“Let dance transform you into the best version of yourself.”
Born in Mexico, Karla moved to Austin at the young age of two years old. She first found her love for dance at an early age as she was always surrounded by Latin dancing at family gatherings. Growing up, she continued to pursue her dream of dance through school programs where she danced Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, and Hip Hop. In 2017, she began taking Salsa lessons here at Go Dance, and soon after joined the Va Bailar performance team. After realizing how important dance was in her life, she decided to pursue a lifelong career and share her love for dance with others.
Karla believes that her journey of learning partner dancing as an adult helps her understand and connect with her students. Her advice to newcomers is to not overthink it; everyone has to go through being a beginner to find their own unique way of shining. She loves working with students who aren’t quite sure what they are looking for when they first come in and helping them find their path.
Off the dance floor, you’ll find Karla outdoors running, hiking, and connecting with nature. She loves to explore the beautiful city of Austin and is always looking to take on an adventure.
