She graduated with a focus in Dance where she was an active member of the African Dance Ensemble. While getting her degree in Business Management from Abilene Christian University, Haley joined Dance Discovery Studio by Teri Wilkerson. She was a part of the DDS staff throughout her college years and also took a teaching residency at local elementary schools in the Abilene school district. She taught various forms of dance including hip hop, ballet, jazz, and African dance. Ms. Carter prides herself on teaching beyond the 8 count. As an instructor, she felt her responsibility was to not only teach the fundamentals of dance, but to instill in each student the importance of self discipline, confidence, respect, expression and creativity. “My goal is not simply to teach each child how to dance. My prayer is that once the music stops and the dance is complete, that each child will serve as a Light in this world, both on and off the stage.”
