Dance Scientist, Lecturer


Trinity Laban proved to be an extraordinary opportunity for me. Not only did I gain the knowledge necessary for my career, but I also built connections with professionals in the field and developed friendships that have proved invaluable to my personal and professional life. Above all, Trinity Laban inspires students to dream, learn, and create.
