Current Fulbright Scholar
Lauren is a dancer, choreographer and artist from Chicago, Illinois.
During her undergraduate years at Princeton University, Lauren majored in Architecture and spent her summers training in Hip-Hop dance intensives all over the world. Over the past few years, she has trained in Senegal, Germany, Japan, and New York City, which has allowed her to experience the vastness of hip-hop’s global influence. For her senior thesis in the Department of Dance, she was the first student to create a full-length Hip-Hop dance work titled “Over Exposure”.
Lauren enjoyed a summer residency with Urban Movement Arts in Philadelphia, creating her first solo work Threshold, before relocating to New York and joining Concept Kinetics, a hip-hop dance theater company founded by James Cricket Colter, and all-female urban dance collective L/A/Y/E/R/S, founded by Léa Ono. She has also collaborated with artists including Marguerite Hemmings and Ryan Wolfe on multidisciplinary projects.
After graduating in 2019, she was asked to return to Princeton to curate and teach Princeton’s first ever hip-hop technique curriculum. This curriculum brought in artists of color from the NYC/NJ dance community into the Princeton classroom. She is proud to have created a lasting impact in the Princeton dance community.
