Carrie earned her BFA in dance at New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida. She has since danced with Nashville Ballet 2, Momentum Dance Company, Karen Peterson and Dancers, a mixed ability company making works for able-bodied dancers alongside dancers with disabilities, as well as with the Limon Company during their residency at Vanderbilt University in 2007. Touring the South Eastern U.S., Brazil and the Caribbean with many of these and other dance ensembles created wonderful opportunities for her to experience a variety of techniques and movement voices. Carrie now serves on the faculty of Belmont University's dance program where she has created and teaches the first dance kinesiology curriculum offered at the university. She also teaches courses in ballet, modern, Pilates and pedagogy, in addition to choreographing works for the Belmont Dance Company. Having served as a teaching artist with the Art Smart Program through the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, she draws on the ideas of aesthetic education to facilitate her teaching. Carrie also dances and choreographs for Epiphany Dance Company, teaches private lessons, and classes for movers of all levels of experience designed to facilitate comfort, skill and pleasure through movement. Carrie joined New Dialect in October 2012 where she has had the opportunity to participate in the creation of new works by Banning Bouldin, as well as join the roster of teaching artists for New Dialect’s Contemporary Cross-Training Series.
