London Dance School Gets Funding For New Facilities

05th Feb 2013 ( updated 05th Feb 2013 ) - By in Student News


A Dance and Music School based in London is creating a new Performance Laboratory after receiving over £270K from Arts Council England.

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is planning to build this new facility – and revamp their existing dance theatre and studio – using the money from ACE along with funding from an anonymous benefactor and other foundations. The new Performance Lab will create a space for student dance projects and mentoring.

The School’s bid for funding is part of their plans to enhance the dance facilities in South East London – a project they’re collaborating on with Greenwich Dance.

Anthony Browne, Principal Professor of Trinity Laban, expressed his excitement at the news. “One of the main aims of our partnerships with Greenwich Dance, which is also supported by Arts Council funding, is to enable our two organisations to establish South East London as a dance hub, with facilities that will attract dance artists from around the world to share and collaborate on innovative ideas and choreographies,” he said.

But hang on a minute – how does all this actually affect you? Well if you’re considering a career in dance – or music, for that matter – you may not have considered specialist Schools like Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. With their often-excellent facilities, specialist staff and strong alumni networks, though, these schools are often a great way of breaking in to a career in the Arts.
