The West Midlands Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) is based at DanceXchange, Birmingham. The CAT course is part of the national Music and Dance Scheme, and is designed for young people between 11 and 16 who have passion, creativity, commitment, talent or potential in Dance, but need support to pursue their desire and ambition. DanceXchange, in partnership with sampad South Asian Arts, run the CAT course and offer high quality training in Contemporary dance, and the South Asian dance styles of Kathak and Bharatanatyam.
As part of the Outreach Programme, the West Midlands CAT is offering free dance workshops to specialist schools, youth groups and dance schools in the West Midlands region. This will involve a half-day taster workshop in the three dance styles (Contemporary, Kathak & Bharatanatyam) that the West Midlands CAT offers. These workshops are fully funded by the DCSF and are offered on a first come, first served basis. The workshop will look to boost awareness and understanding of the CAT course, and encourage gifted and talented students to audition for the 2010 programme.
