Karen Maria is thrilled to be part of the North Shore Music Theatre family.  She began her singing and dancing career with her favorite teacher, Mom!  Karen went on to become the Dance Captain and a performer in the National Touring Company of A CHORUS LINE under the direction of Michael Bennett; other professional credits include:  GYPSY, DAMES AT SEA, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, and STOP THE WORLD! I WANT TO GET OFF.

As Artistic Director of the NATIONAL DANCE INSTITUTE/NEW ENGLAND with Jacques D'Amboise of the N.Y.C. Ballet, she worked with 500 Boston area school children choreographing their EVENT OF THE YEAR and their television spot on Channel 4's KIDSFAIR.  Her T.V. credits do not stop there, however.  As well as choreographing commercials for MediaOne, she was dance captain on the special BARYSHNIKOV ON BROADWAY starring Liza Minnelli and Mikail Baryshnikov.

Karen Maria's past credits include thirty-one years as choreographer for the Hasty Pudding Theatricals and the special event at Harvard's 350th celebration.  She has even assembled some of her favorite Hasty Pudding Alumni and choreographed the Jack Lemmon segment of the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C.

Karen Maria has a Master of Education degree and has traveled to every major city in the United States teaching Master Dance Classes.  She has been on the faculty of both the Boston Ballet and Harvard University's Summer Dance Programs, and has given choreography seminars to the faculty of the NEW ENGLAND SHOW CHOIR CAMP held at M.I.T.  Previously, she was the Artistic Director for the GREAT WOODS EDUCATIONAL FORUM. 

'Creativity through discipline' is the philosophy and technique that drives the excitement in her classes!


TESTIMONIALS

"If you love to sing, dance and act, then I would highly recommend taking the Theatre Arts  Week camp!  It's tons of fun and you meet new friends.  Best of all, you learn how to become your own Broadway Star!"

- Brianna, Age 9

 

"The educational theater programs at North Shore Music Theatre are fun, challenging, and rewarding. During my time at Theatre Arts Week and the Triple Threat classes, the teacher created a comfortable, enjoyable environment that allowed me to take risks and try new things. I was given individual attention according to my skill level and was able to work at my own pace. I came out of the programs with new skills and confidence in my vocal, dance, and acting performance."

- Morgan, Age 17

 

"My daughter has attended several summer music camps and Theatre Arts Week at NSMT is by far the best thing going!!   If your child dreams of being a "Broadway Star"...this camp is a must!  It's the real deal, taught by Broadway Professionals!   Any child who likes to sing, dance or act will have the time of their life at Theatre Arts Week!   They will gain friendships and confidence while learning performance techniques.  It's a taste of Broadway right here in New England!"

- Heather Benkley,  Parent of camper, former professional actress with Theater Under the Stars, Houston TX
