Every year, applicants tell us that they enjoy auditioning at Trinity Laban.

Our audition procedure is designed to enable us to find out about you - not just how good a dancer and performer you are, but what sort of a person you are, and to assess whether you have the potential to be the sort of dancer who will benefit from the approach that we have. We aim to provide a positive and friendly atmosphere, and we want you to enjoy yourself.

Once your application is processed, you will be invited to audition at Trinity Laban. We hold auditions at intervals throughout the year in the UK and abroad.

Please note that application does not guarantee a place at preliminary audition and auditions are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Early application is recommended.

We expect MA Dance Performance (Transitions Dance Company) candidates to attend an audition at Trinity Laban where possible. We will, in exceptional circumstances, accept a recorded audition. You should email admissions@trinitylaban.ac.uk to request this before submitting a recording, as it will need to be discussed with the Programme Team. However, we strongly encourage you to attend the live audition if at all possible.

If you do submit a recording, the content should be as follows:

1. 10 minutes of Contemporary Technique Class material (new material not previously learned)

Ideally footage of you performing the material during the class in which you learnt it. Please identify yourself so it’s clear which dancer you are. If you are unable to record the class itself, footage of you performing the material outside of a class setting is also acceptable, but the material should not be overly rehearsed. Footage of you being taught/learning the material is not necessary.

2. 10 minutes of performance

3. 2 x 3-minute improvisations (on 2 very contrasting themes)

The recordings can be submitted via Embark.
