Being a student at Trinity Laban taught me how to learn. From teachers, from fellow dancers, from all the different situations, challenges and experiences that were presented to me. I experienced hard work, compassion, creative processes, being on stage. It created a network of amazing dance artists. I learned how to analyse movement, articulate it both physically and theoretically. I worked with a lot of established, up and coming as well as emerging choreographers. To this day, the clarity in my own body and in space comes from the Laban Movement Analysis. Trinity Laban gave me the freedom to figure out who I was and who I wanted to become as a performer and it taught me that being me is good. I still strive to be myself honestly, on stage, to this day.Dylan Crossman
