PHI Event Centre Tap Water Jam Houseto Jazz Lady C


Known internationally as Lady C, Caroline Fraser is widely recognized as one of the strongest female dancers in the global Street Dance community. While her main focus in Street Dance has become the centre of her unique and captivating style, her beginnings as a classically trained dancer in Calgary, Alberta and her current involvement with Holla Jazz Dance Company contribute to her diverse skill set and wide range of vocabulary. Caroline’s ability to move seamlessly between multiple genres gained attention and accolades from audiences and connoisseurs and she quickly created a name for herself around the globe traveling, teaching, judging, and performing. Caroline has simultaneously had a successful career as a songwriter and recording artist under the same pseudonym Lady C and has multiple releases on all music platforms.
