This is Laura’s first year with Minnesota Dance Ensemble, and she loves every second of it! She loves that she gets to be a part of such a loving and diverse group of performers. When she is not with MDE, she keeps herself busy. Laura is a 17-year-old senior at Sartell High School. She is involved with her school’s student council, choir council (secretary), show choir, knitting club (president), and gender equality club. Outside of school she takes voice lessons, piano lessons, is a barista at Caribou, and a nanny. In her very little free time she loves to do yoga, knit, read, hang out with her goofy friends, make Oh hello, on Broadway references, watch Jimmy Fallon, watch Saturday Night Live, and keep up on all things Justin Trudeau. Laura has a true passion for theatre. In the past four years, she has been in 11 theatre productions. She is hoping to pursue a B.F.A. with an emphasis in musical theatre, somewhere out-of-state, after she graduates.
