Fergus was born in Scotland in 1989. There, he trained in contemporary dance from 2009 before auditioning for the Trinity Laban undergraduate programme.
Gaining a place, Fergus trained at the Faculty of Dance for three years and graduated in 2015. After auditioning for Transitions he was offered a place to undertake studies at Masters level. During his time in dance Fergus has worked with various choreographers and artists in research, staged performance and site-specific works in Scotland and around London, and has been fortunate enough to have the support of so many people along the way.
