Miss Lauren was raised in Covington Indiana until her family moved to Missouri when she was eight years old. In her teen years, Lauren’s sister, Allie, joined a jazz class at A Time to Dance and Lauren decided to join as well, to be with her sister. Lauren ended up loving the experience, but when scheduling conflicts pulled her away from dance, she was unable to take another class for years.
Fast forward to 18 years old. Lauren decided to try ballet at A Time to Dance and fell completely in love. She eventually added jazz, and worked hard until she felt she was ready for a performance team. Three years later she is a member of the Diamond team. She dances in the styles of jazz, ballet, and lyrical with the team and was cast in a prominent role as one of Noah’s son’s wives in Noah’s Ark the Ballet for the past two summers.
After helping assist in the summer ballet she was excited and jumped at the chance to teach her own classes this year.
She wants everyone to know that it’s never too late to start doing something you love, and she is grateful that she now gets to help students to love it as well.
