Trinity Laban Summer School

The Trinity Laban Dance Summer School is an annual course that has been running for many years, and provides a fantastic opportunity for people aged 16+ years from all over the world to experience intensive dance training at the state-of-the-art Laban Building at Creekside.

This year, the course takes place from 18 to 29 July 2016 and will offer a programme of dance techniques and complementary movement practices. Classes are offered at different ability levels from complete beginners to professional standard so that participants can choose a programme that suits their level of experience. Members of Trinity Laban's Faculty of Dance and others from wider afield in the dance profession are selected to form an excellent team of teachers. It's a great opportunity to make new friends, to dance every day, and to get a flavour of the training offered at Trinity Laban.
