Faculty of Dance

The Laban Building is the world's largest purpose built contemporary dance centre and a leading conservatoire for contemporary dance artist training. Our range of activities, excellent facilities and world-class faculty are what make Trinity Laban's Faculty of Dance such a dynamic and inspiring environment in which to learn and work.

The Laban Building was designed by Herzog and de Meuron, the Pritzker Prize-winning (2001) Swiss architects who also designed the Tate Modern and the National Stadium in Beijing (2008 Olympic Games). Herzog and de Meuron collaborated with visual artist Michael Craig-Martin to create this iconic and bold building.


Our 13 purpose built dance studios have the latest sprung flooring. Large windows and the building's semi translucent cladding allow natural light to flood into the spacious studios during the day and traces of dance and movement to be visible through the walls. By night, the building becomes a coloured beacon with light and movement spilling out illuminating the surrounding area. Studio space is also available at our old site at Laurie Grove.

The Laban Building has been designed to ensure full access for people with a wide range of disabilities, from wheelchair users to those with sensory and learning difficulties. You can find out more about our disability policies here.
