MEET OUR DIRECTOR
Caroline Arnold began her training at the age of 5 in Palm City, Florida, training with Alicia Chodera at the Dance Academy of Stuart. She moved to Texas when she was 10 and continued her ballet studies at Ballet Academy of Texas in Coppell, and at Houston Ballet’s Ben Stevenson Academy during high school. Caroline attended Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music on scholarship and studied under many notable instructors including distinguished ballerina Violette Verdy. She left Indiana University after her junior year of college to join Kansas City Ballet and completed her degree while dancing professionally, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Ballet Performance in 2014.
Caroline danced professionally with Kansas City Ballet, Ballet West and with the Romanian National Ballet. She is now thrilled to have the opportunity to share her passion for ballet with her students at the Aledo Academy of Ballet.
Caroline is active in her church and enjoys spending time with her family and traveling, when not in the studio. She has many wonderful friends from her years dancing with Romanian National Ballet and looks forward to returning to Europe someday to visit them.
