Laura trained at The Skelton Hooper School of Dance in Hull from age 9 where her passion for Ballet started. At age 16 Laura was accepted into The Royal Ballet Upper School where she studied for 3 years under both Dame Meryl Park and Gailene Stock. During Laura's 2nd and 3rd years with the school, she was selected to work with The Royal Ballet Company to perform in many classical ballets in the U.K. and also on their tour to China and Japan. She also performed with Birmingham Royal Ballet on their UK tour of the Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet, as well as San Francisco Ballet's Swan Lake. Unfortunately due to injury, Laura's career as a dancer was cut short and she later went on to study with The Royal Academy of Dance to become a qualified teacher. Laura now teaches for The Royal Ballet School Junior Associate Programme in Leeds, the Northern School of Contemporary Dance on their CAT Programme (Centre for Advanced Training), and works freelance across the Yorkshire region providing private tuition and workshops.
