The purpose of the fellowship:

Transit Dance believes strongly in the development and evolution of dance on a global scale. We believe in creating not only great dancers, but great leaders, artists and contributors to the world of dance.

The aim of the Transit Fellowship is to ignite inspiration within young male dance artists to be proactive in their own future and participate in their own future pathway. It offers financial support, well rounded career guidance coupled with one of the highest level of technical and artistic training in the world at Transit Dance. It’s aim is to produce the male leaders of tomorrow and the future of male dance globally.

“I meet many young dancers, males especially who do not have the same support and guidance I received on my pathway. So with the Transit Fellowship, we can help eradicate this thought process, educate the masses and give much needed support to the next wave of male dance artists”
