Carol Dick
         
Carol

"Miss Carol" has danced since the age of three. Her mother, Mrs. Ray, was the founder of Mar Ray Dance Studio. Established in 1959, the studio was named after Carol's parents, Marge and Ray (Mar Ray). Carol took over the studio in 1971 while Mrs. Ray opened Mar Ray Costume Shop in Palatine. Carol and her husband, Bill, live in Lake Geneva; her children: Bill, Debbie, Tim and Melissa all live in the area. Carol loves having the fourth generation of dancers in her family at the studio; her grandaughters Kylie and Mia and grandson, Connor. Over the years it has been exciting to see students develop and grow as young dancers into young adults. We have many families with multiple generations of dancers.
