Student Profile(s)

Verity Quade, Vocalist

1196.png Trinity Laban was one of the most positive experiences of my life both socially and vocationally. If I had my time again, I still wouldn’t choose to go anywhere else. The teachers are the leading exponents in their fields, which is invaluable. To be taught by people that still actively do what they are teaching is inspirational.

1202.png Being a student at Trinity Laban taught me how to learn. From teachers, from fellow dancers, from all the different situations, challenges and experiences that were presented to me. I experienced hard work, compassion, creatice processes, being on stage. It created a network of amazing dance artists. I learned how to analyse movement, articulate it both physically and theoretically. I worked with a lot of established, up and coming as well as emerging choreographers. To this day, the clarity in my own body and in space comes from the Laban Movement Analysis. Trinity Laban gave me the freedom to figure out who I was and who I wanted to become as a performer and it taught me that being me is good. I still strive to be myself honestly, on stage, to this day.


Nicola Conibere

1203.png The explorations I began through the MA programme enabled me to discover a way of working that integrates my theoretical and practical interests in performance, and remains the foundation for the work I make today. This was the result of study which not only nurtured tireless interrogation of both theoretical discourse on performance and the practical issues of making it, but, importantly, suggested that each area is equally capable of enlightening the other.


Luca Silvestrini

1204.png I will always look back at my time at [Trinity] Laban as one of the most significant turning points of my life. The teachers, choreographers and fellow students I came into contact with have all played a considerable role in the development of my passion for dance and choreography into a successful career.


Rosalie Wahlfrid

1205.png Trinity Laban has offered me three very different years of training and guidance. I have been provided with a base of great knowledge and understanding of my body and mind, my own responsibility as a student and investigation into what my interests are, both as performer and dance maker. This has been essential for entering a professional environment. I have had the opportunity to work with great artists that have nurtured and inspired me to continue my journey in the profession. I have experienced freedom and been given the space to start research of my own practice whilst working alongside other dance artists.
