FULL NAME: KAREN VANESSA HAUER
Karen was born in Venezuela and came to the USA at 8 years old with my mom, dad, brother, and sister. Her father abandoned them a year after arriving to the U.S. Her mother raised them alone in a new country. She started dancing shortly after she was picked from a school-wide audition. She took all her feelings, emotions, and bad/good experiences and used them as fuel for her dancing.
