Leeds West Academy


Workshop with Phoenix Dance

Securing success through dance

On Friday 13th April, students from Year 7-10 took part in a workshop with Phoenix Dance at Leeds West Academy.

Working with Leeds Rhinos, the girls worked hard learning complex routines led by choreographer, Antonio, as part of their Dance Leadership Qualification for their Arts Award.

Ms Johnston said: “It was brilliant to welcome Leeds Rhinos and Phoenix Dance into the Academy to work with our girls. The dancers were really engaged and performed really well together.”   

Alisha Schofield from Leeds Rhinos said: “The workshop with Phoenix was absolutely fantastic. Myself and the girls had a brilliant experience and it will be really beneficial for their Arts Award qualification. Antonio was amazing and it was so lovely to see the girls step outside of their comfort zone by trying something new.”
