Carla Flores is originally from Austin, Texas, where she began her dance training, but later moved to Houston, where she attended the distinguished High School for the Performing and Visual Arts as a dance major. She studied and performed with several companies in Texas and Oklahoma, and was invited to perform nationally, as well as in China and France. Her passion for teaching dance led her to the University of Oklahoma, where she earned a BFA degree in Ballet Pedagogy, and later to the completion of a Master of Arts in Teaching Dance in the Professions, with a concentration in American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) Ballet Pedagogy, from New York University. Ms. Flores is a fully certified ballet teacher in ABT’s National Training Curriculum, and continues to work as a teaching artist for ABT’s Educational Outreach Program. She also serves as program administrator, and as an adjunct professor, for New York University’s Dance Education program. She is excited to return as a ballet instructor at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School’s Children’s Division.
