“Cara Lee is not just beautiful, she is a strong dancer with a great work ethic. She moves easily between elegant showgirl and hard hip hop. We would love to have her back at the Moulin Rouge!”
– Erik Sorensen, Choreographer at the Moulin Rouge

Cara Lee’s desire to be on stage started directly after her first tap class. Dancing was her first love. That very love has grown tremendously over the years and has resulted in a creating a talented performer and entertainer, with a true passion for the arts.

After 12 years of studio training, Cara Lee went on to train with The Source Dance Company for two years. Combining her technical skills, versatility and unique style, this training under Joanne Pesusich helped shape the dancer she is today. Cara Lee has trained with the Radio City Rockettes in NYC and has also trained extensively at renowned studios in Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris. She has worked with some of the best dancers and choreographers the Canadian dance world has to offer. Her dance styles include jazz, hip hop, contemporary, tap and ballet. 

Cara Lee began her professional career travelling the world as a performer with Carnival Cruise Lines. From there, she focused on keeping all doors open and seeking every opportunity in the entertainment industry, and seamlessly moved into the world of acting. She landed principal roles on Nickelodeon’s Rags, and CW’s Hellcats. She can also be seen on The X-Files, Witches of East End, Sucker Punch, Percy Jackson, and many more films, TV series and music videos.

Cara Lee was one of two Canadians chosen from the very first Canada-wide auditions to perform at the famous Moulin Rouge in Paris, France. She was thrilled for the opportunity to be trained in the famous French Cancan and live in such a city of culture. She describes The Moulin Rouge as ‘an experience of a lifetime’.

She shines when she gets to share her passion with others, whether it be teaching, adjudicating or choreographing across Canada. Outside of the entertainment industry she also loves teaching spin and barre fitness classes.

The world of performance represents living life to the fullest and never cutting yourself short. She can’t wait to see where it will take her next!
