Instructor at Studio Revolution

Hi, I'm Karleen.

Without even realizing it, the love for being active has always been a common theme in my life. I started dancing at a very young age — so young, my mom always said I was dancing in the womb. Naturally, when it came time to find an extracurricular for me, my parents put me in dance at the tender age of 5. Since then I had fallen in love with everything about it: music, movement, rhythm, precision, competition, and of course getting to dress up in costume, hair, and make up. I was hooked on competitive dancing throughout junior high and high school and spent all my free time at the studio. Once in my teens, I had discovered and explored the world of sports, while still maintaining a love of the performing arts. Straight out of high school I began to teach dance to children and young adults through community youth programs, gradually evolving to pioneer the dance program and teach at my alma mater Bishop Grandin High School.

After finishing my BA in Psychology with distinction from the University of Calgary and spending years in the fashion retail management industry, the love for being constantly active could no longer be ignored. Upon discovering SURFSET at Studio Revolution, I was instantly hooked — it was unlike anything I had ever done, and immediately became a huge challenge way out of my comfort zone that I really wanted to conquer! I am thrilled to now be apart of the Studio Revolution team as an instructor and cannot wait to share the love of challenge, sweat, and most of all, fun with our amazing city.

“The universe tells us we are exactly where we need to be.”

When I am not sweating in the studio, or inflicting sweat upon others, i am…

I am reading blogs… i.e. looking at pretty pictures, shopping & styling sweat-to-street looks, sweating in a hot yoga or spin class, sipping a cappuccino or cold-pressed juice, catching up on shameless reality TV (yea, I’ll admit it), getting lost in soundcloud, or having raging dance parties for 1 in my car.
