Carolyn Yates grew up dancing and cannot remember a time she didn’t consider herself a dancer. Her formal studies took her through several summers at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp. She holds a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle WA. She also holds multiple certifications in teaching yoga with over 500 hours of training. Over the last two decades Carolyn has shifted her focus between dance and yoga several times. During these periods of time she has danced with professional companies, choreographed for regional shows large and small, offered instruction in jazz, modern, choreography and yoga, owned and operated a small yoga studio, taught for yoga festivals and brought two more little movers and shakers into the world.
Carolyn currently dances with Industrial Dance Alliance (Broomfield, CO) and Interweave Dance Theater (Boulder, CO). She is loving living in Fort Collins and is excited to share her love of dance with the vibrant community here.
