She is also a board members of Vines Art Festival, Raven Spirit Dance and Live Biennale. She loves moving bodies and nature.
When her time is not being taken up by all her other projects, Carolina also works with the All Bodies Dance Project. All Bodies Dance Project is an inclusive dance company located on unceded Coast Salish Territory (Vancouver, BC, Canada). Their work brings together artists with and without disabilities to explore movement as a means of creative expression. All Bodies offers accessible and inclusive dance classes for people of all abilities. They strive to create an open, safe and fun environment where everyone can experience the joy of moving and creating within a diverse community. They seek to make opportunities for every body to discover dance and for artists with disabilities (and without) to access pre-professional dance training. The goal is to widen the spectrum of who dances and what dance can be.
Carolina will be showcasing this work at Friday Night Live and will be bringing a member of the All Bodies Dance troupe with her so that we can experience first hand the possibilities of this work. This will be a unique and wonderful evening.
