CARRIE COUCH

A native Atlantan, Carrie trained in dance at the University of Georgia where she earned a BS.Ed in Dance Education. Upon graduation, she followed her dreams to Los Angeles. In her seven years in Tinseltown, Carrie taught at the renowned International Dance Academy in Hollywood while performing both on stage and screen. Living in an entertainment mecca awarded her the opportunity to venture into marketing and promotions for large corporate events while pursuing her artistry. This is where her love of event production blossomed.

Carrie returned home to Atlanta to fully submerge herself in the hospitality and entertainment industry as part of the opening team for Whiskey Park and Whiskey Blue. In tandem with performing in corporate events and industrials, she later shifted in the events industry as an agent and producer.

With her passion deeply rooted in the arts, Carrie possesses the ability to creatively collaborate with clients to fully understand and execute their vision. She continues to support local and touring acts as both a patron and performer. You might even catch her twisting balloons or high-kicking at your next event.
