Join ARENA DANCES for our weekly Studio Stories Podcast, where each week we reminisce on Twin Cities dance history with a new special guest. This week, we sat down with Karla Grotting to learn about her journey.
Karla Grotting is a dancer, choreographer, educator and producer working with a unique blend of jazz, tap, modern, theater, and percussive dance techniques. Since 1990, she has been a founding member, principal dancer, and artistic associate with Joe Chvala’s The Flying Foot Forum. Karla has performed and toured with Jazzdance: by Danny Buraczeski, MN Jazz Dance Co, Keane Sense of Rhythm, and dance/theater companies Off-Leash Area and Combustible Company. She is also on faculty at the University of Minnesota Department of Theater and Dance, and has been a visiting guest teaching/choreography artist at many others. Karla has been named as one of City Pages’ Artists of the Year.
Studio Stories will air each Thursday at noon with new guests joining the host to reminisce and share their memories and history with our dance scene.
