Carlene Raibley


Carlene Raibley loved dancing since she was three and later trained at Northern California Dance Conservatory where she focused on Modern and Contemporary styles. Along with training in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and Tap dance, Carlene enjoys exploring many partnering styles including Contact Improvisation, Swing, Salsa, Bachata, and Blues dancing in her free time. Her interest in connecting with dancers all over the world and learning more took her to London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS) where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts First Class Honours degree. While at LCDS she studied under dancers and choreographers from Scottish Dance Theatre, Sydney Dance Company, Punchdrunk, Batsheva Dance Company, DV8 Physical Theatre, Gravity and Levity, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Richard Alston Dance, Rubberband Dance, and Van Huynh Company. She explored studies of choreography, technique, artistry, improvisation, and performance. During her time living aboard, Carlene also worked at Disneyland Paris as a Parade Dancer and Character Performer. She enjoyed bringing magic to life for three seasons with Disney. Currently Carlene is working at NCDC as a Ballet instructor while expanding her own choreographic work.
