Over the past year there is no doubt that local talent Carley Cofield has leaped mountains in her dance career.

Most recently she was seen on national television dancing for pop-rock group Hedley at the 2014 Much Music Video Awards.

Since then, Carley was cast to dance for Deborah Cox for World Pride 2014 held in Toronto this summer. Cox, who has 12 number-one hits on the Billboards charts, was asked to headline this event. She gave a remarkable show with only 10 dancers who performed a 55-minute set for the artist.

“I was honoured to share the stage with such talent, Deborah’s voice gave me goose bumps on stage,” said Cofield.

Cox will be the voice in Lifetime’s upcoming Whitney Houston movie set to premiere next year.

Cofield continued to keep the ball rolling after World Pride, and went on to book the official performance for the one-year (countdown) launch of the 2015 Pan American Games. Cofield was grateful for the opportunity, and performed a 10-minute set for Toronto’s most elite choreographer Scott Fordham at the event.

After a busy year in the city, Carley is excited to be back in the Valley and giving back to her community this summer. She will be teaching all across the Island, and can’t wait to see some west coast talent!
