Carla Cordero Wuthrich grew up in a home filled with music and dance. She obtained her training at the School of American Ballet in New York City and at the American Ballet Academy under the direction of Carol Sumner. Carla became a member of the professional company at a young age, dancing soloist roles in Balanchine’s /Western Symphony/, /Steadfast Tin Soldier/, and /Valse Fantasie/, to name a few.

Ms. Wuthrich then pursued an engineering degree at Cornell University. She continued to feed her passion for dance as director, choreographer and dancer for the Cornell dance company. While working as an engineer for IBM in New York, she danced for two regional companies and was commissioned for her contemporary and classical choreography. She has had the opportunity to train as student and teacher in classical ballet, modern, jazz and character dance. One can find elements of the many disciplines of dance and engineering in her teaching and choreography.

In 1997, she moved to Vermont, worked with the University of Vermont’s dance program and found a home at the Vermont Ballet Theater School. She lives in Hinesburg, VT with her husband, Ryan and her two young boys. She enjoys solving the multi-dimensional puzzles of music, movement and space and strives to make something exciting and significant happen for those in the audience and those on stage.
