The Rogues Program

Celebrating alternate pathways into independent dance

Just take a look in any local gymnasium or hip-hop class and there is bound to be a phenomenal artist lurking somewhere, bursting with potential and hunger…now just go up to them and see if they are game! That’s how I started…

STRUT Director - Paul Selwyn Norton


An initiative to create opportunities for artists who have taken a more idiosyncratic or non-institutionalised pathway into dance. STRUT’s desire is to draw from a culturally and artistically diverse pool of dancers who, in turn, help build a more robust cohort of STRUT members and Australian artists.

Rogue scholarship recipients are given free access to all of STRUT’s Master Workshop and Collaborations programs. To this date, STRUT has successfully supported 6 Rogues through parts of the 2014-18 program. Any individual or organisation may nominate a Rogue for consideration. If you have someone in mind, contact

We congratulate Callum Mooney who has been nominated as a 2019 Rogue.
