Professional dancer Lauren Sion ‘04’s passion for dance didn’t start out in the traditional sense.
“My interest in dance was sparked by my parents — they encouraged me to take classes when I was little so that I would have something to put for my extracurricular activities when I applied to college At first I hated dancing,” confessed Lauren, who has been dancing since the age of four, “but after I discovered the versatility inherent in dance and all creative work, I fell in love with it. There are so many different dance styles to learn and enjoy.”
Today, Lauren lives in New York City and dances professionally with the Lower East Side-based Rod Rodgers Dance Company. When not performing, Lauren also teaches and choreographs throughout the greater New York metropolitan area.
After graduating from Moravian Academy in 2004, Lauren received her BA in Dance from Muhlenberg in 2008 with Magna Cum Laude Honors, having trained in various styles and techniques such as ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, contemporary, hip hop, and tap.
