Bio content provided by individual
Karla Puno Garcia is a NYC based performer, choreographer, and educator. She has worked in television, film, on international/national tours, and on Broadway - most recently in Hamilton: An American Musical.
Originally from Oxon Hill, MD, her first professional gig was at 12 years old with Debbie Allen and James Ingram in Allen's Kennedy Center production of Brothers of the Knight. She got the bug and moved to the Big Apple!
Karla's theater class explores real life experiences through rhythmic and groovy movement! Warm-up is Jazz/Ballet-based. The energy continues with across-the-floor exercising rhythm, coordination, and musicality.
Class combos pay homage to musical theater pioneers like Jack Cole, Jerome Robbins, and Bob Fosse while adding a modern-day edge. The choreography is always structured by a situation or circumstance, and students are encouraged to bring their own uniqueness in their storytelling.
Music ranges from rock/blues to electronic swing to traditional and current Broadway songs.
