Tristan first discovered dance through jazz and musical theatre before beginning his formal training at the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School (VCASS) in Melbourne. While at VCASS, Tristan benefited immeasurably from tutors such as Steven McTaggart, Kirsty Martin and Timothy Harbour. Upon graduating in 2013 Tristan decided to pursue contemporary dance by furthering his training at the New Zealand School of Dance where he graduated in 2016. Throughout his time at the school Tristan has been fortunate to work with renowned choreographers and teachers such as Stephanie Lake, Anouk van Dijk, Leigh Warren, Craig Bary, James Vu Anh Pham and Kimball Wong. Tristan is ecstatic to be joining Tasdance as a trainee for the 2015 Affinity season.
