During school, Carly had the opportunity to continue her studies over the summer at workshops and intensives such as the American Ballet Theatre's Summer Program and Governors Honors Program. Carly attended Point Park University on a Dance and Academic scholarship where she majored in Commercial and Contemporary Jazz. During her time at Point Park, Carly had the opportunity to study in London for a semester at Regent's University where her focus was on Theatre and Ancient Arts.

In her free time Carly loves to paint, tye dye, cook, go camping and spend lots of time with her dog Nike. She is ready to embrace the challanges of teaching online at the start of the 2020-2021 school year but also can't wait for the day she has students back in the theatre and studio. Sending love to you all!
