CAT Open Day
Are you aged 13-18 and want to join the NSCD Centre for Advanced Training (CAT)? Book a place to attend an Open Day; the first round of CAT auditions. During the Open Day, dancers may be selected to attend a final audition.
Each year we host a variety of dance workshops and continued professional development (CPD) opportunities for dance artists, teachers and students, as well open sessions for specific age groups.
Examples of previous workshops include:
The Learning & Participation team can also offer bespoke workshop packages across the Yorkshire region. These are designed to meet your project objectives, budget and time requirements, and can range from single workshops to one-off projects or longer-term programmes.
If you are a school the workshops can be linked to the curriculum and to specific topics – we have recently delivered workshops integrating Dance and Science for Primary Schools, supported Arts Week activities, delivered GCSE dance choreography workshops and arranged visits to Riley Theatre to watch our Access, Undergraduate and Postgraduate dance students perform.
Whether curriculum-based, out-of-hours provision or teacher-training, our Learning & Participation team will work with you. Please contact Tom Bowes on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.

NSCD’s postgraduate performance company VERVE also offers workshops to secondary schools and colleges during the course of their Spring tour. These workshops are based on current works from the tour and include a warm up, repertory and creative task supported with a resource pack for teachers.
