In late summer 2016, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater worked, for the first time, with gifted and talented young dancers from Centres for Advanced Training across the UK, in a new partnership between Dance Consortium and DanceEast.
Fourteen talented DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training students took to the stage at Gary Avis & Friends’ Dance for Suffolk gala performances at Ipswich Regent in September 2016.
In October 2016 vibrant young musicians and dancers from Aldeburgh Young Musicians and DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training came together to collaborate with composer Gavin Higgins and choreographer Alexander Whitley.
In November 2016 at the Jerwood DanceHouse, DanceEast CAT students performed alongside Yael Flexer in a full professional production.
DanceEast CAT also offers students the opportunity to get involved in incredible projects every year. These can result in professional performances, working with students from CAT’s across the UK, and learning from internationally-renowned choreographers and artists.
