About Karla Garcia

Karla Puno Garcia is a NYC based performer, choreographer, and educator. She has worked in television, film, on international/national tours, and on Broadway. Her most recent endeavor is in Hamilton: An American Musical. Her first professional gig was at 12 years old with Debbie Allen and James Ingram in Allen’s Kennedy Center production of Brothers of the Knight. She got the bug and moved to the Big Apple!

Karla is inspired by the great Jerome Robbins and Bob Fosse and combines her technical foundations with different textures of musical theater, contemporary, and hip-hop. She appreciates the uniqueness of each dancer and encourages students to take ownership of their individuality and overall sense of artistic self. (Bio from BDC)
