Phoenix Academy North East

Phoenix Dance Theatre, in partnership with Gateway Studios, is delighted to have launched a new high-quality training programme following the great success of our Phoenix Youth Academy in Leeds. This programme offers young talented dancers aged 14-18 the chance to develop strong contemporary dance techniques.

Launched in 2015, the Phoenix North East Academy offers classes twice a week to work with recognised choreographers and Phoenix Dance Theatre’s company dancers. The academy dancers also participate in our intensive courses during school holidays, giving them regular opportunities to perform at different platforms across the UK.

Phoenix Dance Theatre is one of the UKs leading contemporary dance companies outside of London. For over three decades we have performed, educated and inspired people in the UK and abroad. Our Phoenix Youth Academy in Leeds came into being in 2009. Since then many of its graduates have gone on to successfully auditions 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.


Auditions for Phoenix Academy NE will be taking place on Sunday 7th July 2019. 

To apply for the audition, please complete the online Application Form by no later than Monday 1st July. After your application form has been submitted, a member of the Access & Education Team will be in touch with a schedule for the audition day.
