Lauren Timek has a well rounded 20+ years of experience in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, character, hip hop, pantomime, musical theater, & voice performance. She has trained and performed with Major Performing Arts, David Blight, Bravo!, Broadway Dance Center, Gina Malsky – Professional Ballerina and Ballet Mistress, Trinette Singleton of Joffery Ballet, and NAPE Broadway Theater and Dance Company.
Lauren has been professionally instructing and coaching dance for the past 9 years and is currently instructing at The Dance Theatre of Wilkes – Barre and The Academy of Movement in Reading, Pa. In addition to being an instructor, Lauren also travels PA, NY and NJ privately coaching and teaching master classes to aspiring professionals. Lauren has been a member of the Kutztown University Dance Team where she served as the team’s choreographer and also was a member of the R-Phils Dance Team where she served as a co-captain. Lauren holds an abundant number of competitive dance and vocal regional and national titles and is now responsible for the training of many students who have become national titleists.
Lauren made her Broadway debut in 2000 appearing in Broadway’s Nutcracker and again in 2001 for Broadway’s Cinderella. She was selected as a Dancer in Magic Kingdom from 2006 -2008 until perusing other professional performance opportunities. Most recently, Lauren was employed as a New York Jets Cheerleader for three seasons which afforded her opportunities such as national tv appearances, high profile dance contracts such as dancing for Lenny Kravitz , and performing at the Super Bowl 48 hosted at Metlife stadium.
Aside from the performing arts, Lauren is also a certified competition judge and pageant coach. She feels fortunate to be continuing her training when not instructing with Master instructor’s, and more recently was afforded the opportunity to study along side current industry dance pros such as Lauren Froderman (SYTYCD) , Alex Wong (SYTYCD), and Aaron Turner (SYTYCD). Instructing and sharing her love for the Arts is Lauren’s true passion.
