Caryn Carrasco

Caryn Carrasco has seen firsthand the bonds that social dance can build. Her parents met while dancing at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom in 1955, and she has spent her life meeting new faces and forming relationships through dances like tango, swing, and blues. The art form has proven so meaningful to Carrasco that she considers it “better than life insurance, "because you'll never be alone, you'll always be in good shape, and you'll always have friends.”
As the founder of CMDance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to sharing the magic of dance to the Colorado community and beyond, Caryn also leads Hot Night Fusion, a monthly dance event that blends Argentine tango and blues dancing.
