Gry Galta Van Merkensteijn

Dance Artist, Lecturer


My year at Trinity Laban was fantastic because of the rigorous academic environment who helped me grow as a professional, and because of friendly and supportive colleagues and friends. The MSc enabled me to contribute to the field of dance science and to apply dance science in practice as a dance teacher and lecturer.
