We are a group of young artists, about to graduate from Transit Dance (Melbourne). We have come to Melbourne from all over Australia and New Zealand, in pursuit of our passion for contemporary dance. During our time at Transit Dance we have been able to grow as people and as artists. As we near our graduation in December, we are excited to continue to develop ourselves and to become active members of the arts industry.
The graduating class of Transit Dance Contemporary, Diploma of Dance:
Alycia Siomos, Anna Griffiths, Cassie Peele, Christie King, Claudia Debenham, Courtney Pearce, Ellen Peebles, Ellie Murtagh, Emily Eather, Gemma Sattler, Giselle Graham, Hannah Billingham, Hannah Campbell, Holly Pearce, Jacqui Maida, Jessica McCracken-Bell, Juliet Saito, Kirrah Thompson, Kim Te, Kristen Cafari, Lauren Stanley, Meg Attwell, Meg Bassett, Teagan Shaw, Tenae Smith, Vicki Mosheim & Yvonne Huang
Over the past year we have been planning an industry event, where we hope to bring together artists from interstate to be able to make connections and share in their experience of being a contemporary dance artist. It is our goal to be able to fly a selection of interstate company directors to our event, as well as inviting Melbourne and interstate independent artists.
We have held several fundraising events, during which we have been able to raise $2000. We are asking for a further $1000 through this campaign to get us closer to our goal, as we continue to hold fundraising events over the next couple months. This funding will cover some of the flights, as well as event costs.
This has become a very special endeavour for our group, and we greatly appreciate the support of all those who have contributed to our project.
We are passionate about our industry, and eager to contribute to our community. It is our hope that through our event we provide an opportunity for everyone to come together.
