The Lowry CAT (Centre For Advanced Training)
"Part of a family of National CAT Schemes across the country, The Lowry CAT is a part-time, pre-vocational course that gives young people access to high quality dance training.
CATS help identify, and assist, young people with exceptional potential, regardless of their personal circumstances, to benefit from world-class specialist training as part of a broad and balanced education.
Students train in the disciplines of contemporary, ballet, contextual, creative and performance studies. The programme provides them with a clear training foundation supporting them to be versatile technicians and artists, whilst giving them an understanding of what a dance career may look like.
The CAT is funded by the Music and Dance Scheme through the Department of Education, providing financial support for families through means-tested grants."
