Clara was born and raised in Santa Barbara and began dancing at Gustafson Dance at the age of two. Although she mainly performs ballet, she has also trained in contemporary, modern, and tap dance. She has danced in several of Gustafson Dance’s productions including Rudolph, The Nutcracker, Tina the Ballerina, Swan Lake, and many more. Clara has enjoyed helping in children’s ballet classes as a teacher’s assistant for several years. She is very excited to have the opportunity to teach at Gustafson Dance this year!
