NSCD CAT – Stage 1 Remote Auditions

We audition in two stages for this programme. Due to the impact of coronavirus/COVID-19 we will now be asking all our applicants to audition remotely for Stage 1, instead of attending a face-to-face audition. This means submitting links to video footage as part of your application.

Previous dance experience is not necessary as we are looking for young people with enthusiasm, potential and commitment to training as a contemporary dancer.


Deadline to submit: Saturday 16th May 2020

Please read the remote audition guidance sheet before you apply.

To audition remotely you will need to submit videos of you:

  • Introducing yourself and explaining why you would like to gain a place on the scheme
  • Performing a set phrase of contemporary dance technique (see guidance sheet)
  • Performing your responses to a set creative task (see guidance sheet)

You will need to submit 3 links in total, one for each of the sections listed above. You will be asked to enter your links towards the end of the application form.

You can start and save your application and return to it at any time.

This will then need to be uploaded via the online application form on the website here

NSCD auditions all applicants and our audition process is designed to assess your potential as a dance artist and your suitability for our courses. We welcome all applicants regardless of disability, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or religion.

Start Date: 16 May 2020 12:00 AM

End Date: 16 May 2020 05:00 PM
