, or other reasons they weren't allowed to miss a day. We listened, we wanted to present a solution that would not affect schooling, or dance school time which is so valuable training, and gain WACE achievements.

Why spend time doing a Certificate that you might not enjoy, or ever use. When now- you can complete your Certificate II with Apan, doing something you love and it count towards your WACE?
