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.

Applications are open for 2022 entry

Please submit an application via UCAS Conservatoires for one of the following programmes

BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance

Recorded Auditions

The videos below will give you an idea of what may be required. There will be an additional video and information about how to submit your recordings will follow shortly.

Classical Ballet

You will see three ballet exercises demonstrated both from a front-facing and a back-facing perspective. Please film yourself executing these exercises in a front-facing position only (the back-facing demonstration is there to help you learn the exercises).

Contemporary Dance Technique

You will see alternative orientations for the three contemporary technique exercises. Please film yourself in both front-facing and side-facing positions for the first two exercises and in a front-facing position only for the third exercise.

For both the ballet and contemporary exercises accompanying music of a similar tempo to that played in the video may be used or the exercises may be filmed in silence.

Creative Work

The creative task is to devise and film your performance of a 1-minute solo illustrating your individual response to the tasks explored in the video. The solo should be performed in silence.
