CAT OPEN DAY

Sun 17 Mar
10-16yrs...

Interested in finding out more about the DanceEast CAT?

We are opening the studio doors to observe the DanceEast CAT in action. You will get the chance to see our current CAT students in action. You will also have a tour of the world-class facilities at the Jerwood DanceHouse.

The day is designed so that everyone can find out more about the DanceEast CAT regardless of previous dance experience, and is a great way to meet the CAT team, experience a taste of our training, and learn more about the programme.

You will gain an insight into CAT training, meet current CAT students and tutors, and observe classes accompanied by our musicians. There will also be a Q&A session with CAT students at the end of the day.
