THE DIME PIECE: Lauren Kleban

Lauren Kleban photo by Bryan Alano Photography (www.bryanalano.com).

You know you’ve got something special when you get a text from 2 am the night before saying, “Dude, I think I found your next Dime Piece.

The text was regarding Lauren Kleban.  The text author, Sean.

So of course we had to meet her.  You don’t send those texts that late at night unless you were serious.

And when we finally met her? The first thing we thought to ourselves was “Damn, Lauren is one of the coolest people we have ever met.  Let’s do this.”

After seeing the results of the photoshoot and interview, we’re glad we did.

When we were shooting these photos, we were pretty damn impressed with what we saw. Lauren Kleban image from Bryan Alano Photography (www.bryanalano.com).

A little bit about Lauren:

  • Lauren has been dancing since a very young age and possesses a love for her craft that embodies her entire being.  According to her, “I couldn’t have a life without dancing.  It’s everything that I am.
  • Lauren is an accomplished dancer, choreographer, fitness and yoga instructor
  • Choreographed Jessica Lowndes’ (of Beverly Hills 90210 fame) first music video
  • Over the past few years she has taught at Movement Studio in Los Angeles,  Tracy Anderson Method in Los Angeles and The Pole Fitness Studio in Las Vegas

She’s currently teaching at the International Academy of Dance and Movement Studio in Los Angeles, dances at a few Los Angeles clubs (such as Agency) and right before we did our shoot, she was at the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

We’re hoping to see bigger and brighter things from Lauren in the future.
