A warm and angelic singing voice can be heard at Bubbles Academy. Its origin is that of the superbly dedicated and talented Miss Lauren.
The Little Mermaid is what sparked Lauren’s initial love for music and desire to sing. Her performance history ranges from playing the role of Grizabella in Cats in the 8th grade to training in opera while studying at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.
Lauren began her career as an elementary school music teacher in Kansas and as a peace educator at the Children’s Peace Pavilion in Missouri. She returned to hometown Chicago and discovered a niche with Bubbles Academy. As an instructor for Music, Creative Movement and Yoga, Lauren feels privileged to interact with so many families and to be a part of their children’s growth and development from age 0 and up. She possesses the sparkling ability to bring forth children’s personalities through her upbeat silliness and nurturing spirit! We are esteemed she also shares her joyful qualities and passion for youth with the families within our Bubbles Academy classes at the Gorton Center in Lake Forest.
Lauren is an active songwriter and delights crowds throughout Chicago, including those smiling younger audiences at neighborhood festivals and at the Lincoln Park Whole Foods. Whether portraying a princess, a fairy or a rock star at one our themed Birthday parties, her genuine charm adds true flare and dimension to each party experience.
Lauren ventured to the Bahamas to receive her yoga teacher’s certification at the Sivananda Ashram. She is a member of the Yoga Alliance, and she hopes to travel to India one day to pursue another yoga immersion. We consider her a rising sun upon the Academy!
