Progression Routes into CAT
All of these classes have been identified as quality provision that will focus on technique skills and creative processes and many will also have additional opportunities to be involved in intensive projects and performances.
Entry into the youth companies is via audition. It is the hope that these youth companies engage young people with potential talent that could progress onto to CAT. These companies/classes are also accessed by current CAT students as mid - week provision, closer to home.
