Senior Spotlight

Lauren Mancias has been dancing since she was 4 and loves Contemporary because it combines technique with artistic freedom. Her favorite thing about The DanceWorks is the family aspect and how close all the teams are. Miss Michelle and all of the teachers are so approachable and have really been like a second family to her. Lauren’s fondest memory is from Nationals a few years ago when her team won the Grand Slam.

Her words of wisdom for other DW students is to never take any class for granted. Every class is valuable time and you never know in what other areas it might help you. After high school, Lauren plans on attending ACC for 2 years and then transferring to a university. She also wants to continue dancing locally in Austin with a contemporary based company.
