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 take part in dance and music activity.
For Your Students
We can provide a number of opportunities for your students, ranging from in-school workshops and performances to longer-term projects with our experienced team of workshop leaders.
We can work with you to design a bespoke project based around your pupils’ needs and interests, with a curriculum focus. Be it a one-off dance, music or combined workshop, or a longer term creative residency, we can work to meet your school’s budget and resources. We can also offer student-led performance opportunities with undergraduate musicians.
We also host taster and open days for students considering a Higher Education course in Music or Dance at our buildings in Greenwich and Deptford.
For students who are interested in taking part in music and dance out of school we also run the following extra-curricular activities:
