Following in her sister Amy Yakima’s footsteps, Lauren started dancing at age two and has grown to become a fierce and powerful contemporary dancer. Winning her first national title at age five, she has collected numerous other competition awards and titles including Hollywood Vibe National Junior Dancer of the Year and National Mini Elite West Coast Dance Explosion. Lauren uses dance to connect to the world around her and express and emote her innermost feelings and ideas, something she is eager to show the World of Dance judges and audience.
