Cara began dancing at the age of 7 at Jessica Morgan School of Dance. As a sophomore in high school, she was accepted into the Summer Residential Governor's School program for dance at Radford University. She was very involved in dance team all four years of high school, earning the title of captain her senior year.
Cara continued her dance education at Virginia Commonwealth University, taking classes under dance educators such as Starr Foster and Susan Israel Massey. Since 2015, Cara has been the Head Dance Team Coach and Choreographer for the Manchester High School Lancer Dancers, and choreographs the Lancer Theater Company musical every spring.
In 2021, Cara was nominated for “Best Lyrical Choreography” and “Dance Instructor of the Year” through the RVA Dance Awards. Cara has enjoyed every second of teaching for Prestige Dance Studio, and is so thankful to now be working with some of the same educators that placed the love of dance in her own heart. Cara would like to extend a very special 'thank you' to her loved ones, especially her husband, Christian, for the unconditional support and encouragement to follow her dance dream throughout the years.
