Carla has been teaching dance for over 30 years. Growing up in Thunder Bay, she started dancing at the age of 3. She completed her exams in Ballet, Jazz and Tap. Growing up she competed both locally and out of town but she soon found her true love was not performance but instead working with children. Teaching became her passion. As well as a dance teacher Carla graduated with her Bachelor of Education, is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers and is a full time teacher with the Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board.
Carla is recognized for her versatility and enthusiasm with the ability to teach all different levels. Her award winning choreography has graced many competitions and festivals both locally and out of town. Students she’s trained have gone on to win top titles, overall high scores, scholarships and some have pursued successful professional careers.
Her genuine love for children and dance, along with her patience and warm-hearted nature makes her a favourite among students of all ages.
