Join the Academy of Northern Ballet and Northern School of Contemporary Dance for FREE Taster Workshops in Doncaster. Centres for Advanced Training (CAT) offer outstanding and accessible training to young people with exceptional potential in dance and this is a chance to get a flavour of what it’s like to train on a CAT programme.
This free ballet class is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring dancers to find out more about the training technique used on our professional training programme. It will include body conditioning and a ballet technique class led by Cara O’Shea, Head of Lower Levels on the CAT programme.
These Taster Workshops are suitable for both boys and girls. To find the workshop content comfortable we recommend that participants already attend one regular ballet class a week.
Participants should be accompanied by an adult.

There are two stages to the audition process:
This session enables potential students and their families to learn more about the scheme. The half day session includes an introductory presentation to the scheme followed by a practical contemporary technique and creative class. Participants will then be notified if they have been selected to go through to stage two of the audition process.
If this audition is during your school term and you would like to attend, please email Cat@nscd.ac.uk to let us know,
This second stage of auditions will focus more specifically on contemporary technique and improvisation followed by individual solo performances and group interviews. Successful auditionees from this round will be offered a coveted place on the NSCD CAT scheme.
Previous dance experience is not necessary as we are looking for young people with enthusiasm, potential and commitment to training as a contemporary dancer.
