Laura began dancing at the age of seven at Dance Vision Performing Arts Studio in Barrie and joined their competitive team at age eleven. During her seven years as a competitive team member, Laura competed at various competitions throughout Ontario in jazz, tap, ballet, musical theatre, lyrical, and hip hop and won numerous awards for her groups, trios, duets, and solos. Laura also volunteered as a dance teaching assistant in her youth and taught younger students jazz and tap in her final three years of high school. Laura was also very active in the dance program at Bear Creek Secondary School, acting as a peer assistant for a younger dance class, helping with choreography for the musicals, and dancing on the dance team. Laura was accepted to the BFA – Dance program at York University, but chose to major in anthropology with dance as a minor. In addition to minoring in dance, Laura also danced on the York Lions Performance Dance Team and the York Lions Competitive Dance Team. Most recently, Laura completed her Master of Arts in Social Anthropology, but dance continues to be a huge part of her life and she is super excited to be back at Kreative Dance Company to share her passion with others!
