Dance Artist, Teacher
Trinity Laban offered me the most spectacular of opportunities which have continued to support artistic and academic movement enquiry. The structure of all programmes enables the individual to be challenged, motivated, nurtured and guided; providing solid grounding from transition of student to professional. For me however, it is this continued ‘holding’ and support that Trinity Laban provides, it’s most unique asset. Graduates are always supported and welcomed, preventing artistic isolation whilst nurturing collaborative possibilities.Lucy Blazheva
