Previous dance experience is not necessary as we are looking for young people with enthusiasm, potential and commitment to training as Contemporary, Bharatanatyam or Kathak dancers.
Entry to the scheme is to audition in two stages. We will ask you to submit links to video footage as part of your application online before you book onto our Stage 1 audition. If successful, you will then be invited to a Stage 2 audition. All of our auditions will be face-to-face in our studios subject to Government guidance and our Covid-19 safety procedures.
The CAT programme is funded by the Department for Education’s (DfE) Music and Dance Scheme (MDS). The DfE offer grants which are means-tested based on family’s annual earnings per tax year, with deductions and allowances made for dependents in accordance with their guidelines.
Students who are eligible and who make sufficient progress will be entitled to receive financial assistance until they graduate or exit from the programme.
