Heidi Yu

Dance Scientist, Lecturer


Studying my MSc in Trinity Laban was an incredible journey. Learning from elite researchers and practitioners in the field, utilising cutting edge equipment for research and practice, attending conferences and seminars that help building the very first step of my career… I could not ask for a better experience.
