Phoenix Youth Academy Doncaster

Phoenix Dance Theatre, in partnership with Cast Theatre, run a satellite Youth Academy programme in Doncaster. Students attend one 90 minute session per week to develop excellent contemporary technique and performance skills.

We offer high-quality pre-vocational training programmes for young, aspiring dancers aged 13-18 who are interested in pursuing dance as a career. Throughout the year students work with current and former Phoenix Dance Theatre dancers and internationally acclaimed choreographers.

Dance pieces are created during intensive courses that take place during school holidays which are then showcased at various dance platforms across the UK.

Phoenix Dance Theatre is the UK’s leading contemporary dance company outside of London. For four decades we have performed, educated and inspired people across the UK and abroad. Phoenix Youth Academy was founded in Leeds in 2009. Since then, many of our graduates have gone on to successfully audition for numerous leading conservatoires including:

Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, London Contemporary Dance School, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, The Ailey School, Institute of the Arts Barcelona, Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, Bird College, Laine Theatre Arts and Urdang Academy.

Two Phoenix Youth Academy graduates have succeeded in being category finalists in the BBC Young Dancer competition.
