EDS & Karen L. Enger


I believe fully in education and trying to better ones self and to learn somthing new every day.  I think this happened when I was living & training in the Chicago area.  I had the pleasure of meeting so many educators who taught me so much.  Even though I have degrees I didn’t necessarily want- I have fipped them to what I need to put them to excellent use.

So you may be wondering what exactly is my education other than that of what you’ve read in “About Dance”, seeing that I spent almost a decade of summer’s living in Chicago learning & training.

I have an Early Childhood Developement and Dance degree in which was trained in the Cecchetti Method  from Presentation College.  At NSU I was a tripple major in Elem. Edu (with a Middle School Endorsement), Biology & Physchology.

On top of my continueing education in Dance. I have continued my education by completing 3 Life Coaching Certifications as well as Certifications in NLP & CBT.  I also do specialized dance training every year.

My belief is that if you are not growing or changing then you are not learning how to do new things. I believe in growth be it in my own personal journy or the kids I teach.
