Welcome to National Dance CATs
Professional training for young people
National Dance Centres for Advanced Training (CATs) identify children with exceptional potential in dance and develop their talent through pioneering programmes; creating and inspiring future generations of world class dancers and choreographers. Through the national provision of highly specialised training for young people, we cultivate artists at a critical stage in their development, in order to prepare them for entry into the world’s leading vocational dance schools and onto successful and rewarding careers in the arts.
The scheme has delivered training above and beyond our expectations
