Phoenix Youth Academy Oldham - Auditions

In September 2023 we will launch our newest satellite academy, Phoenix Youth Academy Oldham, in partnership with Oldham Sixth Form College. The Youth Academy programme provides high quality pre-vocational dance training for talented young dancers aged 13 – 18 interested in pursuing a career in dance. Students access a 90-minute lesson each week to develop excellent contemporary technique.

Throughout the year, students work with current and former Phoenix Dance Theatre dancers and internationally acclaimed choreographers. Dance pieces are created during intensive courses that take place during school holidays which are then showcased at various dance platforms across the UK.

Phoenix Youth Academy was founded in Leeds in 2009. Since then, many of our graduates have gone on to successfully audition for numerous leading conservatoires including:

Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, London Contemporary Dance School, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, The Ailey School, Institute of the Arts Barcelona, Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, Bird College, Laine Theatre Arts and Urdang Academy.

Two Phoenix Youth Academy graduates have succeeded in being category finalists in the BBC Young Dancer competition.

Audition: 18 June
