Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance

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 of Music and Laban, two leading centres of music and dance with an established reputation and far-reaching history.

Building on the conservatoire’s distinctive heritage and its extensive experience in providing innovative education and training in the performing arts, Trinity Laban embraces the new, the experimental and the unexpected.

Thanks to Trinity Laban’s established international reputation, excellent technical training and innovative approach to teaching, more than 1,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students choose to train here every year. This diverse student body thrives by making the most of numerous training, performance and cross faculty collaboration opportunities available to them, across two amazing sites in the world famous location of Greenwich in London.

International Students

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.

This has been essential for entering a professional environment. I have had the opportunity to work with great artists that have nurtured and inspired me to continue my journey in the profession. I have been given the space to start research into my own practice while working alongside other dance artists."
