Carina Ho is originally from New York City but now resides in Oakland, CA. Before sustaining an injury that put her in a wheelchair, she trained in ballet, contemporary, and belly dance. She has performed works by choreographers including Brenda Divelbliss, Kat Roman and Copious Dance Theater, as well as Brian Gibbs. She is excited to join AXIS Dance Company as an apprentice to continue her exploration of dance, even if it is with a disability.
"When I was first injured I thought I would never dance again. Having the opportunity to learn how to dance with my disability has opened my eyes to so many new possibilities. I'm excited to work with my fellow dancers and to share what we create with the world."
