I have studied various forms of dance for close to 20yrs: dunham, modern, ballet and now fusion belly dance. I have taught and performed in the England, Ireland and Scotland. I dance under the name Piper and my goal for my students is simple: be at their best and always be confident!

    "I have been dancing with Karen for 5+ years. As a soloist & troupe member the most consistant comments I receive are for posture & arm placement. Karen is the perfect teacher for the mature dancer, teaching us the proper muslces to use, the posture, the stage presence. Her enthusiasm is contagious, you can't help but smile through class. She encourages us to take work shops, and to bring to class anything that interests us. An open and warmer person will be hard to find. Please look her up and take a class or two with us. She'd love to have new students, and her students love to have new troupe members. Hope to see new faces soon!"

    "I started taking dance instruction from Karen a few months ago.
    Karen’s technique training is superb, and her knowledge of the
    dance forms she teaches enlightening.
    She is organized, has good communication with her students,
    is timely, and energetic. Thank you Karen! and I look forward to
    continuing to study with you.
