Lauren Swedberg began her dance training at age 3 and has been dancing ever since. She has always had a passion for both dance and fitness and worked as a personal trainer and fitness instructor as she earned her bachelor’s degree in dance.
After performing for many years, Lauren moved on to teaching and choreographing both privately and in the Lee County School District. She thoroughly enjoys seeing her students evolve and develop the same love of dance that she has always had.
