"Before she could walk, she was dancing" or so the story goes. As long as I can remember I have wanted to be onstage and I'm thrilled to be making a life of it. 

This year I will be making my Broadway DEBUT in ON YOUR FEET THE MUSICAL as the Dance Captain/ Swing. As an actor in New York City, I have been a part of two 1st National Tours, the Tony Award winning In the Heights (ensemble, u/s Nina, Vanessa, Carla) under the direction of Tommy Kail, music director Alex Lacamoire and choreographer Andy Blankenbeuhler. The production was a dream come true and was fully realized when I got to play Nina opposite Lin- Manuel Miranda, creator of the show and original Usnavi. The other tour is Flashdance the Musical where I started as the Dance Captain and understudy for the star role Alex Owens, and was then the Associate Choreographer under Sergio Trujillo for the 2nd National Tour! It has been quite a journey. Other favorite credits include a site specific Romeo and Juliet (Juliet), A Chorus Line (Diana Morales) at the Berkshire Theatre Festival, A Midsummer Night's Dream (Puck) and West Side Story (Francisca).

The desire to create my own work and surround myself with other like minded artists  ever-present. It was this impulse that led to DreamCatcher Theatre, an artist driven company which I cofounded alongside my brother, JJ Caruncho, in April 2014. The company, like this blog actually, will be a place to jump from. A place from which to create and be held responsible to making these thoughts, reality.
