Phoenix Youth Academy York


We are extremely excited to announce that in September 2019, we’ll be partnering with Phoenix Dance Theatre to launch a new Youth Academy programme in York.

Youth Academy York offers a high quality dance training programme for talented young dancers, aged 14-18 years, interested in pursuing dance as a career. Students will meet once per week, on Wednesday evenings for an extended session, 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. This year, auditions will be taking place on Friday 28th June 2019 at York Theatre Royal.

To apply for an audition, please complete the application form. Please note that the deadline for all applications is Friday 21st June.

For further information, please contact Antonio Borriello on 0113 236 8130 or
