A recent Colorado transplant from Minnesota, she attended Gustavus Adolphus College where she earned a Bachelors Degree in Psychological Science and a minor in Dance. While living in the Twin Cities, she performed and danced with a women-led professional modern dance company, One Dance, where she is still an active member from a distance.

Caroline Alford

  Member and Dancer Advocate

  My name is Emlia Caroline Alford. I respond equally to both names. It is an honor to be part of
Dance Express. I grew up in a family life firmly based on the arts, whether visual or performative. My father had
a high-end advertising agency in Chicago. Because of this, I can help create appealing visuals
for this company. I have also maintained relationships with people in the advertising field,
which would be helpful.
As for the performative end of the arts, I was young in a dance company that taught circus
arts. I was also a violinist. I cannot remember a time when I was not a dancer, musician, or
actor on a stage. As for the visual arts, my passion is all about fiber. All in all, anything tactile appeals to me.
The most significant thing I was taught as a child was to be useful. This was stressed outside
of employment. Hence, I have been volunteering for as long as I can remember. 

“ Regarding Dance Express, I am acutely aware of the complexities of teaching the necessary skills for performance. My second child is no different. We hear the music in the house or the car and dance our hearts out. I cannot think of anything more profound than creating art simply for its intrinsic worth. Always and forever, make art and be kind"
