As part of the Program in Dance’s fall 2021 co-curricular dance offerings, Lauren Auyeung leads a class on Hip-Hop Groove.

This class series develops a diverse understanding of hip-hop’s foundational forms. With an emphasis on physical techniques, the class exposes dancers to the many dance forms that exist under the umbrella of hip-hop. Through the sessions, students will understand the basics of hip-hop’s form and will also be challenged to synthesize elements of groove, musicality, texture, footwork, and personal expression in their own individual improvisation. The series is curated by Princeton dance alum Lauren Auyeung ’19 and taught by Auyeung and guests. All experience levels welcome.

During her time at Princeton, she was an active spokesperson for the inclusion of hip-hop dance programming and representation in the Lewis Center. After choreographing her first full-length hip-hop dance-theater work, “Over-Exposure” for her senior thesis, she decided to pursue a career in the arts. This past year she lived in Philly and NYC, working with artists including James Cricket Colter and Marguerite Hemmings. She was recently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to continue her study of Hip-Hop at Trinity Laban Dance Conservatory in London. Lauren is grateful to continue giving back to the Princeton dance community through the Hip-Hop Co-Curricular Dance series.
