A Sydney drama teacher has been charged with the alleged sexual assault of a woman more than a decade ago.

The man was arrested at Waverley Police Station yesterday two years after a strike force was formed to investigate the alleged sexual assault of a 19-year-old in 2009.

Detectives from Kings Cross Police Area Command were told a then-15-year-old girl began taking acting lessons in 2005 in Sydney with a male drama teacher, then aged 44.

The private lessons continued until 2009, NSW Police said.

Last February a home in Bondi was searched and multiple communications devices, storage devices and, videotapes were seized.

They were forensically examined.

Yesterday, the now 60-year-old was charged with sexual intercourse without consent.

He was granted conditional bail and will appear in the Downing Centre Local Court on July 13.

Inquiries are continuing under Strike Force Feurte.
