Growing up in a family of musicians, Laura gained a deep understanding of music and rhythms in her early childhood. When she later found her passion in dancing, her musical understanding helped set speed to her learning curve and she quickly found her flair in the art of moving to music - the art of dance.
Laura instantly fell in love with the joyful and living swing dances, especially the Lindy Hop, the Jitterbug, and the Charleston. The always happy and smiling swing environment gave Laura a drive and an eagerness to learn and in 2015, she started teaching at DTU Dancing, passing on her knowledge and her passion for dance. She has tried many different dance styles which all gave her a deeper understanding of dancing and helped to further improve and expand her musical horizon. However, she enjoys the jazzy rhythms of the swing music most of all and always keeps coming back to the joyfulness and happiness of the swing dances. To quote Frankie Manning “I’ve never seen a Lindy Hopper who wasn’t smiling. It’s a happy dance. It makes you feel good.”
In Laura’s classes, you can be sure to find passion and tons of smiles as well as a fun and engaging learning environment. And to add another quote from the amazing jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald “Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”
