Azizi Cole

Resident Company Musician

Born and raised in Handsworth, Birmingham Azizi has been involved in the arts from a very young age. Starting his dance training with Gail Parmel at ACE Youth with his brothers he was nurtured through his formative years developing key skills and life lessons that he has been able to carry with him into his professional career. Having moved away from dance later in his life, Azizi began to explore his creativity through the art of music. After his studies Azizi spent several years touring music venues and festivals in the UK. In 2015 he moved up to Leeds to become an accompanist at both Phoenix Dance Theatre and Northern School of Contemporary Dance where he has been developing skills merging both his musical and dance practices.
