We are pleased to announce that the exceptional dance creative prowess of Cass Mortimer Eipper will be joining the Transit Dance Community over the next 4 weeks of March working on a plethora of excited new projects across our platforms.
Today Transit Dance announced their first performance season of 2019. Featuring two brand new shows -Shake by Transit Dance Performing Arts & Doth by Transit Dance Contemporary, this season promises to deliver BIG!
Transit Dance was so grateful to travel down to Latrobe Performing Arts Centre in January to create a new contemporary dance work on 22 regional dancers titled "Hometown". This was an initiative created by Jayden Hicks and Kathleen Roberts, to travel the ethos and creative process of Transit Dance Faculty down to Traralgon to work with members of the local community.
Introducing our full time class of 2019! Today the 150+ strong full time students from our Preprofessional courses, Graduate programs, Teachers course and High School Academy gathered for our annual school photo. What a community of amazing, passionate and caring human beings.
“There were tears of sadness and of joy, laughter and hugs, so many, and deservingly so. This day gave us all a true feeling that we are here to learn, we are here to evolve and most of all, we are here to become the greatest versions of ourselves possible, with an unbelievable amount of love and support surrounding us “ Paul Malek
