Proudly in partnership with
A HUGE thank you to everyone who sent us video auditions to be a part of Phoenix Boys for our Dance World Cup Teams 2020! We received 94 videos and thoroughly enjoyed watching through them all and it was a really difficult decision.
We would just like to remind everyone of the ethos of Phoenix Boys. The company exists as a place for boys to come together and share their passion for dance in an all-male environment and isn’t about competition. We are seeing Dance World Cup as an extra opportunity to perform together.
CONGRATULATIONS to the following dancers!

WE WILL BE LIVE AUDITIONING FOR MORE DANCERS FOR THE LYRICAL AND CONTEMPORARY PIECES AT THE FIRST SHOW DANCE GROUP REHEARSAL. ANY ADDITIONAL FEES CAN BE PAID AFTERWARDS.
Over 20,000 competitors from 62 countries competing at their country qualifiers and at the World Finals each year.
This is the greatest all-genre dance competition in the world for children and young adults.
The competition runs from 26th June to 4th July 2020 but as our groups are all in the senior section, dancers won't be required to dance until 30th June onwards. DWC do not release en exact schedule for a few months yet so this means dancers need to be in Rome for between 30th June and 4th July.
This year the event is at Cinecitta World which has a theme park, water parks, theatres, cinemas and much more, so being there for that amount of time won't be too much of a struggle!
TIME OFF SCHOOL:
Participation will involve some time off school. There is an official DWC letter that can be sent to you which you can hand in to schools. Schools are usually pretty relaxed with DWC as it's a huge opportunity to represent England.
We have to be very honest, participation in the Dance World Cup can be prices and things do add up. However local communities, trusts, businesses are usually more than willing to support their local talent, especially when it’s boys dancing! We will email you a list of fundraising ideas once you have accepted your place.
Participation Fee: 80 euros (£68.00)
Membership Fee: 10 euros (£12.00)
Cost per group dance: 20 euros (£18.00)
Phoenix Boys Fee*: £100.00
* This is to cover a number of things such as rehearsal space, (we need a big space due to the number of participants), costumes, props, insurances etc. We are running a 'Just Giving' page and if we manage to raise the funds, we endeavour to refund a substantial amount of this fee. Please help us by sharing the link:
This amount is unfortunately due immediately as the participation fee and entry fees need to be paid to Dance World Cup by this weekend. The costume and rehearsal fees are also needed now as studio hires need to be paid for and costumes ordered.

NOTE: If you are already attending DWC with your dancing school, you will not need to pay the participation fee or membership as your teacher will have already sorted this with/for you, so please just transfer the other fees.
OTHER COSTS NOT DUE IMMEDIATELY:
* Team England Tracksuit (these are a compulsory requirement for all dancers representing any country- rules set by DWC:
* Rehearsals at £7.50 pp
TRAVEL AND ACCOMODATION:
Parents/families are to arrange their own travel and accommodation.
Parents, guardians, family and friends must purchase their own entry to the DWC via www.dwcworld.com
As you can imagine, getting this amount of boys together from all over the UK is going to be a challenge, so we ask that you try as hard as possible to be as accommodating as possible.
The large show group with everyone in will be the priority initially. We are looking at rehearsing on the 2nd Sunday of the month in Birmingham (March and April).
We are then looking at extra rehearsals during the Easter holidays for the Show Dance Group and for the other groups.
Please tell us of any impossibilities now so that we can offer the place to someone on the reserve list should you not be able to commit.
If you have any queries about anything, please ask via email:
We are anticipating a lot of questions so please help us by keeping things in the same place.
