A longtime friend, Carole Jankowitz of Mahwah, who has been watching Carly dance since she was a kid, says, "Watching Carly mature into the dancer that she is today has been an exciting journey. She is a technically proficient dancer that never fails to wow me on stage. Off stage, she is a fabulous young lady with a tremendous heart and her passion for dance shines thru in all of her being. This journey is a long time goal of hers and I couldn’t be happier for her to have this opportunity to show America that She Knows She Can Dance! My entire family, co-workers at Bimini Bay Outfitters (where her mom Liz is a member of our team) and friends will be cheering her on as we are mesmerized by her performance this evening, and upcoming Wednesday nights as well."
