Kevin St. Laurent

Kevin St. LaurentKevin St. Laurent began his dancing career at the young age of eight years. Though initially reluctant, his mother ('Thank you Mom') insisted he "try it" for a little while. He's been 'trying' it ever since. His initial 3 years were spent studying tap, ballet, and jazz.

See special photos from the early years.

Kevin has studied a plethora of other dance styles including, Hungarian Couple Dancing, Mexican Folklorico, Contra Dancing, Scandinavian Couple Dancing, Modern Dance, West African Dancing, Break Dancing, Hip Hop, Balkan Line Dances (including Bulgarian, Greek, Bosnian, Croatian, Romanian, Turkish & Serbian), Ballroom Standards, Scottish Country Dancing, and a few others to boot.
