"I love her musicality and how she personally connects with us - the adults in her class. I like that she is firm with the kids but also inspiring."

I love coming to class, it's always challenging, but Kara is always patient and willing to explain and re-explain if needed.

Dedicated to students and ballet.

Kara makes all classes super fun and never lets anyone get frustrated. No matter what the issue is you feel you're facing, Kara will help knock it aside by any means necessary.
