Polaris Dance Company Apprentice
Caley Hernandez was born and raised in San Diego and began dancing seriously when she was eight, with The Dance Conservatory. At thirteen, she became the youngest member of La Diego 2, where she danced for one year under the direction of Daniel Marshall. Later, Caley found a new dance home at the Academy of Performing Arts where she earned a three year scholarship from APA’s owner and director, Kevin Charles Patterson. In 2014 Caley auditioned and received roles in San Diego Ballet’s Nutcracker production. She has also won awards in competitive dance for Showstoppers and Dance America, including an overall high score in the adult category. Her last performance in San Diego was as a company member of Visionary Dance Theatre. When not performing, Caley enjoyed teaching and choreographing for a number of studios while in California. She moved to Portland one year ago and is pleased to be a part of Polaris Dance Theatre and is looking forward to her second season with them! In addition to dancing, she is a full time student working toward her undergrad degree.
