"Balance is not something you find.
It is something you create."
- Jana Kingsford
Laura Hamm founded Balance in 2021 to provide quality dance training for students of all ages. Laura is committed to building a studio that instills confidence and self-discipline in a safe, supportive environment that is FUN! A former professional ballet dancer with The Georgia Ballet, Laura has taught various dance styles at several schools, including Cincinnati Ballet, The Georgia Ballet, and Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education.
Since 2005, Laura has worked at Coxe Curry & Associates where she provides strategic fundraising consultation to nonprofit clients including: Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium, St. Martin’s Episcopal School, and The Woodruff Arts Center. Prior to joining Coxe Curry, Laura was The Georgia Ballet’s director of marketing and development.
Laura is a graduate of L.E.A.D. Atlanta and a founding board member of Dance Canvas Inc. She earned an M.B.A, an M.A. in Arts Administration and a B.F.A. in Dance from the University of Cincinnati. She and her husband, Darren, have two young children (and a puppy) who keep her on her toes.
While we finalize details on our permanent home, we are holding classes at a beatiful studio in Chamblee at Aatma Dance. In addition to a large dance floor, the space includes a viewing area for parents, restrooms, and ample parking.
