WHAT PEOPLE ARE
"If you are a student of Musical Theatre living in the Denver area, there is no better resource than Caroline Younger. She is one of the best in the business and the Denver Community is lucky to have her as an educator for young lovers of the Musical Theatre Genre. Caroline is equally adept at teaching the Golden Age of Music Theatre and Contemporary MT Styles. She is a pioneer in the Pop/Rock genre of MT. Simply put - she is a brilliant artist. WABI is one of the best training grounds for MT anywhere in the US. When recruiting for my University, I 100 percent trust her recommendations."
Kevin Covert, Broadway Performer
Director of the Musical Theatre Program, Shenandoah Conservatory
"Shout out to WABI and Caroline Younger! I wanted to thank you for an amazing experience last weekend. You gave your students a real world, informative, supportive New York experience. Having current college theatre teachers and Broadway talent giving feedback was invaluable. The kids are so lucky to have you in their corner. An incredible talent onstage and now behind the scenes! Thank you!"
"Caroline Younger is an amalgam of so many things. From conventional musical theater performer to rock & roll goddess. Having worked with her both onstage and off, she brings an unexpected point of view to any project, helping to broaden the view for all involved. As a performer, she exhibits great passion and fire. As a teacher, she inspires one to live freely in the moment and be present to experience the now. Her varied life experiences add to her ability to take students on a journey of discovery. She is an invaluable teacher!"
Peter Gregus, Broadway Performer/Director
"My praise for Caroline and her program is sky-high. She is a creative, enthusiastic dance instructor. A brilliant choreographer. And a thoughtful and inspiring educator. My daughter has participated in many trainings throughout the Denver-area over the past 5 years and this is the best of the best. My daughter has fun in class, gets great exercise and she is learning that dance is something to love for a lifetime through Caroline’s example. But, she is also preparing herself for a rock solid future in musical theater should she want it. Sometimes, I do not think my daughter even notices this part because she is enjoying the moment so much. Learning and training is fun, as it should be."
"From the moment I first walked into a class that Caroline Younger was teaching, I knew, this was the teacher I had been looking for. She teaches with great technique, with body safety in mind, with character and with breath. Her passion for the art is palpable and her love for youth to succeed nonpareil.”
"Kevin Covert's workshop is a MUST for anyone who is planning to undergo the rigorous adventure of applying and auditioning to MT colleges. Both Kevin and Caroline have played essential roles in coaching, educating and supporting my daughter through this process. Not only are they experts and have invaluable advice and information, but they are both awesome mentors and people in general. My daughter did this Workshop last year and it is full of essential information!"
"WABI has been instrumental in growing my daughter's dance skills over the last few years. There is no other place in the Denver area focused on providing an environment for kids to be able to get their Musical Theatre dance training while they are still in High School and performing at school or around town. Caroline's skill and rapport with the students and her commitment to producing good dancers has made pursuing my daughter's dreams possible and has grown her confidence tremendously."
"WABI has been so important in developing my daughter's confidence, not only as a dancer, but also in all other areas of her other performance work. Caroline has helped my daughter establish a solid dance technique and has fostered a love of expressing herself through movement. My daughter looks forward to every dance class and has found confidence in her progress and hard work over time. Caroline's thoughtful training has also helped my daughter become more grounded and body-aware in her acting and vocal choices. The WABI environment is so encouraging and students feel confident taking risks, exploring new skills, and growing as individuals and as an ensemble. At WABI, my daughter has found a family of other theater-obsessed and supportive kids and a true mentor in Caroline. Thank you, WABI!"
"To say Caroline is a fantastic instructor does not do her justice. We have found no one else like her in the Denver area. Like other students who have turned to Caroline, my daughter never enjoyed dance until she joined WABI. Caroline's studio is a safe environment where the students gain a level of self confidence that can be hard to achieve. This is not only in their dance skills, but in an emotional aspect as well. My daughter has said that Caroline’s class has made her feel comfortable in her own skin and movement. This was incredibly moving to me! She is getting so much more than dance technique out of her time spent at WABI. Like many other young girls my daughter's age, she has talked about how she always criticized herself in the mirror because she didn’t look like all of the other girls at school. Yet, now, she can look at herself and see that she IS beautiful and she credits that to her time spent at WABI as well. I can’t say how much that means to me as a mother! We love Caroline and all of the teachers she brings into the classroom. We are so thankful to have her and her studio here in Denver!"
"My daughter not only learned advanced tap and ballet technique from Caroline, but also ancillary skills: what to expect during an audition, how to handle tough directors and choreographers, plus how dance, music and acting complement each other. My daughter has found new depths of confidence because of Caroline's tutelage, empowering her on and off the stage."
"Caroline is amazing, smart, creative, kind, a great dancer to a great choreographer and a wonderful teacher, not only to my daughter Madison whom she inspired and taught the love of dance and movement to and so many other things. But, Caroline also got me in a dance studio after many years of being a professional dancer. I can't thank her enough for her support and amazing classes."
"Caroline has taught me almost everything I know about dance. Everything from Fosse to ballet, and all styles related to musical theater. She has inspired me to pursue professional theater and prepared me for those auditions, as well as the possible rejections that come with them. I couldn't be where I am now with out her help and I truly think she has changed me for the better."
"Caroline Younger has been my dance instructor since I was 13. She saw the talent in me before I saw it in myself. She has always pushed me to be the best that I can be, not only as a performer but also as a human being. I can say with confidence that I am much more comfortable in my own skin since I met her. Her optimism and love for her students, her craft, and herself is truly inspiring. She has proven time and time again that being the most authentic version of yourself never goes out of style. Her motto has always been that there is beauty found in imperfection, and I've always loved this idea. Caroline truly is a wonderful role model in my life and I'm so grateful to have been one of her students."
