Carli received her BFA in Dance from the University of Utah and has over 20 years of experience as a teacher, dancer and choreographer. She is one of the founding members of Trillium Performing Arts Collective and teaches dance technique as a vehicle for self expression.

About Trillium Youth Ensemble
formerly Trillium Performing Youth

Trillium Performing Youth, founded in 1997, continues to be one of our most successful endeavors. Trillium Performing Youth aims to nurture and further hone the skills of students who have demonstrated promise and talent in the art of dance. Many of our TPY students have been accepted into professional dance programs.

Towards the end of the school season, TPY students tour local schools and senior residences to inspire the community with the fruitful outcomes of their hard work and diligence.

TPY Students also display their progress during the Trillium Performing Youth Showcase near the end of each season. The TPY Showcase is open to the public, and all proceeds from event sales benefit the TPY scholarship fund.

TrilliumYouth Ensemble will continue the TPY tradition of reaching out to the community and advancing the skills of the students.


The Ensemble will include Musical Theatre, Jazz, Modern Dance and Contemporary Ballet.
