Dance City is looking for dancers who show talent in dance and its aim is to inspire, enthuse and empower gifted young dancers to fulfil their creative potential.

If you love it as much as we think you will, there is the chance to audition to be part of our brand new Street Dance Centre for Advanced Training (CAT). We’re launching it this September and it is a huge opportunity for gifted and talented dancers age 10-16 to get absolutely world class training and become part of an amazing street dance crew.

Money is no barrier because we are funded by the Department for Education and grants are available to cover all or part of the tuition fees.

For young people age 10-16 yrs who want to know more about the brand new Dance City CAT Street Dance in Sunderland, we are holding another Taster Weekend on 24 and 25 July! Our last Taster Weekend was a huge success and brought on many applications for the programme which starts this September.
