I have been studying dance for over 40 years. My training has been extensive in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, and Contemporary. Sprinkled in with some knowledge of ballroom and acrobatics. My greatest love is mainly with Ballet & Tap. I have taught competition dancers as well as non-competition dancers since the age of 16. Emphasis, for me, is to instill highly technical and clean performers, who show passion in their performance. I have won countless Choreography Awards, and Top Teacher Awards in Regional and National Competitions. Many of the dancers I have trained moved on to become great teachers themselves, studio owners, professional stage performers (such a Disney Princess’), and even celebrities in Hollywood. Coming from a highly “Showbiz” family, Laura grew up with “the dance gene”.
I have been a judge at many dance competitions, which allowed me to travel all over the United States of America. I taught not only at my own dance studios, but at High Schools, Grammar Schools, Talent Shows, and Workshops. My knowledge extends into: costume making and design, recital show production, lighting, staging, and private coaching. I love teaching, and hope to share my vast knowledge with all students who have the love of dance at IDance.
