Lauren Ardman has been performing with Hudson River Playback Theatre since 1997, and is a graduate of the School of Playback Theatre. She continues to be excited and fascinated by the Playback, both as a creative endeavor, and as a way of being a part of positive social change. About 4 years ago, Lauren discovered Contact Improvisation and fell in love! Dance has brought her great joy, and has brought depth and newness to her Playback work. She is excited by the connection, spontaneity, challenge, and endless surprise of both forms. Lauren is the mother of a 6 year old son who also loves to move his body and be creative.
