Carla’s love for dance began in elementary school by watching Janet Jackson music videos and performing in talent shows, eventually leading to her studying Dance Kinesiology for her BFA. Carla performed in hip hop and funk crews in Calgary while dancing with Decidedly Jazz Danceworks. She returned to the West Coast and upon receiving her diploma to be a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, created workshops incorporating dance and nutrition. Her current studies involve pursuing her Masters in Dance Therapy. Carla loves educating the masses about 90s hip hop and recreating the vibes from that transformational decade of hip hop, while also thriving on the creativity and emotional expression felt in her contemporary classes. Carla values having a safe, nonjudgmental space to share and shake it with others! She is honoured to be teaching virtually from Vancouver where she lives with her husband and two children.
