English born and raised in Australia, Karen has over thirty years experience in competitive dancing. Before retiring as the undefeated U.S. "American Style" champion and the undefeated Canadian "American Ballroom" and "Showdance" champion, she garnered over 250 titles worldwide.

She has performed in the presence of HRH Princess Margaret in Covent Garden, in the National tour of "Burn the Floor" and in the feature film "Dance With Me". She also trained Richard Gere for "Shall We Dance" and you can see her in the Dancesport series on PBS. She co-created, choreographed, directed and toured a stage production called "Let's Dance the Night Away" which made ninety-seven appearances touring Australia, and has traveled globally for performances, seminars and coaching.

Karen is a certified adjudicator in International Standard, Latin American, American Ballroom, Rhythm, Theatre Arts and Showdance, and is a member of the National Dance Council of America, Terpsichore, Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, New York Wedding Group, and the ABWA. 

Karen has also embarked on a number of independent ventures including raising money for the Autistic Children's Association in New South Wales, Australia, sponsoring twelve months of dance lessons for a nine year old from a low-income family, and volunteering with the Art of Living Foundation.  Her dedication and work earned her the unanimous vote for the 2005 Woman of the Year Award from the American Business Women's Association.

Karen combines her ballroom expertise with a holistic movement sensibility and a playful spirit to encourage confidence and build a foundation for movement skills. Her work has expanded to "life training" which encompasses bodywork techniques and practices of yoga, breathing techniques, qi gong and chakra tai chi.
