Why Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance?
Trinity Laban, also known as London’s Creative Conservatoire, is the UK’s first conservatoire of music and contemporary dance. The institution was formed in 2005 by the coming together of Trinity College
Trinity Laban’s staff and students come from more than 60 countries, bringing diverse experiences and expertise to the conservatoire’s community. Trinity Laban empowers its students to explore the ever evolving worlds of music, dance and musical theatre. Alongside their training, students learn ‘real-world’ skills that they will need to become the artistic leaders of the future. For two weeks in February each year, Trinity Laban’s own unique festival CoLab provides students with a place to take risks, be creative and experiment. Guided by expert mentors, more than 900 students from the Faculties of Dance and Music come together to create, develop and rehearse projects, building relationships across genres, disciplines and cultures. Trinity Laban is a diverse and welcoming community, where students quickly feel at home. All students can access support services, including Financial, International, English Language, Disability, Learning & Academic Support, as well as counselling and an on-site treatment clinic.
