On being named a Royal Ballet School International Scholar, Lauren said:
‘I am so excited and honoured to have been given this amazing opportunity by The Royal Ballet School. Ever since I attended the 2019 Summer Intensive at White Lodge, it has been my dream to one day return and study at The Royal Ballet School. 
 
I’m looking forward to coming back to London to train at White Lodge again soon, and in the meantime will do my best to represent The Royal Ballet School in New Zealand.’
