Karm A.

Mattapan, MA

I have been teaching for 4 years.
Work with me and I will help you develop your musical hearing, your rhythm, your sense of self and the true artist hidden inside of you. I don't believe in "I can't" if someone like you can do it, so can you with practice, the right tools and dedication.

I teach using techniques from great dancers, Lester Horton, Marta Graham, Asadata Dafora etc..., connecting musically and emotionally.
my philosophy? Dance is my religion

About Karm

Hello
My name is Karm and I am so excited to start that new adventure with you.
I have been teaching performing arts for 4 years, I believe in connecting with performance of any type (acting, dancing) once that connection is established you become the art. Expressing emotions and sense of self is what I encourage.

I Started dancing as soon as I could walk considering my family was into the arts. I studied dance first in Haiti at Joelle Donatien belot dance school. Later when I moved to the United States, I continued my training at Pine Manor College where I earned a minor in dance. At th
at time I also joined Dance Ensemble which was a student professional dance team.
Today I owned KS Dance studio where I teach classes to all ages. I continue my training every week at the Boston ballet and at the Dance Complex. Occasionally I travel to NY for more training at the Alvin Ailey dance school.

Marina F.

Roxbury Crossing, MA

I firmly believe that there is no right way to move. Dance is an intensely personal medium, and that vitality must come from within. With that in mind, I teach with a focus on learning how to claim movement and fit it onto your own body.

About Marina

I'm currently a double major in Math and English at Connecticut College. I attended Concord Academy for high school, focusing in dance and engineering. That's also where I was first exposed to teaching, working as an assistant to my dance instructor there. Since then, I've worked in a musical theatre summer camp in Aruba, been a drop-in tutor at my public library, and worked in my school's Academic Resource Center. I look forward to meeting, and working with, you.
