At the tender age of three, Caroline began the journey of exploring movement, breath work and dance. After fifteen years of ballet, Caroline's life revolved around singing, dancing and acting. This "triple threat" 's exploration of the mind body spirit connection grew through voice work classes during her Full Time Two Year Training at Gastown Actor’s Studio. Using movement, writing and voice to develop programs to build self-esteem and changing lives, Caroline has collaborated with community groups in Metro Vancouver to bring opportunities to explore this work to vulnerable populations. Some of the highlights include founding the award-winning Beauty Night Society fifteen years ago, speaking engagements that include a TEDX talk, and scholarships for additional training.
Through Aradia Fitness, Caroline was one of Canada’s first pole dance for fitness instructors. When she became their instructor trainer on the West Coast, she developed classes, training and certified instructors. One of the classes she created for Aradia was Ballet abs, buns and thighs. She has taught barre and ballet body classes at UBC Recreation, Hollyburn Country Club, and SFU Recreation.
