Lauren Garson graduated from Point Park University with a BFA in Dance. Immediately following, she became a company member of METdance in Houston, TX, performing works by Robert Battle, Kate Skarpetowska, Peter Chu, Kevin Wynn and Jason Parsons. After four years, Lauren moved to Chicago, IL where she completed a full STOTT Pilates certification, and then on to New York where she danced with Parsons Dance, touring nationally and internationally.
Lauren also worked with Sue Bernhard Danceworks, performing at festivals including Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out and American Dance Guild. She participated in programs and workshops with Doug Varone, the Limon Institute, Mark Morris Dance Group and Springboard Danse Montreal. Traveling to Europe, she spent time training at The Place in London and workshops with Hofesh Shechter Company.
In 2016, she moved to Cleveland as a member of GroundWorks DanceTheater, working with choreographers Kate Weare, Loni Landon, Robyn Mineko-Williams, Gina Gibney, Eric Handman and Rosie Herrera. While in Cleveland, she began to build her administrative resume as Assistant to the Director of Ohio City Theatre Company.
Upon returning to New York City in 2018, Lauren made a career shift into the out-of-home advertising industry. She now works at Intersection, an Alphabet-owned, media/technology company where she is an Account Executive on the Revenue team. In her free time, she dances with a favorite choreographer Joe Celej and one day hopes to create an artists’ residency in rural Pennsylvania with her fiancé.
