CAT call for young North West dancers

Dancers take part in a Lowry CAT dance session

Open to all young people interested in dance, aged 11-16 and living in the North West, The Lowry's Centre for Advanced Training in dance (CAT) open days offer dance workshops delivered by Lowry CAT dance artists. They are being held at the Salford venue on March 23 (2pm-6pm) and May 12 (10am-2pm).

No previous dance training is necessary, just a passion and aptitude for movement. There will be the opportunity to meet students currently training with CAT, and to learn more about the programme in action.

The open days will prepare young people to audition for The Lowry Centre for Advanced Training - part of the national CAT dance and music scheme, a part-time, pre-vocational course providing access to high quality dance training to young people with a passion for the art and who want to progress to full time training.

Alumni of the scheme have gone on to perform with companies such as Matthew Bourne's New Adventures, Motionhouse, Southpaw Dance Company, Jasmin Vardimon 2, Disneyland Paris, Fallen Angels Dance Theatre; VERVE Graduate Dance Company and many more.

A number of means-tested grants are available for families, allowing wide access across the North West.

Sally Wyatt, Centre for Advanced Training manager, said, We are looking for young people who demonstrate potential and enthusiasm for dance. We will be looking closely at the potential of each student, regardless of any previous dance experience and personal circumstances.”
