Meet Carla Hernandez

A recent arrival from her native Venezuela, Carla joined the Teresa Carreno Ballet Company in Caracas in 2018, rapidly proceeding thru the ranks. In addition to corps de ballet parts, she was given soloist and principal roles such as Giselle Act II (pictured above), Don Quixote and Corsaire Pas de Deux, and Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker.

In light of the very real difficulties facing every day people in Venezuela, she was able to come to the United States to further her career with the help of extended family in Miami. She joined the company in March just as the pandemic forced our closure until August 2020.

She will make her Connecticut Ballet debut as part of BALLET UNDER THE STARS in Hartford and our upcoming live stream on the company's YouTube Channel.

Bienvenidos, Carla!
