Meet Budi Miller: Head of Acting
"I’m an African American queer teaching artist who has spent his life changing the narrative of how actor training can be taught outside of the popular European and American norms of training. I strive for diverse learning that comes from selecting students from different ethnic, social economic backgrounds and gender identities, while staffing a diverse faculty that mirrors the student population. I believe that the strongest learning environments come from having an exceptionally talented, inclusive, and diverse student and faculty community."

Meet Bachelor of Fine Arts (Music Theatre) student, Sherry-Lee Watson
An Arrente woman from Alice Springs, Sherry-Lee Watson always wanted to perform. Now she's on her way to living her dream in Melbourne, studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Music Theatre) and excited to take the lessons she's learnt back to her hometown.
"I eventually want to become an academic and research the impact of the arts on Aboriginal communities and how to reestablish our connection to telling stories through song and dance. Aboriginal people are passionate and exciting storytellers as we have been doing it on the land for thousands of years. I want to work to make sure future generations will still have that opportunity."
Meet Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance) student, Kyle Ramboyong
"I was given advice from my first dance teacher in Darwin that the VCA would be a great place for me to explore my art in dance. The VCA dance program builds a dancer’s technique, choreographic ideas and creativity, artistry and the ability to understand the body in relation to movement mechanics."
