Lauren Jenkins

Born in London, Lauren started by training at The BRIT School for two years where she studied a variety of styles. Alongside this she danced with Rambert’s Youth Company, Quicksilver, performing at Move It and U-dance. Lauren decided to further her training in contemporary dance, completing a first class honours degree at London Contemporary Dance School. It was here Lauren found a curiosity in the boundaries of physicality and the endless creative potentials of movement, working with practitioners such as Leila McMillian, Chisato Ohno, Marso Riviere and Richard Alston. During these three years Lauren has performed her own choreography in a site specific event at The British Library, and even danced for PINK at The 2019 Brit Awards. These opportunities have highlighted how it is essential for her to collaborate physical skill with individual artistry. In these past few years Lauren has enjoyed being constantly inspired by her peers, mentors and the environment she is consumed in. She is looking forward to furthering her practice this year by immersing herself in new influential experiences.
