My time at Trinity Laban was a wonderful, enriching and life changing experience. The vibrant community of international artists, the expertise and the generous support of my teachers and the opportunities to engage with practising artists as well as having the space, time and resources to research my artistic interests have allowed me to ground my practice and prepared me to make my way as an independent dance artist.
