" “ED5 offers one of the most outstanding Performing Arts Courses in Australia. The tutors that mentor and groom the students have a wealth of knowledge and are all 'working artists' in the industry that are well connected and can potentially offer numerous opportunities.− PJ Clarke (Owner/Director JEEP Management)
If you want a career in the Entertainment Industry, whether as a performer, instructor or as creative, ED5 will deliver you the insight needed to help develop your career in the right direction. You are only ever in your ultimate peak condition when in training and to get the edge on the competition, you need to make this sacrifice at a young age.
The difference of doing a 2 year Advanced Diploma as opposed to only one year is that you are giving yourself the best opportunities to be educated by these professionals to place yourself into a very competitive market!
This Course offers you the ability to be a triple threat and as an agent, we need multi skilled artists that can potentially be marketed in many ways.
In previous years Jeep Management recruited a high ratio of our annual intake from ED5 and they have been successful in gaining great opportunities.
Put your money where the action is and book into ED5!"

"ED5 gave me the platform to begin my career as a professional performer in the industry. The training is intense and rewarding which changed me as a person and as a performer. To be able to benefit from the talented and inspiring William Forsythe, is a reason to attend on its own!
When it came to auditioning I felt prepared and truly credit them as the reason I landed my first gig at Universal Studio's Japan. Without the guidance I received there, I wouldn't be where I am today."− Chloe Zuel Performer / ED5International Graduate (Les Miserables, Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Universal Studios Japan)
