She has traveled all over the world teaching dance including numerous times at the famous Herrang Dance Camp in Sweden. She has performed on the prestigious stages of Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Social dancing and teaching are passions for Carla. She thinks that learning to dance is something everyone is capable of doing. She has an amazing ability to communicate movement and partnering in her teaching. Her dancing is grounded in technique and improvisation which coincides with the jazz music she loves to dance to. Carla is an avid fan of having fun. While learning technique is of serious importance, learning while having fun and remembering the amazing thrill of dancing while on the social floor is something she certainly wants all her students to experience and become masters of themselves. Since 2012, Carla has decreased her international traveling in order to focus on her family and on being a mom. She currently teaches and performs in the San Francisco Bay area and runs several incredible workshop throughout the year featuring wonderful, international guest instructors.
