First Student Company
Transitions is the original conservatoire dance company, created to help emerging artists bridge formal training and their entry to the professional world. The Company is based at the lottery-funded Laban Building at Deptford Creekside, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the architects behind Tate Modern.
Transitions Dance Company was founded in 1982 by Bonnie Bird (1914-1995) who was Artistic Director until her death. Bonnie Bird was one of the original members of the Martha Graham Dance Company and became the first official teacher of the Graham technique - her pupils included Merce Cunningham. The Bonnie Bird Choreography Fund was established in 1985 to support and promote innovative choreographers in Britain, Europe and America.
