Laura Lobo is a native from Massachusetts and recently relocated from snowy Boston to the “snowless” Peninsula. She began dancing at 9 years old and completed her formative and professional training in all genres of dance (including ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, acrobatics, hip-hop, and tap) at the Kalia Karr Studio of Dance. Laura was specifically inspired by her teacher Kolleen Carchio. She attended college in Worcester, MA and has been teaching dance for the past 13 years. Laura is a respected choreographer and team director. Her teams have won awards nationally for her choreography, including overall high scores and special awards honoring her artistry and choreography. Her soloists have been title winners, awarded placement on dance teams, and assistant positions at conventions. Along with instructing dance classes and competition dance teams full time, Laura also recently worked as a Dance Consultant at the Burncoat High School Dance Department. Concurrently, Laura worked as choreographer for the Boston Midsummer Opera in 2013 and 2014 under the direction of the wonderful Antonio Ocampo-Guzman.
Laura’s desire is to help create confident, beautiful dancers that appreciate the art of what they are doing. She has adopted a positive competitive dance framework. Laura believes dancers are among the most talented athletes but loves that dance is a means to express yourself, and therefore, even in the competitive realm, a self-expression should always be viewed within the context of a “win”.
