Phoenix Youth Academy North East

Phoenix Dance Theatre, in partnership with Gateway Studios, is delighted to have launched a new high-quality training programme following the 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, Phoenix Youth Academy North East offers classes twice a week 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 the UKs leading contemporary dance company 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 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.
