“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
– Émile Zola

Karly started dancing at the age of five and dance has become her passion ever since. She finished her RAD Advanced 2 Ballet Exam and is a former Miss Dance Titleholder. She is a versatile dancer who has heavily trained both competitively and professionally in ballet, tap, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, house, waacking, latin, modern, and jazz funk. Her professional career started as an assistant to Breanne Wasylenko and Caroline Torti, as well as for their company Collective Elite Entertainment.

Working with such passionate and talented dancers and choreographers in Toronto has inspired her to train in all styles and gain experience in all avenues of the dance industry. Karly can be seen dancing in various TV/Film roles for networks including Disney, Netflix, YTV Nickelodeon, and Slice Televison. She has recently performed in “Fame” La Comédie Musicale with Just For Laugh’s company as a triple threat (dancing, singing, and acting) choreographed by Steve Bolton. Karly has performed for Blake McGrath in the “I am Blake McGrath” Promo Tour, “Aja 9’ for Radio Disney, and was a lead dancer in “Really Big World” in concert. Karly has trained extensively with Apolonia Velasquez and Ofilio Portillo, and has had the opportunity to perform and tour with their company, “Gadfly.” She has taken part in the Girls Club training program under Tamina Pollock Paris, as well as Shavar Blackwood’s professional training program Eye Candy/The Male Initiative.

Karly has had the opportunity to dance in Christina Digiuseppe’s piece in the 2015 Long Beach Capezio Ace Awards, and both of Transcendance Company’s productions of “Eve of St.George.” Karly has also performed in Shavar Blackwood’s production of Euphoria and The TMI 5 Year Anniversary Gala, World of Dance Toronto, Hit The Floor, On The Floor Sick Kids Gala, Scott Fordham’s productions of “Limitless,” as well as Toronto Original Choreographer’s Ball, and Fever after Dark.

Her passion and determination is what motivates her as she continues to persevere to pursue all of her goals.
