Carol trained at Stella Mann College and, on graduating, danced professionally whilst also teaching dancing in vocational colleges. As well as being an adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festival, Carol now runs two part-time schools, a ballet school in Hampstead and a performing arts school in Tonbridge, Kent. Many pupils compete in local Federation festivals and are successful in finals at the Peacock Theatre. Many pupils go on to vocational colleges and shows in the West End or teaching. Some junior pupils already have parts in West End musicals.
