Miss Lauren began dancing at age two under the guidance of Joyce Smilek in the very same dance studio she owns today. Miss Lauren is accomplished in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Musical Theater,Creative Movement, Yoga and Acrobatics and has competed in regional and national dance competitions/conventions. She began student teaching at the age of eleven and has been teaching ever since. While sharing her love of dance with younger students, she continued her own dance education at the Princeton Ballet School, Broadway Dance Center and Steps in New York City. In 2001, she began teaching for Dance Attitudes and took over as Assistant Director of their Hamilton location. In 2007, she became full owner and changed the studio's name to Front & Center Dance Studio. Over the years, Miss Lauren's students have had great success at various competitions and are always involved in local community events. Miss Lauren is a graduate of Rider University, finishing with her Master's degree in Accounting. Miss Lauren has joyously combined her love of dance and teaching with her business sense to create the perfect environment for confident young dancers to develop their own passion for the art form and achieve great success in all they do. Her healthy mix of fun and discipline in the classroom sets the tone for the entire studio's atmosphere. She truly was born to do what she does!
