CAT – What can you expect?
Our students work with a large team of professional dance artists and other like-minded young people from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We look for young people from the East of England with strong physical awareness, creativity and the ability to work as part of a team and independently.
At the weekends we train all day on either Saturday (introductory group) or Sunday at the Jerwood DanceHouse, Ipswich. We also have midweek classes in Ipswich, Norwich and Cambridge to accommodate training with students’ school commitments.
OUR CORE CLASSES INCLUDE:
- Contemporary Technique
- Ballet Technique
- Health Studies
- Creative Studies
In addition to our weekly classes, we offer enrichment activities and additional support, including:
- Physical Health Support: access to a physiotherapist and the Health Team
- Audition support and preparation
- Theatre trips
- Spring and Summer Intensives
- Projects and workshops
Our curriculum gives a strong basic grounding in technical and creative skills. It’s an ideal introduction to the wider dance profession, enabling all students to apply to a range of dance colleges, conservatoires, and universities should they wish to.
