The Helpmann Academy was formed in 1994 as a partnership of the major tertiary arts training institutions in South Australia. It brings together the skills and resources of South Australia's universities and TAFE SA, with courses in music, dance, drama, directing, visual arts, technical theatre production and design. It is named in honour of Sir Robert Helpmann, a famous Australian dancer.

The Academy's Board of Governors consists of Vice Chancellors from South Australia's three universities, the Chief Executive of the South Australian Government Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology (DFEEST), or their delegates, and leading representatives of the arts and business sectors.


The Academy is funded by the government via each university and institution contributing an equal amount of money, and by the Helmann Foundation Board which sources money via philanthropic arts supporters . The main sources of its funding is via mentorships and one major function "Maestroes and apprentices" held annually .

Overseas connections

The Academy schools have strong links with overseas arts institutions, exchanges take place in the visual arts, drama, dance and music with New Zealand, United States of America, Indonesia, Japan, China, and Europe. Visits by performers and artists from around the world are encouraged.
