Carol Abohatab brings four decades of performing, teaching, and choreographing to WGI, and has spent a significant amount of that time refining dance techniques, helping to make them a genuine and respected part of the pageantry world. Color guard prompted her to further explore dance, earning both BS and MFA degrees in Performance, Choreography, and Education. She then formed the Vanguard Dance Company, which allowed aspiring dancers in the color guard world to dance side-by-side with professionals.

Carol has studied with and performed in the works of Janice Garrett, Li Ciao Ping, Joe Goode, Alwin Nikolais, and Murray Louis, and has taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and in New York City. She currently teaches Modern, Jazz, Choreography, Repertory and Improvisation at San Jose City College, and Yoga and Pilates at Evergreen Valley College. With her solo endeavor, OpenSpacesDance, which is based on gesture and story telling, she has completed four artist- in-residence programs in Italy, returning this Fall to complete a site-specific video project for Slow Road, in conjunction with La Macina di San Cresci and the University of Florence.

Carol has been on the WGI Steering Committee since 2009, and has published a dance training video set available on wgi.org.
