CAT CAMBRIDGE TASTER DAY

Mon 19 Feb
10-16yrs...

DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) is excited to host our Cambridge Taster Day.

This will be a day filled with fun, excitement, and practical workshops for young dancers to come together and share their creativity and get a taste of the DanceEast CAT Training. This free taster day is aimed at participants aged 10-16. You will take part in contemporary, creative and hip hop workshops led by the fantastic DanceEast CAT tutors. You will also be accompanied by live music from our CAT musicians. Whatever your previous dance experience, come and take part in an afternoon of inspiring workshops!

All workshops will give young people a chance to develop their confidence, be creative, get moving and to try something new (or hone an existing skill). You will also get the opportunity to talk with the CAT team and find out more about the DanceEast CAT.

We ask that parents/carers also attend the Taster Day to listen to a presentation about the programme, speak with the CAT team and find out more about the DanceEast CAT.

It’s a day to have fun, try something new, work with other like-mined people, and explore creativity in a safe and supportive environment.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to unleash your inner dancer!

 

There are also CAT Taster Days in Ipswich and Norwich.

Taster workshops are FREE to attend, but places must be booked in advance.
