She began her dance training at the Royal Ballet School in London at the age of eight, where she spent nine years. She made her professional debut with the Dutch National Ballet in September of 1980, where she danced for six years. She joined the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in 1988 as a second soloist and was promoted to first soloist the following year. Caroline retired from dancing in May of 2000. Since 2007 she has been teaching, coaching and setting repertoire in the Professional and Recreational Division of the RWB School. She also works extensively with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company, mainly assisting in the staging of classical repertoire such as Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
