Carolyn Scanlon

My biggest motivation is seeing results and feeling more confident in my own body after each workout, it pushes me to do more and keep up the hard work!

Carolyn has had a passion for dance ever since she was 3 years old. She trained in tap, jazz, ballet and lyrical at Dance Concepts under the instruction of Judi Demers-Bavin, Sarah Nassif and Nicole Cicchetto for 18 years. During her time at Dance Concepts, she competed in several competitions all over the United States and won many awards.

Carolyn earned her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with dual concentrations in Management and Marketing at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Throughout her time in college, she taught dance classes to children of all ages as well as continued training herself. Continuing her dance education is very important to her. In 2016, Carolyn attended the Dance Teacher Summit in New York City where she took classes with many notable instructors such as Mia Michaels, Mandy Moore, Al Blackstone and Denise Wall. Carolyn was on the Lowell Spinners Dance Team in 2017, where she trained in pom jazz which at the time was a completely new style of dance to her. Carolyn always strives to expand her dance knowledge by taking master classes and attending conventions whenever she can. She has taken many dance classes at Broadway Dance Center in New York City and at Jeannette Neill Dance Studio in Boston, MA.

Teaching dance brings so much joy to Carolyn as she loves to inspire others. Her favorite thing about teaching is being able to watch her students grow and improve. Carolyn is looking forward to sharing her knowledge and passion for dance with the students at The Vitality Place.
