Dance City are proud to celebrate 10 years of CAT, the Centre for Advanced Training Programme.

The National Centres for Advanced Training in Dance nurture and inspire future generations of world class dancers, choreographers and dance practitioners. The Dance City CAT is one of nine centres across England, whose aim is to provide high quality, pre-vocational dance training to young people who show exceptional potential in dance. All of the Dance CATs are financially supported by the government’s Department for Education Gifted and Talented Scheme.

“Even after 10 years of teaching for CAT, I still find myself continually surprised by the talent and dedication of the students. It is great to watch their development and know that they are as motivated to learn as we are to teach.” Dance City CAT Tutor

A retrospective exhibition is being held at Dance City to celebrate 10 years, with photographs, case studies and testimonials
