Starting with a 2-hour practical session consisting of a contemporary technique class followed by a creative class.

After the practical session there will be an open discussion in small groups, to help us get to know you a little better.

There will be no individual interviews on the day, instead some participants may be invited to take part in a digital interview over Zoom with members of the CAT team in the week following the audition.

Remember we are looking for potential and commitment not necessarily previous dance experience.
