Claudine Carter Pereira
Claudine Carter Pereira began dancing at the age of three, in Freeport, Bahamas, where she was born and raised, acquiring a strong foundation and love for dance. From the age of nine through most of her teen years, she studied extensively with the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City in their Trainee Program. Claudine put her dance career on the “back-burner” to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Loyola College in Maryland and later a Master of Science Degree in Forensic Science from Virginia Commonwealth University. Despite her change in career path, she continued dancing throughout graduate school at both Virginia Commonwealth University and Richmond Ballet.
She has taught Ballet, Modern (Horton Technique), Jazz and Tap to various age groups ranging from ages three to adult in the Bahamas, Virginia, Maryland, and Florida. While in the Bahamas, Claudine was awarded 1st Place in the National Arts Festival in the area of Dance. She also participated in the NAACP’s ACTSO Competitions – in the Dance Category, where she was awarded 1st Place in the Florida Regional and State Competitions and received an Honorable mention in the National Competition.
Claudine has performed as a dancer and ensemble singer in various musical theater productions including South Pacific, Kiss Me Kate and Anything Goes. During her time here in Florida, Claudine performed as a soloist with the South Broward Ballet Company (in Hollywood) in various performances including Don Quixote, Nutcracker, Peter & the Wolf, Sleeping Beauty and the principal role in Cinderella. From February of 2003 – October 2009, Claudine performed with and was the Assistant Artistic Director of Jubilee Dance Theatre (a South Florida based company). Claudine continues to make several guest artist appearances with various local dance companies and organizations. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Developing Dreams Foundation (formerly the Pablo Malco Foundation). Claudine is also a member of the Florida Dance Association and a (certified) member in the area of “Performing Arts (Ballet)” with Dance Educators of America. Claudine recently completed the two-week Horton Pedagogy program at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and annually attends the Finis Jhung Ballet Teacher’s Workshop. She is currently the Director of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Crime Laboratory – where they have nicknamed her the “Forensic Ballerina.” Despite her change in career path, she attributes many of her successes in life to lessons learned in “ballet class.” She shares this concept through her passion for the art of dance and has mentored many young dancers who have come to realize that you can have the best of both worlds; pursue a career and yet still maintain your passion for the arts.

Homeschooled from a young age, Sarah had the freedom to explore her interests fully. At the tender age of 8, Sarah discovered her profound connection to the world of dance, particularly ballet, igniting a flame that would burn brightly throughout her life..
At a crucial juncture in her ballet journey, Sarah attended a transformative Russian ballet seminar led by none other than former Ballet Nacional De Cuba soloists John White and Margarita De Saá. This experience expanded her horizons and fueled her determination to pursue excellence in ballet. Subsequently, she spent a summer at the Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet, refining her technique and immersing herself in the world of dance.
As she matured as a dancer, Sarah's passion for ballet evolved into a desire to share her knowledge and love for the art with others. Sarah's journey reached a pivotal turning point when she joined the Magda Auñon School of Classical Ballet. Here, she found a kindred spirit in Magda Auñon herself, a seasoned ballet master who recognized Sarah's potential and took her under her wing. Through Magda's guidance and that of many others, Sarah's understanding of classical ballet deepened, and she learned not only clean technique but also the essence and quality of the art form.
