Lauren has been dancing since she was four years old when her mom decided to sign her up for dance classes; and has never looked back. She grew up dancing at Dance Progressions in Worcester, MA where she was trained and competed in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, and lyrical. Lauren has choreographed for the studio's competition team and has even won a choreography award. After graduating high school, she attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst  where she was a member of the UMass Dance Team and a captain of the team since her sophomore year. She helped the team reach the rank of 4th in the nation for Division IA dance teams at the annual collegiate competition in Daytona, Florida and promoted the team's recognition on campus. Lauren joined the company in the Fall of 2015 and choreographed for DanceWorks for the first time in the Spring of 2016. Lauren is looking forward to the opportunity to choreograph with DanceWorks Boston for another season!
