We’re pleased to announce that applications are open for our Russell Page Graduate Program. Initiated in 2015, the program has seen over twenty young artists commence their first professional engagement with Bangarra. Within the current ensemble of dancers, 11 of the 16 dancers have entered the company as Russell Page Graduates.

The program provides opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance graduates or early career artists to develop as professional dancers through training and mentoring, as well as by being an active member of the dancer ensemble for performances and touring seasons.

Applicants must be aged between 18-23 years-old, be of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background, and demonstrate evidence of advanced dance skills and training. Applications close Monday 18 October at 5pm.

For more information, please visit our Fellowships & Traineeships page.

Thank you to the Sherry-Hogan Foundation, The Ross Trust and our individual donors for their generous support of the Russell Page Graduate Program.
