Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is the UK’s only conservatoire of music and contemporary dance.
Leaders in music and contemporary dance education, we also provide exciting opportunities for the public to encounter dance and music, and access arts health programmes. The unequalled expertise and experience of our staff and our world class facilities are housed in landmark buildings.
In 2005, Trinity College of Music and Laban, leading centres of music and contemporary dance, came together to form Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the UK’s first ever conservatoire of music and dance. Our innovative course provision, exciting performances and groundbreaking education, community and social inclusion work make Trinity Laban a leader in the advancement of creative artistic practice. Our unique conjunction has created exciting opportunities for collaboration between instrumentalists, singers, composers, dancers and choreographers.
From one-off taster workshops to weekly classes, courses, creative arts projects and music/dance collaborations, our public programmes attract participants of all ages, whatever their background or ability.
Activities include special programmes for participants with disabilities, older people, children and families as well as professional development and training opportunities for music and dance practitioners.
