The Australian Performing Arts Teachers Association (APATA) is Australia’s uniting body for teachers and educators in the performing arts.
The APATA National Awards Program shines a light on our community’s most inspirational performing arts educators and the significant role of educators working in the performing arts, and the wider community, celebrating achievement and contribution.
APATA is a dynamic and progressive body for performing arts teachers and educators who work, practice, develop, nurture, and dedicate their life’s work to creating artistic and creative generations for today and tomorrow.
Excellence across all elements of the performing arts industry is recognised including dance, music, theatre, musical theatre, opera, comedy, circus, and culture through to those practitioners who develop our writers, designers, producers, directors, managers, administrators, and technical production experts.
APATA is for teachers & educators developing the future of our industry!
