Interested in Centre for Advanced Training (CAT)?

Entry on to the scheme is through audition only and there are two stages to the process:

  1. Attend an Open Day. CAT Open Days allow potential students to learn more about the scheme and gain more technical and creative experience.
  2. During the Open Day, dancers may be selected to attend a final audition. Successful auditionees from this round will be offered a coveted place on the NSCD CAT scheme.

Previous dance experience is not necessary as we are looking for young people with enthusiasm, potential and commitment to training as a contemporary dancer.
