For applicants with little ballet experience, we hold a free pre-audition ballet workshop with the aim of dispelling any worries that applicants may have and to help familiarise them with basic positions, and vocabulary.
I have worked with a large number of the CAT schemes across the country but was so impressed with students of DanceEast CAT. The group were creative and had great technique as well as an intelligent and methodical approach to learning. By the end of the project they were performing and dancing with a maturity well beyond their years.
I am both extremely excited and saddened to be leaving DanceEast this year; on one hand, it is a step closer to achieving a professional career in ballet and becoming a greater artist, but it also means having to say goodbye to the wonderful teachers, choreographers and tutors who have passed down their knowledge and experience to help me achieve my dream. I never imagined, three years ago, that I would be in this situation, and I cannot thank them enough for their dedication and help.” DanceEast ex-student now studying at Central School of Ballet.

I’ve nearly finished my first full term at college and love it. I’m thankful for all the preparation CAT gave me. I have been invited to try out for auditions for 2015's Move It Dance Event and have been lucky enough to be selected, so I’ll be performing and representing Bird College.
