Conversations with Kara Anthony

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kara Anthony.

Hi Kara, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My journey started in Baltimore Maryland, where I attended the Baltimore School fooie The Yayyyy The Shiza Dance major. I went on to pursue dance at The Ailey School in New York City with Fordham University. After a Master’s program and studying abroad, I decided to compete in Latin hustle in the New York and Philadelphia area. As soon found myself relocating to Los Angeles to start teaching dance and acting. And I’ve officially been here for over six years now working in commercials and as a brand ambassador.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I used to think that my journey was full of struggles, but being where I am now, I realize that it was simply just me having to climb mountains because my dream is so massive. The journey has definitely consisted of ups and downs and lots of lessons learned. I’ve learned to use my skills and assets to create a stable living while I create on my dream, keep good sane people around me, and do whatever it takes to stay mentally and spiritually sound in this crazy world.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’ve heard several national commercials and campaigns with brands that have allowed me to showcase their product in the best light. I’ve had a lot of fun traveling, and meeting different people, are also getting to play pretend! I’m actually most proud of the projects that I’ve been inspired to create on my own on my YouTube channel. I have a series called “An Ode to Colored Girls”. And another series called “Conversations with Myself”. Creating the series have been very therapeutic for myself, fortunately helped and better than others as well.

I believe with sets me apart from others is really and truly being me. No one thinks like me, no one can bring to the table what I bring artistically, and I really love that about myself.

What’s next?
Now for the future, I’d like to transition into film and television. And I’d like to collaborate and work with more people that really inspire me. I also have an opportunity to continue working with kids in dance as a choreographer for musicals. That I think I am most looking forward to so far.
