Caroline Fahy

Caroline Fahy T.C.R.G  

Caroline Fahy was born in Birmingham to Irish parents and showed a keen interest in Irish dancing from an early age.
After watching an exhibition of Irish dancing Caroline begged her parents to take her along to lessons and at 4yrs of age she joined the Kidd School of Irish dancing in Birmingham.

Caroline enjoyed her competitive career as an Irish dancer and was very dedicated to her ceili and team dances as well as her solos, she went on to win many Regional and National titles throughout her years in competition.

At the age of 17 and was studying for her A levels when she received a call from Micheal Flatley's Lord of The Dance asking her to join them on a world tour. Faced with this difficult decision Caroline realised that she must take this once in a lifetime opportunity and so began her journey with Lord of the Dance.

It was not long before Caroline was asked to audition for the lead role of Morrighan and after a successful audition Caroline went on to perform this role for the next 13 years in the show, continually helping understudies to perfect the role along the way.

Caroline is one of the only dancers to have performed both lead roles in the show. Whilst on tour in Japan the female lead who performed the role of Saoirse became injured and had to withdraw from the tour, Caroline with just a few hours notice was ready to switch roles and take on the part of Saoirse .

After a year with the show Caroline was appointed the role of dance captain. Whilst in this role Caroline helped to co ordinate many outstanding performances, one very prestigious performance springs to mind in Hyde Park where the troupe performed to an audience of 50,000.

In 2010 Caroline passed her T.C.R.G and has had the pleasure of teaching at The Carey Academy ever since.

" I feel very lucky to teach such young talent and to work alongside such truly inspiring teachers "
