Karis was training at the Royal Ballet school at the age of six and was performing with the English National Ballet before the age of ten.
She has pirouetted on every major London stage including the Royal Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, National Theatre, The Lyceum, The Coliseum & The Royal Festival Hall and worked and trained alongside some of the biggest names in the industry including Darcey Bussell, Carlos Acosta, Tamara Rojo and Sergei Polunin.
Karis was severely injured in the later stages of her training so retired at a young age to have the best chance of rehabilitating her body and mind. She decided to pass on the wisdom of having to re-learn how to move like a dancer again after her injury.
Karis is a passionate, enthusiastic, precise and very patient teacher. Ballet is a vigorously disciplined art form, which demands the highest degrees of fitness, skill, grace & mental focus within the dance or fitness industry.
It is also an incredible source of self-expression, so Karis applies meditation and mindfulness into every session. Her classes are uplifting, positive and confidence boosting with a subtle underlying ethos of self-mastery throughout.
Bodyism embodies everything I consider to be important about living a healthy and happy life. It provides me with an inspirational foundation from which I can nurture clients and feel proud to be a part of such an authentic, professional and creative family.
Karis is effortlessly graceful, elegant and truly caring. She is in such high demand and is so well regarded and much loved within Bodyism. Ballet with Karis is a form of meditation through movement; it will change your life.
