My Laurieann Gibson Interview..

She is a breath of fresh air within the world of dance and so passionate she puts the boom in kack! VMA Award and Emmy nominated creative director and celebrity choreographer Laurieann Gibson has broken boundaries and set the bar so high that there are very few that can reach her level.

She eats, breathes and sleeps dance and has recently taken time out of her consistently busy schedule to give back to communities by sharing her passion with young female dancers aspiring to make it. ‘Born to Dance’, is Laurie’s new reality TV show – if you enjoyed E! Entertainment’s Dance Scene you will adore BET’s ‘Born To Dance’, where she gives emerging dancers the opportunity to fulfil their dreams.

Originally from Toronto, Canada Laurie’s life tells the magical story of a young girl with big dreams, who embarked on a greyhound bus journey to The Big Apple at just 17 to share her talent with the US entertainment industry – and she has never looked back. Having studied at the prestigious Alvin Ailey Dance Company, Laurieann initially trained as a classical dancer and then made the transition from traditional theatre dance to Hip-hop.

Many will remember how she rose to public prominence and stardom, vigorously training MTV ‘Making the Band’ groups Danity Kane and Day 26 hired by Rap mogul P Diddy and becoming Director of Choreography at Bad Boy Records. Miss Gibson also famously appeared in and choreographed hit film ‘Honey’ starring Jessica Alba, a film which is infact based on her life.

She has worked with some of the biggest talents of our generation from Michael and Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Brandy, JoJo, Cassie, Keri Hilson, Mary J. Blige and Lady Gaga to name but a few. She’s a beast when it comes to her profession and leaves no room for half hearted dance instructing – with a persona and wisdom which inspires every person she collaborates with..
