Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance - London’s creative conservatoire

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance was formed in 2005 as a merger of two older institutions – Trinity College of Music and Laban. Today, the conservatoire has over 1,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students across three sites in south east London

The conservatoire’s Faculty of Music is based at King Charles Court at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, while the Faculty of Dance is housed in the Laban Building in Deptford – one of Europe’s biggest and best equipped facilities for contemporary dance. In nearby New Cross, the studios at Laurie Grove form the main base for musical theatre students. Blackheath Halls is the conservatoire’s largest concert venue.

Trinity Laban also has an active Research Department which supports a wide variety of activity exploring performance science, performance pedagogy and creative practice. 

The Trust has supported bursaries at Trinity College of Music and subsequently at Trinity Laban for over 25 years. Trinity Laban was awarded Arts Scholarship grants of £517,636 in 2013 and £426,000 in 2016. 

Each of the Arts Scholarships have supported, on average: 
12 junior music students; 
20 junior dance students; 
10 undergraduate musical theatre students; 
8 postgraduate music students and 
12 postgraduate dance students. 

Junior players are encouraged on their musical journey in ensemble and creative work.

Music students gain both technical mastery and the ability to interpret each piece afresh.

Musical theatre students are challenged to develop their own creative identity while acquiring the diverse skills required as professional performers.

Postgraduate dance students work across a range of disciplines: performance, choreography, creative practice, dance science and community dance.
