SHUFFLES Company Member and Studio Member Caroline Cahill is graduating from the Professional Children’s School and then will pursue a double degree at Columbia University and Barnard College in their 5 year joint intra-university program at the School of International and Public Affairs, earning a combined bachelors degree and masters degree from Columbia University.
Caroline will miss her SHUFFLES family!
“Everyone at SHUFFLES believes in me, and that has really nurtured my confidence as I’ve grown with those around me.”
Caroline’s favorite SHUFFLES performances are either “Jet Set” in Meet Me At the Plaza or “Dancing Through Life” in No Place Like Home, as both were exhilarating for her to perform.
Caroline’s favorite SHUFFLES memory was when one of the Little Indians in PETER PANtomime gave her a drawing of herself as Tiger Lily.
“I’ll never forget the shy, yet proud look on her face as she handed me that paper!”
Caroline also mentions that she learned leadership skills by helping with the younger kids in PETER PANtomime when she was Tiger Lily and Nana.
At age 16, Caroline is the youngest to ever graduate from SHUFFLES.
“Since I’m on the younger side, I’m still open minded as to what I want to do with my life and I’m excited to explore more in college.”
When Caroline is not at SHUFFLES, she can be found baking, swimming or doing schoolwork.
She mentions that her inspirations are the wonderful SHUFFLES teachers who have taught her so much over the past nine years!
We will miss you, Caroline, and wish you all the very best!
