A NOTE FROM LAURA:
After seven amazing and challenging years with Hubbard Street, I have decided that it is time for me to move on. I have always considered my life post dance and am ready to embark on this new adventure. I will be starting law school at the University of Maryland in the fall of 2011, returning to my hometown of Baltimore. This has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever been faced with, but I am confident that I am ready for the next phase of my life. I thank all of you who have supported me through my evolution as a professional dancer, and hope that you wish me well for the great challenges that are soon to come...
With much love, respect, and gratitude,
