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.

Audition Process

Entry to the scheme is to audition in two stages. Due to safety guidelines as a result of COVID-19, we will be asking all our applicants to audition remotely for Stage 1, instead of attending a face-to-face audition. This means submitting links to video footage as part of your application.

Financial Information

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.
