Laura is passionate about making her students feel comfortable. She loves teaching and provides a comfortable and supportive atmosphere in which her students can grow. She enjoys the thrill and challenge of competition as well as the simplicity and elegance of a First Dance. She is excited to see people expand their confidence on and off the dance floor! She currently competes professionally in Smooth with her partner Rob.
Laura has had an eclectic career in the arts and beyond. She majored in Vocal Performance at The University of Connecticut and has a Master of Music in Musical Theater from The Boston Conservatory. While living in New York City after graduate school, she studied acting at T. Schreiber Studios and improv at Peoples Improv Theater. After having been part of a local ballet company in High School, she continued studying ballet at Steps and Broadway Dance. The “Beyond” part of her career was really fun side jobs in New York at a major fashion house, an A List Directors Production Office and time spent on tv and film sets as an extra.
Laura is the proud mom of an adorable long-haired kitty named Henry. She will gladly show you pictures.
