Our Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) programme is pleased to invite education professionals to a high-quality CPD opportunity on Thursday 11 April 2019, available at the heavily subsidised rate of just £15 per person.

Taking place in our professional, purpose-built studios, the event will focus on how to identify and nurture gifted and talented students and offers an opportunity to learn how to support, develop and encourage creativity.

The day will involve practical workshops and seminars led by industry professionals who will equip you with the real-life, practical skills needed to enable both you and your students to reach their full potential. There will also be a networking lunch to meet other like-minded people across the Midlands. CPD certificates will be presented at the end of the day.


Who is the CPD day for? CAT home tutors, school teachers (both secondary and primary), youth dance leaders, community dance practitioners, artists looking to refresh their practice.  Contemporary, Kathak and Bharatanatyam styles will be included.


The Centre for Advanced Training for South Asian and Contemporary Dance (CAT)? It is an elite training opportunity for young people aged 11-18, who show exceptional talent and potential in Bharatanatyam, Kathak and Contemporary styles. The Contemporary strand, Dance Generation, recruits young people from the West Midlands, and the South Asian strand, Yuva Gati, is a national programme, recruiting students from across the country. The opportunity to study Bharatanatyam and Kathak at this elite level is unique to this CAT within the UK.

Funded by the Department of Education Music and Dance Scheme, the Birmingham CAT is led by DanceXchange in partnership with Sampad South Asian Arts and Heritage.
