Lauren Gottlieb
The talent, the charm, the beauty and the humor, which Lauren Gottlieb exudes in her everyday life, also carries through to her performances both on-screen and on the dance floor where she has so very quickly established herself as one of Hollywood’s rising stars and one of the most sought- after dancers in the country. After winning over America on Fox Network’s hit reality series, “So You Think You Can Dance,” Lauren emblazoned herself through to the final six contestants. Lauren hardly missed a beat and soon every major choreographer in the business wanted to work with her and multi-platinum recording artists were lining up to have her on tour performing with them. 
For the 2007 Grammy Awards, Lauren performed alongside Shakira, and then soon found herself rehearsing with Mariah Carey for her upcoming world tour and making appearances on such national headline shows as “Good Morning America.” This past year at Fox Network’s request, Lauren returned to the network for American Idol’s “Idol Gives Back” special with several of her fellow “So You Think You Can Dance” cast-mates. Originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, Lauren knew she wanted to dance at the age of 7 years old. She trained in jazz, ballet, hip-hop, lyrical, tap, and musical theater and describes her style of dance as a mix of contemporary, jazz-funk and hip-hop. In 2006, Lauren relocated to Los Angeles to continue the pursuit of her dance career and very soon after began working with noted choreographer Tyce Diorio with whom she assisted during Season 2 of “So You Think You Can Dance” as well as with Tobey McGuire, in his preparations for “Spiderman 2.” She then made the decision to audition for and won a spot in the case of “So You Think You Can Dance” for the following year’s season. 
Most recently, Lauren’s big screen duties have put her side by side with Miley Cyrus in the “Hannah Montana: The Movie” feature film, in the feature “Bring It On: Fight To the Finish” and performing opposite Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Minnillo in the feature film, “Disaster Movie.” 
Her many recent television project include five episodes of Fox Network’s hit series “Glee” as well as CBS Network’s “Ghost Whisperer,” FX Network’s “Nip Tuck,” “the Teen Choice Awards,” “Carrie Underwood’s Holiday Special” and “Paula Abdul Tribute.” In 2009, Lauren was also asked to return to the Fox Network’s continued hit show “So You Think You Can Dance – Season 5” as the show’s audition tour choreographer, as well as starring in the official “So You Think You Can Dance - Workout DVD.” A true testament not only to her abilities, but America’s continued to interest and excitement in her performances. Lauren has appeared in numerous national commercial spots including Subway, AT&T, Old Navy and Nike. She also just recently completed work; assisting Tabitha & Napoleon in the choreography of Cirque Du Soleil’s hit show, “Viva Elvis.” 
Lauren’s love of entertainment never seems to wane as she continues to venture into new territory, recently beginning work on her own original music and several notable hit music produces as well as launching her own clothing line of dance inspired apparel which can also be found at Lauren’s recent successful hosting stint for Gatorade’s “Leave it on the Floor” continues to lead to speculation at the possibility of hosting her own performance lifestyle show in the very near future. 
Somehow, in the midst of Lauren’s amazingly crazy schedule she still makes the time to continue to bring to others her amazing passion and commitment to performance.
