Lauren grew up in Port Moody, BC and began dancing at age 3 at the Caulfield School of Dance under the direction of Cori Caulfield. She trained in multiple disciplines, including Ballet, Jazz, Modern/Contemporary and Hip Hop, and quickly developed an interest as a teenager in choreography and teaching. Lauren is now an established teacher and choreographer in the Greater Vancouver area. She has been teaching since 2007 in a variety of different styles including AcroDance, Jazz/Lyrical, Hip Hop/Jazz Funk, and Contemporary. She is a certified AcroDance instructor with Acrobatic Arts as well as an AcroDance Adjudicator certified with the Acro Dance Teachers Association. She also holds certifications with Alixa Flexibility, Sugar Foot Therapy and is a proud member of YPAD (Youth Protection Advocates in Dance).

 

Lauren is an alumni of Kill the Lights Co., a hip hop dance training company based out of Harbour Dance Centre, and has danced in various shows around the Vancouver area. She has also danced for companies like Sonic Nation Radio and Kia, and for artists such as Brian McKnight, Michael Buble, Charlotte Fischer, Lowkita, Jackie Valentine, and Laurell.

 

Lauren believes that a teacher should never stop being a student. She continues to train when she can in Vancouver and Los Angeles and frequent workshops, conferences, and certifications to further her education. Lauren has a passion for teaching and thrives on watching her students grow. She hopes that she can pass along her love of this art to inspire others to be not only the best dancer, but also the best person they can be.
