Professional Intensive 2017
Monday 10th – Friday 14th July
Phoenix Dance Theatre is proud to host our fourth Professional Intensive, run from our state of the arts dance building in Leeds City Centre. For the first time, we are excited to invite a guest artist to lead the process.
The five-day intensive provides a unique opportunity to connect with the company dancers, Artistic Director Sharon Watson and award winning Henri Oguike. In 1999 Henri Oguike Dance Company was formed, rapidly gaining an outstanding reputation, before touring extensively. Since then, Oguike has been commissioned to create work for Holland Dance Festival, Ballet Black, Scottish Dance Theatre, Wired Ariel and the highly technical piece ‘Signal’ for Phoenix Dance Theatre.
The intensive aims to challenge and inspire professional dance artists, final year and recent graduates, by building their contemporary dance practice through a series of classes, workshops and creative sessions with the opportunity to focus on audition practice and solo preparation.
Open to UK-based and international dance artists, the intensive allows the participants the chance to explore work from Phoenix Dance Theatre’s extensive repertoire.
