Miss Carolina is originally from the South part of Brazil. Although Latin rhythms are innate to her and styles such as the Samba, Salsa and Bolero come naturally, Classic Ballet has always been her passion and from the age of four she danced at Allegro Ballet where she danced many roles such as “The Sugar Plum Fairy- Nutcracker” and “Kitri- Don Quixote”.
Languages were her second passion, which led her to an ESL major at Feevale University, Brazil, during which she accepted an internship program in the US in 2004 which brought her to WI, a state she now calls home.
Miss. Carolina is a certified teacher through the American Ballet Theater National Training Curriculum levels Pre Primary – Level 5.
The ABT National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.

“I love it when I can inspire confidence in my students to embrace everything that makes them special. When they see that, the sky becomes the limit for them”.
