Phoenix is a brand new performing arts college and provides a 2 year course in the performing arts culminating in A-Level exams and a foundation course in Musical Theatre which is accepted by Arts Ed London as an entry requirement
Phoenix is the only college of its kind in Ireland offering students full time professional training in performing Arts while still achieving a second level education and qualification which allows access to many colleges and universities.
Our aim is to prepare students for a career in the performing arts and entry into the leading performing arts colleges worldwide."
"A brand New College for 2017 founded by Therese Rooney and Patrick Cooney. Following Therese's own children leaving school after junior cert to follow their dream of a career in Musical Theatre, they decided Ireland needs to provide a system which allows our kids to be on the same level as their english counterparts. Performers wanting to pursue a career in the performing arts are up against it in Ireland and we are going to bridge the gap between the 2 systems. Phoenix will provide access for their students to full time professional training, preparation for auditions to the worlds leading dance/performance colleges while allowing them to get A Levels and therefore have an education. Phoenix Dance studio will run a diverse number of courses and try to cover every discipline of the performing arts to give students a well rounded training.
At Phoenix Dance Studio we will provide a top of the range training facility and home to all the performing arts.
We are inclusive and we will have a performing company from Jan 2018 available for corporate and social events. "
