Megan Saunders

Dance Artist, Choreographer, Teacher

Dance

I received a challenging and varied training at Trinity Laban that equipped me with an openness and versatility necessary for freelance life. Much of my work since graduating occurred via connections made during my training with peers and teachers. I also established a connection with the learning and participation team which has provided me with many opportunities and helped me to continue learning through attending CPD.
