From Seattle, Washington, Carmen studied at Pacific Northwest Ballet School under the direction of Peter Boal. While at PNB school, she attended summer programs at San Francisco Ballet, Boston Ballet, Oklahoma City Ballet, and Miami City Ballet on full scholarship. She also studied under Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre as a member of their graduate program from 2015-2018. In 2018 she moved to Los Angeles, joining American Contemporary Ballet as an apprentice, and was promoted to the main company in 2019. While at ACB, Carmen had the opportunity to originate many corps and soloist roles in original works, as well as perform many neoclassical masterpieces by George Balanchine, including ‘Concerto Barocco’ and ‘Who Cares’. She danced with ACB for 5 seasons before departing in 2023 and is now dancing with Hollywood Ballet and KWDP. Carmen has also worked as a guest principal artist with San Pedro City Ballet, and as a guest artist with Contempo Arts Productions, where she was fortunate enough to be a part of the original cast for three new works by choreographer Marine de Vachon. Since moving to LA, she also takes great pride in her work as a ballet instructor, teaching advanced ballet to talented students all across Los Angeles.
