About Laraine

Laraine Lassig-Nelson


Laraine learned early on that she enjoyed both gymnastics and dance. She has had 5 years of gymnastics training at Missy Marlowe’s and 11 years of dance training in jazz, contemporary, lyrical and hip-hop at various studios. During her high school years, she was accomplished in both Dance Company and Cheerleading. She was the Head Cheerleader and also performed stunts as the flyer on the cheer squad. After graduation she continued dancing with adult teams and performed with Strictly Business, a professional dance group. She taught dance and tumbling for 2 years. Laraine has been the office manager for Jordan Oaks Chiropractic for 13 years and as such has developed a keen understanding of anatomy and the importance of safe practices in dance and gymnastics training. She loves gymnastics, dance, kids, and she loves to teach. She is looking forward to this new adventure at UDA.
