From small beginnings in inner-city Leeds, Phoenix Dance Theatre has grown to be one of the UKs leading contemporary dance companies. For over three decades Phoenix has performed, educated and inspired people across the globe, often taking dance to people who have never experienced the arts live before.
As a repertory dance company Phoenix has a clearly articulated artistic vision that places diversity at its heart – diversity of the artists commissioned, the work it produces, the company of dancers and the people it reaches. The company employs eight full time exceptionally talented dancers and each year new works are commissioned from a range of choreographers – from the biggest names in dance to new and emerging talent on the first step of their career. The works created are curated as mixed bills and tour extensively across the UK and overseas.
