History of Transitions Dance Company
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.
Alumni of Transitions Dance Company include Sir Matthew Bourne (New Adventures), Luca Silvestrini (Luca Silvestrini’s Protein), Oona Doherty, Emma Gladstone and Charlotte Pook (National Dance Company Wales).
