Angelique Laurin: Dancer
Washington D.C. Area
What Moves You?
“The power in the possibility is what moves me.”
I am originally from metropolitan area where I spent most of my training at Duke Ellington School of The Arts, Dance Institute of Washington, and Dance Theatre of Harlem Residency Program. Upon college, I was not accepted into the dance program and thus took on an Communication Arts Major and Photography minor. Four years later, I graduated on top of my class with honors. With diverse experience from internships and even my dance background, I was still unable to find a job. I worked retail for two years and worked my way up the corporate ladder and became an executive. At the end of my 5th year and without a job or plan, I quit. A week later, I took an Advanced Ballet Class at Brooklyn Ballet because I simply wanted to do something I love. It was there, three weeks later, that the director asked me to come and audition for the upcoming Nutcracker with the Company. Upon quitting my corporate job, I also landed NYFW show, a MAC promotional commercial and a 5 page spread in ESSENCE Magazine. Currently, I am still with Brooklyn Ballet, modeling, and taking classes to maintain my technique and skill. I look forward to the future and all that is to come of my leap of Faith!
