Lauren Anderson

Born in 1965, Anderson started dancing at the age of 18 at the Houston Ballet.  In 1990, she became a principal dancer. This enabled her to become the second Black female dancer to be promoted to principal dancer at a premier American ballet company.  Anderson retired from dancing in 2006; she has gone on to become an outreach associate in Houston’s ballet education department, a lecturer on the topic of ballet dance, and conducts master classes throughout the Houston educational districts.
