Carrie Eberhardt is in her eleventh year of teaching at Bailey Fine Arts. She loves teaching dance, especially tap! Carrie grew up in Hamburg, NY, just outside of Buffalo. She began dancing at Hamburg Dance Center at age 4, and danced there for 14 years, training in ballet, tap, and jazz. She attended college at SUNY Fredonia, where she earned her BS in Mathematics with a Theatre minor. Next, she moved south, to pursue her MS in Mathematical Sciences at Clemson, but also found many opportunities to participate in community theatre, and met her husband Mat! Carrie has 3 children, Nick (age 15), Emmie (age 12), and Lily (age 7). All three of them love dancing at BFA!
In the last few years, Carrie has also found a new theatre home at Town Theatre, where she has gotten to use her dance and theatre training in shows such as “Big Fish,” “Catch Me If You Can,” and most recently, “Mary Poppins”. Carrie has lived in Columbia for 17 years, and is so glad to have found a dance home at Bailey Fine Arts Centre!
