Karen Marie Lyon

I am a Freelance Dance Teacher/ Choreographer based in Walsall. but have worked in over 100  Primary and Secondary schools across West Midlands, including Birmingham, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and Coventry for over 8 years. Some of the schools I have worked at are ‘High Clare’ both Primary and Secondary, The Shrubbery, Fairfax, ‘Little Sutton Primary school’ & Edgbaston high school for Girls’…… to name a few.

Not only do I teach Dance but I also teach Drama and Singing/ Music I suppose you could say I was an all rounder.

I have been performing since the age of four and have been a member of many Amateur Dramatic societies not only do i tread the boards but i have also worked as part of the production team, whether it being a director or Choreographing for Spotlight Youth Productions, Aldridge Musical Comedy Society and Great Wyrley Musical Society & Walsall Gilbert & Sullivan Society

I hope to pass on my love and enthusiasm to both children and adults alike when teaching and watch them develop their performance and Confidence.
