Dancer, Choreographer


[Trinity] Laban provided me with a solid foundation from which to launch my career and I am extremely grateful to all the staff, staff who are active industry professionals and pioneers within their fields. I fondly remember my experiences under the directorship of the late Dr Marion North.
