Originally from White Oak, Texas, Lauren moved to Tyler to pursue higher education at UT Tyler where she earned her Bachelor’s in Business Management and also desires to teach dance through many platforms. Lauren has spent many years dedicated to dance through studio, competition, and professional collegiate teams. A fun fact about Lauren is that she also performed several years of baton twirling and led her high school band as drum major. As a collegiate dancer, Lauren spent 3 years on the UT Tyler Spirit Squad. Two of those years she was named their co-head and head captain on the leadership team. Lauren has taught numerous styles of dance for 5 years to all age groups. Her passion for dance is one of her greatest joys and she believes that teaching makes it all the better. Lauren is a yearlong residency dance instructor and helps with other productions like musical theatre! She is very excited to also work in the office developing dance programs and working on administrative tasks. She hopes to build a larger involvement for dance teams in northeast Texas while expanding the programs we currently have.
