Always having the desire to be a well-rounded and focused performer, Lauren has been driven by the idea that all obstacles present opportunities. Now living in Los Angeles and represented by Go 2 Talent Agency, Lauren has performed on stages reaching audiences of all kinds. A former member of the University of Virginia NCAA Dance Team, Lauren also performed with the Virginia Dance Company. Throughout her career, she has performed variations from Le Corsaire, taken part in Disneyland’s Holiday Spectacular, worked as a print model for nationally recognized dance apparel companies and danced at The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas for New Year’s Eve (featuring Bruno Mars) for two years running.

However, she’s always found her way back to Los Angeles. She recently performed in Colombian artist Karol G’s hit music video “Tusa” featuring Nicki Minaj, which is now nominated for “Best Video” at the 2020 Heat Latin Music Awards. Lauren has also been working with choreographer Christian Vincent as part of a skeleton crew for an upcoming Netflix series “Madame C.J. Walker” starring Octavia Spencer. As a dancer and certified yoga instructor, Lauren is especially proud to have been a part of the Debbie Reynolds Scholarship Program, and to have trained with the American Ballet Theatre. Lauren has worked with Luther Brown, Lindsey & Craig, Sienna Lyons, Anthony Thomas, Gustavo Vargas, Shawnette Heard, Rhapsody James, Marguerite Derricks, Jackie Sleight, and Scotty Nguyen. As her career continues to grow, so does her dreams. And she hopes to encourage young dancers everywhere to do the same!
