When Dancing

Karl loves the shared experience of movement. Whether in a ballet class, improvising during creative process, or clapping during step touch at Dance Church, Karl thrives on the community dance creates. Witnessing transformation in himself and others keeps dance at the center of Karl’s life.

When not Dancing

In warmer weather, you can find Karl relaxing in his inflatable kayak on Lake Washington. Indoors, Karl has a passion for podcasts, the news, and all things streaming.
