Carina is a 10 year old competitive dancer from Tampa, Florida who has been dancing since age 2. She has been dancing competitively for 5 years.  Carina is an award winning lyrical soloist but trains in all styles of dance including ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, and acro.  She dances over 15 hours per week and her favorite dance style is ballet. Her dance inspiration is Misty Copeland.
Carina lives with her parents, 2 sisters (she’s the middle) and her dog.  She is an honor roll student and is looking forward to middle school next year.
When she isn’t dancing, she loves cooking, sewing, and crafts.  She also loves hanging out with her best friends, swimming, creating makeup tutorial videos on YouTube, going to the beach, and doing photo shoots!  She was so excited to win Oh La La Dancewear’s Elite Model search and even more excited to be named an ambassador.  She hopes to continue dance modeling. When she grows up, Carina hopes to dance professionally and eventually become a choreographer and dance instructor.
