She continued her studies under the direction of Magdalena Maury at The Studio – Home of The Georgia Youth Ballet Company. There she was privileged to train with prestigious teachers such as Jonsie Pollock, Finis Jung, Tom Clower, Carol Szkutek ,and Alicia Alonso. 

At age fifteen, Lorraine accepted the opportunity to pursue her career in the pre-professional program at the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education, receiving many opportunities to grow as a dancer and performer. She continued her training, on a full scholarship, to Brenau University, where she majored in Dance Performance.


Although ballet was the main focus of her studies, she pursued other forms of dance to present herself as a diverse artist and instructor.

There she was also a principal dancer with the Southeastern Ballet Company, a professional company founded by Ms. Hassaan.
