Karen has been teaching and choreographing for over 30 years. She grew up in Hamburg, NY and has studied and performed with many local teachers and groups, most notably with master teachers Ginger Burke and Tom Ralabate. Karen owned a dance studio in Hamburg, worked as a Teaching Artist for the WNY Arts in Education program, and went on to teach and choreograph at several local dance studios. She is proud that many of my students have gone on to professional careers in dance. She is thrilled and honored to be rejoining the Dance Spectrum family!
