Lauren Flower (She/They) is a former dancer of the Boston Ballet with dedicated years as an Artist. Prior to their career in Boston, they were a company member with Ballet Arizona. With time spent in both companies, Flower has had opportunities to explore their choreographic voice and furthermore expand on creativity. Most recently having created a new work for Boston Ballet II, they are now using their drive and focus towards bettering a community for LGBTQ+ members who are underrepresented in ballet.
With Flower continuing to pursue their passions through choreography, they have found the importance of using this time to advocate and build a platform throughout the dance world and all companies. While Flower and others whom identify within the LGBTQ+ community, it is apparent that the underrepresentation amongst many dancers continues to be silenced.
Flower is devoted to bringing awareness towards these issues and to better the change that is long overdue.
