George Lawrence II
George Lawrence II was born in San Diego, CA and raised in Atlanta, GA. George acquired his love for dance at age 11 and was adamant about perfecting his attraction to the art. The same year he enrolled in Price Performing Arts Center (PPAC) in College Park, GA where he studied lyrical, tap, jazz, modern, ballet, hip-hop and acrobatics. In 2010, George decided to further his technique at Dance Makers of Atlanta in Decatur, GA and in the summer of 2010 he was selected to attend the coveted Juilliard School. In 2011-12 George studied Dance at the State University New York Conservatory of Dance. After the completion of his freshman year, George auditioned for the hit show “So You Think You Can Dance” and went on to be a Top 10 finalist and traveled on their 30-city tour. Once the tour ended, George, at the young age of 19, moved to Los Angeles to make a living for himself by doing what he loves to do. He gives back to dance every weekend by traveling as an assistant with the New York City Dance Alliance (NYCDA) and travels the country as a sought-after choreographer, performer and instructor.
