My experience as a dancer with Laurel Youth Ballet was truly extraordinary. After dancing with several other studios/academies for ten years, I attended a summer intensive at LYB and was immediately hooked by the artistic professionalism of the staff and the obvious accomplishment of the other dancers. I realized that this was a place that would challenge me to become a much better dancer in terms of technique, performance quality, and knowledge of the artform. I joined LYB the following fall and stayed for the next four years. The high-quality classes and performances are some of my fondest memories from my high school years. I found a home with the staff and fellow dancers and created friendships that will endure for the rest of my life. I've become an advocate for the arts and continue to dance and choreograph at the college level. My time at LYB will forever be a highlight of my performing years. My only regret is that I didn't join the company earlier.
