Kari Shaw

Kari Shaw, ‘05
OCU Ann Lacy School of Dance and Entertainment

Kari Shaw joined Oklahoma City University faculty in the Fall of 2001; she currently instructs Tap and Jazz Technique classes and a variety of choreography and pedagogy classes geared toward the American Dance Teacher and Dance Performance majors including Choreography Theory, Choreography Studio, Introduction to Teaching Strategies, and Tap Pedagogy.

Between graduating and returning to OCU, Kari performed with Lyric Theatre and worked in a private dance studio for over a decade honing her teaching skills. Kari says her favorite part of her job is creating the hands-on learning environment that takes place in her jazz and tap technique classes as well as facilitating discussions within her academics.

You can view some of Shaw’s choreography in American Spirit Dance Company’s upcoming production, Broadway Revue, March 12-14 in the Kirkpatrick Auditorium.
