Your Dream, Your Stage

“I’m so fortunate that I was able to finish high school and not compromise on my education while pursuing ballet. Oftentimes, dancers have to sacrifice absolutely everything for a chance to dance. At Laurel Springs, this wasn’t the case for me.”

Laurel Springs Alumni Julia Jones

One thing that I really love about being at Laurel Springs is being able to set my own pace and make my own schedule. When I'm traveling, I don't really do that much online work for Laurel Springs because I just need to be in the zone, especially if I'm at a competition or something. It’s very rigorous and I need to make an effort to become better and put all my knowledge into my craft.”
