Seeing how other people and cultures think about movement and dance has helped me broaden my horizons…

My favourite performing experience was an historical project in the Laban Theatre, when I was part of a restaging of Shobana Jeyasingh’s Bruise Blood. I was lucky to perform it four times, it was such a great experience to perform it a number of times to different audiences.

Colab was a great opportunity to take something I was interested in and put it into an open platform for collaboration. There are so many things that I took from Colab, I’m not sure if I could write them all: working together, gaining knowledge about how to build a piece, learning from other disciplines, performing something that we had created together…  The Colab sharing is a really exciting time. I remember it being the first time I saw most of my classmates outside of a technique setting, and I remember being so inspired by the whole week.

Seeing how other people and cultures think about movement and dance has helped me broaden my horizons in a really quick way. Having so many different choreographic voices pushed me into places that would have been a harder to find without being around such a diverse cohort, and allowed me to really get ‘out of the box’. It’s something I feel has really enriched me not just as a dancer but as a person.

There is always something going on in London. If you want to do something, you can probably find it! I have been able to watch so many different performances, to be able to perform in a variety of unique spaces and to go to a really wide variety of classes. The dance scene here is a very exciting place.

There is a great variety of treatments at Laban Health. I have been able to try so many different health practices and to integrate them into my work in class in a very real way. The practitioners there know about dance and so can give tailored and specific advice and feedback. There are also very friendly people working there, I always enjoy saying hello to them!

One of the things I felt I was going to miss out on by coming to a conservatoire was the student experience in halls. But with the McMillan student village I was able to get that experience. It was everything I had hoped it to be. I really enjoyed being in the hive of activity and I found it was a great way to get to know the people that I was studying with, and especially to meet and live with musicians. It’s also really close to the Laban Building which was really helpful. I heard someone in the year above me managed to literally roll from his bed to his class!
