Founded in 1985, the Dancer Transition Resource Centre is a national, charitable organization dedicated to helping dancers make necessary transitions into, within, and from professional performing careers. We also operate as a resource centre for the dance community and general public and support activities that improve the socioeconomic conditions of artists across the country.
As a world leader in dancer transition, we are active participants in international conferences and research initiatives and help drive change within the dance community.
We recognize that dance is one of the most challenging professions, physically, emotionally and financially, and that transitions are inevitable. Our goal is to ensure that dancers have the tools they need to reach their potential throughout their dance career and after retirement from dance performance. Each year the Dancer Transition Resource Centre helps hundreds of dancers explore and develop their unique talents and transferrable skills.
