Phoenix Dance Theatre

Choreographers and Composers Lab

Phoenix Dance Theatre is a middle scale repertory company and the UK’s longest standing contemporary dance company outside of London. Since the Company’s small beginnings in 1981, it has grown to be a key Northern forerunner in contemporary dance and for three and a half decades has performed across the globe educating and inspiring audiences through dance.

Our support goes to a structured programme of development for eight artists, four choreographers and four composers, who will work together to share practice and develop material together to be presented to an industry audience. The programme will seek to support early career dance makers that are currently under-represented, particularly targeting BAME and female artists.

The project is also supported by Leeds Dance Partnership.
