Book Lesson

Trained early in tap and jazz, Karen began ballroom in 1997, performing the Copacabana, Wainwright House, and earning 1st & 2nd place in the 1998 Fred Astaire TriStar Dance Sport Championships added experience. For many years, she was invited to teach at the famous Stardust Dance Weekends.

In 2005 & 2006, Karen choreographed the presentation of The Cubist Works of Pablo Picasso (televised by News 12) at Yonkers International Baccalaureate World School and in 2009 Seniors Come Out Swinging held at Yonkers Public Library to a sold-out audience. In 2010, she choreographed a multi-generational dance program organized by the Health & Recreation Department for Lyndhurst, NJ.

With a passion for Argentine Tango, Karen earned her teacher’s certification in Nov 2012 from The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing Incorporated and along with her partner, Carlos Sampelayo, we were chosen as Sub-Champions of the 2013 US Tango Championship. Enjoying our partnership of many years, Carlos & Karen continue to teach social-level ballroom and Argentine Tango.

Her goal is getting students onto the dance floor quickly and with techniques they can be comfortable with regardless of age.
