Phoenix Youth Academy Leeds


Our Phoenix Youth Academy offers high-quality pre-vocational training programmes for young, aspiring dancers aged 13-19 years who are interested in pursuing dance as a career. The students meet twice a week to work with recognized choreographers and Phoenix Dance Theatre company dancers supporting them to develop strong contemporary dance techniques.

Many of our 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, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp, Bird College, Laine Theatre Arts and Urdang.

Two Phoenix Youth Academy graduates have gone on to be category finalists in the BBC Young Dancer competition.
