Lauren Dini is a member of our Senior Ballet Faculty.
Miss Lauren was a founding member of Project Ballet. As a student, she rose through all levels of our syllabus and graduated from our Academic Conservatory.
From a very early age it was apparent that Miss Lauren had a gift for teaching. She was hand picked by Mrs. McLeish to join the teaching staff part-time while still a student in the school and began teaching full-time immediately upon graduation. Miss Lauren is the only faculty member who is trained in all levels of the Project Ballet syllabus, is the primary instructor of the first two levels of our Training Program and is the youngest member of our elite Senior Faculty. She also serves as the lead coordinator of our annual Nutcracker production.
In addition to her work at Project Ballet, Miss Lauren is currently pursuing a degree in therapeutic massage at Ivy Tech. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and puppy, and loves to keep her sister (former Project Ballet alumni and former member of our faculty) updated on everything happening at Project Ballet!
Miss Lauren would like to acknowledge the profound impact that this organization has had on her life and on the lives of so many young dancers in this region. She credits Project Ballet for everything she has accomplished in the ballet world as a teacher and student, and is so unbelievably thankful for all of the opportunities that Project ballet has provided her in both realms.
Lastly, she would like to give a special thanks to Mrs. McLeish who has offered guidance throughout her life, and who has always been a role model and example for her as a student and teacher. She cannot wait to continue to learn and improve as a teacher from not only Mrs. McLeish, but from every member of the staff that support and inspire her everyday. She looks forward to another school year and cannot wait to get back in the studio to begin working with each student at Project Ballet!
