Dance Guest Artists
Lauren Auyeung is a dancer and choreographer based in New York City, and alumnus of Princeton University (Class of 2019). During her time at Princeton, she was an active spokesperson for the inclusion of hip-hop dance programming and representation in the Lewis Center for the Arts. 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. During a summer residency in Philadelphia with Urban Movement Arts, Lauren created her first solo work, entitled “Threshold,” and began making valuable connections with the Philly dance community. Since moving to NYC, she has joined “Concept Kinetics,” a hip-hop dance theater company founded by James Cricket Colter, “L/A/Y/E/R/S,” an all-female urban dance collective founded by Léa Ono, and Neighbors Dance Company, a NYC-based hip-hop competition group. She is also collaborating with artists including Marguerite Hemmings and Ryan Wolfe on multidisciplinary projects. Lauren is grateful to be giving back to the Princeton dance community through the Hip-Hop Co-Curricular Dance series.
