Angelo State dance coach returns to her alma mater

Lauren White attended ASU, where her love as a dancer grew when she became an Angelette.

Attending a football game in the fall was all it took for Angelo State University dance coach Lauren White to go down memory lane. 

At the game White felt the energy in the football stadium, which made her think about her college years. White is a former Angelette and now she has returned to her alma mater to teach her passion to other students.

"When I was an Angelette, it was one of my best experiences here at ASU. I think that's why I have such a passion for the organization because of the memories I created as a part of the team," White said.

White's return to ASU has allowed her to put all of her energy into the team, inspiring dancers such as Kennedi Evans, who says White's presence feels almost like a celebrity to the team. 

"It's like really cool because she knows what it's like, she knows how it's supposed to be done and how we're supposed to run things. I like that she came back to show us how it's done. Her plan is just to make us better and I'm just so excited for it," Evans said.

When White heard the dance coach position was opening up, it was an opportunity she couldn't turn down. White remembers telling her husband if the position were to open up she would apply.

"I just thought that I really could make a difference if I had the opportunity. I knew I would really love to come back and impact the organization in a positive way again" White said. 

The goal for White and the Angelettes is to take the program to the next level.
