Truly magical! A triumph of the human spirit!  Karen Burns is a former Radio City Rockette, a working actor, a loving wife and mother, and a master storyteller. An Otherwise Magical Life is Karen’s amazing story of, not just survival, but transcendence.


A childhood marked by pain, disability, multiple surgeries and traumatic abuse. And, then, a narrow escape from California’s “Golden State Killer.” And yet, incredibly, Karen is here today to share her personal odyssey with you. 


With music and movement, a sharp wit and self-deprecating humor, she’ll capture your heart and soothe your soul. Yes, in spite of the worst the world can throw at us, life is still a celebration of the possible.


As Karen says, “When given a chance to dance, dance, and laugh, It can save your life.”
