"DanceEast has been a part of my life since I was quite young. I took part in Summer Schools here and Workshops. DanceEast has also provided me with the opportunity to watch performances and dance in the studio theatre. I auditioned and joined the CAT scheme aged 11, where I discovered my love of contemporary dance and creative work. The CAT scheme has challenged me and really opened up my eyes to the dance world, overall changing my ‘hobby’ into something I am seriously looking at as a career path; a future I wouldn’t be thinking of without DanceEast."
