New Youth Academy North East

22 Oct 2015

In partnership with Gateway Studios, Phoenix Dance Theatre is to launch a new Youth Academy North East a brand new high-quality training programme for talented young dancers aged 14 to 18 from across the North East, based on the hugely successful Phoenix Youth Academy in Leeds.

Phoenix Youth Academy in Leeds has been running since 2009 and 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.

Phoenix Academy North East students will meet twice a week, developing their contemporary dance technique through working with recognised choreographers and Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Company dancers. Academy members will also participate in intensive courses during the school holidays, with regular performance opportunities at platforms across the UK.

Acceptance into the Academy is by audition only and spaces are limited. Auditions will take place in Gateshead on 5 December 2015. For further information, and to book a place at the audition, contact Peter Huggins at
