Lara Davis - Dancer, Choreographer
LARA DAVIS has been dancing since the age of four, when she first began her training at Roswell’s own Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance, and then for eight years she belonged to the Roswell Dance Theatre pre-professional company. Her choreography for RDT was presented in the Emerging Choreographers Showcase of the 2013 Southeast Regional Ballet Association Festival.
Davis recently graduated from the University of Georgia where she studied psychology and dance science with honors, taught ballet and pointe classes at Dancefx (Athens), studied abroad with the Russian Voronezh Ballet, performed each year in the Spring Dance Concert and Young Choreographers Series.
Davis also has experience with the Georgia Ballet, Refuge Dance, and Dance Canvas. She is now a freelance choreographer, dancer and teacher based in Atlanta, Ga. and considers herself to be an “all-around arts and wellness enthusiast.” She provide private lessons in both ballet and modern dance as well as solo and group choreography.
Most recently, she premiered her choreography “Ode to my School Days” through the Dance Canvas 10th Anniversary Series at the Ferst Center for the Arts and also presented the piece at the Georgia Ballet’s Dancers Up Close performance. Lara is currently performing with Watershed Dance Theatre in Atlanta in their upcoming show “Moments” at the Emory Performing Arts Studio on September 8th.
Throughout all of her work, Davis manages to unite her passions for teaching, movement and creativity.
