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 WA artists.

To this date, STRUT has successfully supported 15 Rogues through parts of the 2014-17 program.

Any individual or organisation may nominate a Rogue for consideration. Contact

Xin Ong will be the next Rogue for the coming year. She begins with the Hofesh Shechter worksjops. From April 10, follow her .journey on the Blog Page.
