Carolyn Kelemen followed James Rouse's dream to Columbia in 1970 and has been writing about local artists for newspapers, magazines, and online ever since. She earned her MFA in dance at Mills College after a long career of performing on stage, in films, and on TV throughout the East Coast. Besides teaching dance at Goucher College and Howard Community College, she formed the Interfaith Housing Ballet Troupe at Slayton House and staged one of the New City's first dance benefits at Merriweather Post Pavilion. In 1999 she won a Howie Award for her support of the arts, and in 2006 she was inducted into the Howard County Women's Hall of Fame for her efforts on behalf of "Columbia Cares," a benefit for people living with HIV/AIDS. The 2017 benefit, "Dancing For Divas," honored Columbia women in the arts. She is the co=producer of "Razzle Dazzle" radio on the HCC Dragon Radio podcasts that showcases local artists.
