Slaylebrity diva Laverne Cox has been a performer her whole life. She started studying dance when She was 8 years old in Mobile, Alabama and was performing in dance recitals and talent shows by the time She was in 3rd grade. Her childhood was filled with dreams of fame and performing in television and movies, and on Broadway and the great stages of the world.
She got a scholarship to study at the Alabama school of Fine Arts (ASFA) in Birmingham, Alabama and spent her high school years at that boarding school. She began her serious study of classical ballet while at ASFA. After graduating from ASFA She accepted a dance scholarship to Indiana University at Bloomington and eventually transferred to Marymount Manhattan College where She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Dance.
It was at Marymount that the acting bug bit her. Her first week there a guest teacher saw me in the hall and thought She would be perfect for a play he was doing in the theater department. This was the first of many plays She did with the theater department even though She was a dance major. While this was frowned upon, She never played by the rules. She did her first film during her senior year at Marymount. She was spotted on the subway sporting long box braids, too much make-up with long lashes, a paisley vintage coat with a faux fur collar, platform shoes, and a mini dress. Check her out now! Looking all fly, skin so luscious, levelling all the way up!
