Dance Classes With Karen


         After almost 5 decades of teaching in person dance classes, performing, and choreographing in the Midwest and Southwestern U.S.A., I'm beyond excited to embark on a new chapter teaching Turkish-Egyptian/Middle Eastern inspired dance classes virtually to students across the country and the world. 

        Would you like to join me? 



"Karen is addicting! I continue to sign up for her classes again and again!"

Dex, Young Professional

“Sometimes just being with the positivity of women can make you feel stronger. Karen has always had a particular power to lift me up!”

"Karen makes class fun with her positive energy and

not only instructs her students

but makes her class into a family."


Michele, College Student

"Karen's encouragement, wisdom, knowledge about physical and mental health, and positive outlook have stayed with me through the years and helped me in my  quest to become a better person. I have to say there has never been a fitness class or instructor that has affected me more." 


Lisa, Graphic Artist
