Our People & Vision

Transit Dance aims to provide the highest levels of service to our community and strives to place itself at the forefront of dance education.

Transit Dance was founded in 2015 by Paul and Karen Malek who saw a need for a high quality and career focussed full time dance training institution within the dance education sector. Starting with a core focus of Contemporary dance they created a practical, holistic and nurturing educational setting that has quickly grown to become a leader in the field.

Having since expanded to include the Performing Arts and a slew of unique Youth Programs, Transit Dance now services in excess of 150 full time students each year across all courses.
