Photos of the Month - March 2019
Although we LOVE all of our participants at I LOVE DANCE, we select a few to highlight each and every month.

Additionally, we LOVE meeting Celebrities and people whose achievements and creativity qualifies them for special recognition.

We hope you'll check each month to see who we feature -- all deserving a huge round of applause!

BRAVO and THANK YOU to those whom we are delighted to show our extra appreciation...

    Karissa Dean with Kim McKimmie

    Karissa Dean has been dancing since the age of three. She went on to college and continued dancing at Western Oregon University, becoming captain & choreographer of the Western Dance Team. Karissa took her dance degree back to Portland and started working right away. She joined Kinetic Images, a modern dance company and started teaching at Tualatin Dance Center and Spotlight Performing Arts.

    In addition to her studio work, Karissa has coached and choreographed for many local High School dance teams, as well as judging for OSAA/JA. Karissa is a current member with AL Dancers, a modern dance company in Portland, Oregon. Focusing on continuing her education, Karissa has participated in multiple intensives and workshops, her favorites being Paul Taylor and the Dance Teacher Summit in New York City. A highlight of her dancing career is participating in the 100 year anniversary of Nijinsky “Rite of Spring” with AL Dancers. She has had the opportunity to perform throughout the US and Mexico and was actually just in Argentina last month - doing the Tango for sure!

    Karissa is currently the Education Director for Judges in Oregon and the Head Coach at Benson High School. She is a Certified NDA Judge and continues to pursue other judging certifications. Last season, Karissa judged ILD in both Billings and Los Angeles where the competitors loved her! This season, she will be in a few more cities as both a CELEBRITY guest judge and Show Manager for I LOVE DANCE during our 41st season.
