Meet Lauren Oakley's Partner on Strictly Come Dancing

When the multi-award-winning dance program returns to BBC One and BBC iPlayer this autumn, it will feature the most extensive professional dancer lineup in history, bringing glitter, glitz, and incredible dancing to homes across the country once more.

She Had Also Already Performed With Former Strictly Dancers 

According to her LinkedIn profile, Lauren is a dance captain and a dancer with Burn The Floor who travels the world. She is a seasoned ballroom and Latin dancer and performer from the West Midlands who teaches dance and fitness classes on the Burn Nation dance platform.

During her time with Burn The Floor, she has performed in South Africa, Australia, China, Europe, North America, and Japan.

Due to her participation in Kevin and Joanne Clifton's 2020 show, An Evening With Kevin & Joanne Clifton, she has also danced with several former Strictly contestants.

Additionally, she appeared in the Him & Me tour by Giovanni Pernice and Anton Du Beke, appearing in various images uploaded at the time.

What Is Lauren Oakley Net Worth? 

Lauren Oakley's net worth is in the hundreds but if she wins on Strictly Come Dancing, she would undoubtedly amass a sizable sum, increasing her net worth.

The Strictly Come Dancing winning couple will first and foremost receive the Glitterball Trophy. Or at least a scaled-down version of the flashy one we see on television.

Although it has never been formally confirmed, it has previously been claimed, according to Metro, that each star receives a cool £25,000 for agreeing to appear on the show. According to reports, the winners receive £100,000 for participating in the program.

Any Strictly tour participants will also be able to use their time in the lineup to earn additional money on top of these costs.

The Daily Mail claims that professional dancers are paid a flat price of £50,000 each season. Given the sum mentioned above, it is clear that she makes a sizable income even from merely participating in the show.

A Peek Into Her Career 

Lauren started her career as a dance teacher. According to her LinkedIn profile, she worked as a dance instructor at Dance Warehouse from January 2006 through December 2009.

She instructed students of all ages and skill levels in ballroom and Latin dancing there. She also taught group sessions and one-on-one private lessons.

Lauren spent more than a year working for Global Radio. She first worked as an intern in the programming department from July 2011 to August 2011, where she observed and created two 3-hour shows for each radio station while considering its target audience.

Additionally, she provided audio recordings, and vox pops to the reporting team. She saw and followed the breakfast presenters and producers during their daily broadcasts, participating in planning and production meetings.

In August 2011, she received a promotion to promotional staff. Until November 2012, she held the role. Lauren promoted the brand, represented the radio station, and communicated with the target demographic while working there as a promotional staff member.

Involvement In Other Competitions

Lauren, a Birmingham native, has been dancing since she was two years old and has participated in ballroom and Latin dance competitions since she was seven.

She became a three-time British Closed Champion due to her hard work and talent, which also helped her win three significant international championships.

Her competitive career continued, and other milestones included capturing the renowned British Closed Under 21 Ballroom and Latin titles and those from the United Kingdom.

Early Life & Family 

Lauren has kept her family a secret. Since he frequently appeared on her Instagram, it seems that she was most close to her grandfather.

However, because he is no longer alive, she does not post as frequently about him. After he passed away, she wrote on Instagram, "Wishing I was at home more than ever today. Grand, you were the love of my life."

Talking about her educational background, Lauren earned a BA in broadcast journalism after attending City Technology College and Nottingham Trent University.

Given that she began dancing at a young age, her parents must support her professional life. We all want to know more about her upbringing. Thus we hope she will talk about them more shortly.
