Choreographer

This past summer Karla set original choreography for VA Repertory’s production of IN THE HEIGHTS. She is currently nominated for a Richmond Theatre Critics Award for her work. Check out the b-roll below! Last fall, Karla choreographed Hamilton’s 2016 Gypsy of the Year piece, which won top honors that night for Best Presentation (also see below)! She was later invited to set the same piece at the First Annual Artists Rise Up LA event in California.

Karla combines her technical foundation in modern, jazz, and ballet with different textures of musical theatre, contemporary, and hip hop. Inspired by the greats Jerome Robbins and Bob Fosse, she emphasizes the value of strength, musicality, storytelling, and honesty in a performance. Karla has choreographed music videos for artists THE KNOCKS (featuring Matthew Koma), GABI, and KINDNESS. Her choreography for KINDNESS received rave reviews and was praised as “infectious” by chartattack.com. Her work has also been performed at the NY Jazz Choreography Project, Katie’s Project, Leg Up On Life, Human Rights Festival, BC Beat, Jared Grimes’ Broadway Underground, and more. Her short film “The Backroom” was featured on Danceplug.com and Broadwayworld.com. Her latest short film “The Spot” (directed by Ted Ely) has been accepted into three National Film Festivals. Stay tuned for the release!
