Karina Rodriguez is a British born-again dance enthusiast. After years of ballet, tap and modern as a child, she concentrated on enjoying dance from the screen or sidelines for many years before recommencing tap again several years ago in her current home – Stockholm, Sweden.

Through reconnecting with dance and dancers she has learned so many things about life and loves to share the joy of dance with others. Nothing makes her happier than seeing someone stop caring about how they look and just move for the sheer joy of it!
