Karen Tomkins Instructor

Karen joined blush in 2014 with a wealth of previous dance and teaching experience. She started as a student and an apprentice pole fitness instructor, moving into becoming a Franchise owner in 2015.

Karen’s background is in illusion and dance. Karen was a National Young Magician of the Year finalist at 15. Karen gained a BTEC national diploma in Dance at college and was accepted into a top professional training school The Urdang Academy. After graduating Karen went straight into work assisting in choreography for production shows at Warners Hotels, as well as dancing professionally within the shows herself.

 Karen was fortunate to have been part of a successful illusionist duo called “David and Karen.” They auditioned for the well known TV talent show Britains Got Talent. In 5 years of the show the magic duo were the first to impress all the judges and went straight through to the LIVE semi finals where they came 3rd in their heat and 2nd by the public vote. During this period David and Karen had interviews on Daybreak and This Morning. After the viewings on the show Karen and her magic partner went on to perform at a number of corporate events, headlined at prestigious places in London,such as G.A.Y, HSBC & Toyota!
