Cara Shear graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Dance from Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) in Nacogdoches, TX in December 2016. While at SFA, she performed as a member of the Repertory Dance Company and Dimensions Contemporary Ballet, was the Fundraising Coordinator for SFA Dancers Against Cancer, and was a Creative Movement and Jazz/Contemporary instructor at the Gobel School of Dance. Shear was thrilled to be on scholarship during the College/Pro Intensive at Gus Giordano Dance School in 2016. She loved Chicago while she was on scholarship and decided to move to the city. Her first year in Chicago, she performed with Tiffany Lawson Dance in their 5th season, and traveled to New York to expand her knowledge and love for Limón Modern dance technique. Shear is very grateful for the opportunity to teach, assist and learn from the Directors and Master teachers more about Gus and his Legacy every day.
