Meet Christina Lauria! This Roanoke native has been a dancer her whole life and has a passion to share her love of dance with others. She’s turned her passion into a career and begins her new adventure in Los Angeles this week. We absolutely love the time Christina spends with us at JDR when she’s in town – her bubbly personality and contagious smile can light up any room. This girl is destined for great things. Go show LA what you’ve got, Christina! We can’t wait to hear all about your journey!
So, you’ve been taking classes here since December of 2012. What brought you to your first class?
I passed JDR on my way to dance class everyday and was always intrigued by the bright colors and the disco ball. Two of the biggest components in my life are fitness and dancing so when I researched what JDR was, I knew I had to try it out for myself. Obviously, I fell in love.
What are your favorite songs to twerk-out to when you’re dancing with us?
My favorite songs are high energy or hip hop, especially Beyonce!
