Elisabeth Carroll

Elisabeth Carroll was awarded a scholarship at the age of fourteen by Russian born Marika Besobrasova, who trained her exclusively for three years in Monte Carlo. Upon arrival in New York, Miss Carroll was immediately engaged by the American Ballet Theatre, where she rose to the rank of First Soloist while dancing leading roles. She was principal dancer with the Joffrey Ballet before joining the Harkness Ballet Company at its inception. As a ballerina of the company, she was acclaimed by New York dance critics as one of the best technicians of American ballet, a dancer of true individuality. She has done numerous national guest performances as well as television appearances. She became a permanent faculty member at the Harkness School for Ballet Arts, and since then has been coaching and training members of major companies. Miss Carroll is presently Associate Professor of Dance at Skidmore College.
