Stageworx 101 and 102 programs take place over 1 year and teaches diversity in artistic training, encouraging students to find sustainable options for creative careers, whilst following their artistic passions.

Taking a maximum of 10 students onto the combined 101 and 102, allows a personalized focused on each students aims, objectives and ambitions. Much of the course epitomizes the use of the arts for social and human development and understanding, as well as assists its students with bridging the gap between training and finding professional work in the creative sector.

Founder and Principal of Stageworx; Gemma Marinus says; “We are living in a very different world to what we were 10 years ago and the pandemic only ignited the need for change within our creative sector. Creative students can now manage studying academically whilst following their passion of performance and our focus is allowing our 101 students to discover all the options available to them before streamlining training according to their discoveries in the 102 course.

Our students have secured a variety of positions including teaching positions overseas, booked touring contracts, secured recording deals, booked international cruise and hotel entertainment contracts, placements in video and film production companies, scholarship placements in overseas institutions, as well as started to understand how to set up successful creatively led businesses.”

ROAR! is a presentation of performances by the post matric students graduating from the Stageworx 101 and 102 courses and is directed by the multi-talented Maestro Bryan Schimmel and choreographed by Dillonne Prince, Mullin Krienke and Sarah Falconer. Bryan Schimmel (also a teacher at Stageworx) also musically directed the event.
