Laura started Dance Crew in late 2006, while finishing her studies at the University of Utah. Her passion for dance, teaching and her studio has been the main driving force behind Dance Crew’s year over year growth.
With more than 20 years of experience in dance and having trained and excelled in a wide array of styles from urban to traditional contemporary, Laura stands out from other studio directors as she continues to train and perform with different professional dance companies in Utah (League of Urban Dance - LOUD, Transfusion Hype, Underground Crew). She doesn’t just direct dance, she lives it.
From the lobby to the final bow, Laura’s devotion to Dance Crew is present in every decision made. Her directing style translates into Dance Crew’s distinctiveness. Dance Crew has received numerous awards in its short history, including originality, style, uniqueness, most entertaining, best overall and more, and Laura’s choreography has been awarded multiple times in regional competitions.
Dance Crew gives its dancers an experience they would not get at any of the other many studios in Utah. Laura wants her students to not only continue to progress and succeed in dance, but also to experience the teamwork, fun, joy and passion in the art of dance and performing.
