Transitions Dance Company

Established in 1983, Transitions Dance Company was the first graduate training company of its kind to be established in the United Kingdom. It is specifically designed to bridge the gap between study and elite performance practice, annually welcoming international choreographers, producing high quality work and advocating active collaboration. Transitions Dance Company tours extensively, both nationally and internationally.

Transitions Dance Company works with three world leading choreographers each year who remain resident with the company while it develops its annual tour programme. In recent years these choreographers have included:

  • Ederson Rodrigues Xavier
  • Dog Kennel Hill Project – research collective fronted by Dance Artists Ben Ash, Henrietta Hale and Rachel Lopez de la Nieta
  • Theo Clinkard
  • Bawren Tavaziva 
  • Zoi Dimitriou 
  • Miguel Pereira
  • Lauri Stallings
  • Tom Dale
  • Augusto Corrieri

Transitions alumni work as leading dance artists, choreographers and curators; many graduates have gone on to perform for major dance companies including Adventures in Motion Pictures, New Adventures, Akram Khan Company, Alias Campagnie, Siobhan Davies Dance Company, DV8, Rambert Dance Company, Random Dance Company, The Cholmondeleys and The Featherstonehaughs, Candoco, Tilted Productions, Michael Clark, Fabulous Beast, Ballet Boyz, Punchdrunk, Sarah Michelson, Rosemary Lee, Martin Nachbar and Arthur Pita.
