CAT Graduates 

“Before I joined the CAT, I had dabbled in my childhood, teaching myself Michael Jackson routines and things I found on YouTube. Then I met friends who had some training and began sharing with me.

Compared to my peers in the industry I think I have a greater level of professionalism which I gained from the CAT programme and my tutors. That includes; punctuality, attitude and pushing to be/do my best” read more

“I discovered the CAT through my secondary school. The CAT team came to give a workshop and recommended that some of the students should audition.

Being part of the CAT taught me of the different possibilities there are in dance. The scheme gave me a taste of what dance schools would be like and through working with such a variety of different people gave me a glimpse of how broad contemporary dance is” read more
