Carolyn Currey – Dance
1:11’s principal dancer and chief choreographer, Carolyn heads up the Dance Department for the team. Classically trained through the Royal Academy of Dance as both a ballet dancer and a dance teacher, Carolyn co-founded Soli Deo Gloria Ballet in 2007 and has become one of the ministry’s most recognizable faces. Prior to and concurrent with her work with SDG Ballet, she ran Daybreak Dance Studio for sixteen years, training dancers in British Columbia and Ontario.
Carolyn’s choreography has been called “superbly expressive,” utilizing influences from ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance. Award-winning recording artist Debbie Fortnum says, “Carolyn Currey is a dancer whose caliber I have not before seen in the Church . . . She is simply a gift to the Body of Christ.”
Carolyn will be teaching dance classes at our camp this year.
