Jamie Carnahan


Ms. Jamie- Our Head Dance Teacher and Junior Company Teacher

Jamie is a mother of two girls who moved back to her hometown of Dundalk in 2017 after 15 years in Montgomery County. She was introduced to dance by her aunt at the age of 3 and it was instant love! She danced for 14 years at recreation councils across Baltimore county, competed, and spent several years assistant teaching during and post- high school.

Dance found a new place in her life in her twenties as she participated in a small theater group that put on an annual New Years Eve play. Eventually she took over choreography for this theater group, teaching adults of all skill levels how to have fun through dance! Her hope was to always find an outlet for her passion for dance.

When the time came to move back to Dundalk, it was a pleasant surprise to reconnect with her childhood friend and fellow dancer. It was the perfect time for Jamie to take the next step and start teaching children again at the recreation council she once danced with, at the invitation of her friend. It was a joy and privilege to spend the 2017-2018 year teaching dance with the Kingsville Recreation Council. 

Currently, Jamie spends her days as a nanny and caretaker for her grandmother and she is SUPER EXCITED to join the Bear Creek Dance family as a teacher this year! She can't wait to meet her new students and their families right in her own neighborhood. She's looking forward to a fun and fabulous dance year!
