Meet Karen Klassen
Like many before her, Karen Klassen came to Williams Lake to escape the congestion and pollution of city living. She was in search of something with more space and a whole lot of heart and soul; a place where the people are connected. Her search ended as she discovered the Cariboo region was exactly what she had been looking for. The abundant lake access, along with the host of campgrounds and outdoor activities in the area are equally as enticing.
Karen loves knowing so many residents; the familiarity with a friendly face is both calming and revitalizing. As an entrepreneur, she knows that it is the interpersonal connections that build a business’ traffic flow. Through positive word of mouth, Karen hopes to spread her love of dance and music with the entire community.
Some of Karen’s most prized achievements have been facilitating her dance student’s success. She truly enjoys guiding people to that moment where suddenly the steps and rhythm all come together with ease. “I love meeting people of all ages and kinds, and teaching them to dance in ways they’d never thought they would be able to,” declares the dance instructor. “I want to share my strengths and love of music and dance styles from around the world!”
