Read about the origin of the design here or below!
Those who have been to the studio or have been following Lauren since she began teaching, know exactly what the graphic is. For those who haven’t yet been, it’s simply a silhouette of Lauren’s infamous Zumba pigtails. What almost no one (until now) likely realizes, is that it’s so much more. Truth be told, Lauren had been searching for over six months for a “symbol” that represented the studio. Something about friendship, support, acceptance, dedication, fun. Something different, yet simple. Despite virtually every suggestion to her being that she simply use a graphic of herself, she kept searching. Finally, one day, it dawned on her (ok, with the help of a few very insistent friends ;-)), she wasn’t looking for some crafted up, inanimate object. Frankly, that’s the exact OPPOSITE of what came to mind when she thought of her studio. She finally realized, the pigtails DO represent ALL of what she was looking for … it was there all along. It isn’t just a graphic of her, it’s so much more than that. It’s a symbol of individuality and expression. Of smiling and fun and intimacy and passion. Looking at it invokes the sentiments she hopes every single FRIEND that walks through the doors feels … acceptance. It’s not an image of Lauren, it’s an image of you. It’s the you that’s deep inside, coming out day by day, or full on out and wreaking AMAZING havoc in this world! It’s a connection. From her to you. From you to another friend. It connects all of us. Oh, and it sure as heck gets a lot of stares, that doesn’t hurt business too much ;-). So, when you see the symbol, or when you doodle the symbol, remember what it represents. And most important, remember to LIVE what it represents. No better way to be 🙂
Be fit … Be friends … Have fun!!!
