Karen joined her sister at the local dance classes at the age of 3 and attended local dance competitions a few years later. Once again, from the support of both parents, Karen moved to a London based dance school ‘The Harfield Dance Studios’ run by Jilly Harris and Paul Streatfield, where Karen became a successful competitor throughout the Disco Freestyle circuit, reaching Championship status.
Her love for dancing led her on to Modern, Tap, Ballet, Rock’n’Roll, Latin American and Street dancing.
After retiring from the competition scene, Karen successfully passed her teaching exams in both Rock ‘n’ Roll and Disco/Freestyle. She is a member of the ISTD, ADFP an official Crew Member with Urban Funk and a Zumba® Fitness Instructor.
Her passion for dance is shown in her teaching and classes and she is looking forward to the day when those pupils that have been taught by NKB School of Dance, follow their dreams and become regular faces in the dance world.
