Phoenix Youth Academy York

Phoenix Dance Theatre is extremely excited to announce that in September 2019 , in partnership with York Theatre Royal, we launched an additional satellite Youth Academy programme in York.

Phoenix Youth Academy York offers a high-quality dance training programme for talented young dancers, aged 13-16 years, interested in pursuing dance as a career. Students will meet for three hours per week to develop excellent contemporary technique.

Throughout the year, students will also have the opportunity to work with recognised choreographers as well as former and current Phoenix Dance Theatre company dancers. Dance pieces are created during intensive courses that take place in school holidays, which are then showcased at various dance platforms across the UK.

Entry into the academy is by audition only.

Auditions for our Leeds, York, North East, and Doncaster cohorts will be held in June and July. More details (including time and format of auditions) will be released soon.
