About Lauren Lovette
New York, New York
Lauren Lovette (CBA ’18) began choreographing in 2007 as a student at the School of American Ballet. While enrolled there, she participated in two choreographic workshops and was then selected to create a work for the 2009 New York Choreographic Institute. In 2016, Lovette choreographed for the New York City Ballet (NYCB) Fall Fashion Gala, and was commissioned to make a work for an arts seminar at Kirkland and Ellis Law. In 2017, she choreographed for the Vail International Dance Festival, the NYCB Fall Season Gala, and the American Ballet Theatre Studio Company. With NYCB, Lovette has been employed as a dancer since 2009 and principal dancer since 2015.
A Journey of Discovery
At The Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU, Lovette will immerse herself in a laboratory of unfamiliar artistic and academic disciplines in order to provoke deeper thought and openness to contrasting points of view and push her own personal comfort level beyond classical dance. She plans to include sign language as a medium of universal expression and open up opportunities for artists of different disciplines potentially including a poet, guitarist, and dancers with whom she has not previously worked. Lovette will use CBA’s resources to stretch her creative imagination and unlock new personal creative boundaries. Her perseverance through her own fighting path will be an underlying blueprint for every new choreographic work she creates at The Center.
