What is the Centre for Advanced Training? 

Centres for Advanced Training (CATs) in dance help identify, and assist, young people with exceptional potential, regardless of their personal circumstances, to benefit from world-class specialist training. Successful applicants are able to access highly specialist dance training in their local area, whilst continuing to live at home. Students travel to attend the Swindon Contemporary Programme from Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. The CAT supports travel costs and training fees. 

CAT’s operate from host organisations recognised for their excellence and commitment to the arts and vocational training. Each partner is unique in their delivery of the scheme some embracing Contemporary Dance whilst others focus on other styles. To find out more about joining attend an open day.
