Phoenix Youth Academy

Phoenix Youth Academy offers a high-quality training programme for talented young dancers (aged 13-19 years) interested in pursuing dance as a career. Students meet twice per week, developing their contemporary dance technique through working with recognised choreographers and Phoenix Dance Theatre’s company dancers. Academy members also participate in intensive courses during the school holidays, with regular performance opportunities at platforms across the UK.

Youth Academy graduates have gone on to successfully audition for numerous conservatoires, including:
London Contemporary Dance School, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Acceptance into the Academy is by audition only. The next auditions for the Phoenix Youth Academy Junior and Senior strands will take place on Sunday 26 June 2016.
