Karen Coleman

Tap Teacher

Karen Coleman has been teaching tap since 2008 and has enjoyed every minute of it. She spent her earlier years as a dancer/singer/actress and has traveled the country performing professionally. She earned her Equity card in NY and after many years of working on and off stage she returned to San Diego. She learned to tap at San Diego Dance Center under Miss Sharon, and Broadway Dance Center and Steps in NYC. 

Karen teaches the basics, rhythm, musical theatre and standard styles. She believes that tapping is an instrument and that you need to make music with your feet.  She has 3 girls and they all study dance at PADC. When Karen is not teaching, she is in the audience enjoying a great show!  “Come on over to PADC and flap to me, however, please, stay off your heels...”
