Lauren has been high-kicking and shimmying her way through life since a young age when she trained in Ballet, Tap, Modern, and Jazz at the Academy of Movement dance studio in Nashua, NH. She realized her true passion for the culture, art, and technique of dance when she studied at various summer programs in high school: ProDanza Italia in Tuscany, Italy, University of the Arts Summer World of Dance in Philadelphia, PA, and the Bates Summer Dance Festival in Lewiston, ME. During her four years at Boston University where she earned a BS in Education (and loved it so much she went back to earn her EdM in 2010!), Lauren performed with the BU Dance Team at school sporting event, serving as Co-Captain her junior year, and with Vibes, an innovative all-female Hip Hop crew. Lauren’s post-college dance experience includes: two seasons (and a trip to the sidelines at Super Bowl XLIX) as a New England Patriots Cheerleader, three seasons with the Boston Cannons and one with the Boston Blazers professional lacrosse dance teams, training in Jazz and Hip Hop at Jeannette Neill Dance Studio, and six seasons (and counting!) with DanceWorks Boston. When not dancing, Lauren can be found teaching Physical Education, selling Real Estate in the Boston area, enjoying nights out with friends, and spending time with her (super ridiculously cute) 5-year-old daughter, Cora Lily.
