Laura Cross, born and raised in Northern NJ, immediately fell in love with dance at the age of 3. She was trained and later danced competitively with In The Spotlight Dance Studio in lyrical, ballet, jazz, hip hop and tap. Laura attended Villanova University School of Business and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. She spent four years with the University's student-run Dance Company. She was elected President after her sophomore year and held this position through her senior year. Laura joined DanceWorks Boston in its tenth season and is excited to be back for Season 12 as a second time choreographer. When not in the studio, Laura works as an Event Planner for KPMG in Boston, MA.
