Ginger Goldbaum has been teaching dance for 12 years. She has experience on the professional stage as well as in the classroom. During her tenure as a student at CSULA (where she earned a BA in Business Marketing), Ginger worked as a professional dancer for artists like Queen Latifah, the Black Eyed Peas, and Janelle Monae. Ginger also taught at Providence High School with their choir and theater programs. She has 8 years of competition choreography under her belt, including top scoring 1st overalls. Coach Ginger says, “My main styles of dance are hip-hop and musical theater, so I am so excited to team up with Coach Kari who comes from a technical-training background. We plan to create a dynamic and well-rounded dance team! I am so incredibly honored and excited to be a dance coach for Castaic High School."
Kari Hollingsworth has been teaching since she was 15 and has choreographed professionally since she was 18. Since 2011, she has owned and operated an award-winning dance studio in Stevenson Ranch. She has trained in and has taught all styles of dance: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern, Stretch, Competition Teams, Leaps and Turns, and Pedagogy, but closest to her heart is working with High School Dance Teams. Not only was she a part of her dance team in high school, but was then inspired to further her dance education and get her BA in Dance from UCSB. She continues to strive for team success and a healthy competitive drive. Throughout her career, she has focused on giving every student individual attention to learn how to advance their skills using their own unique learning style. With this individual attention, along with a student's commitment to excellence, she believes that everyone has the chance to dance at a competitive level. Her goals are to instill work ethic, advanced skills, high standards, camaraderie, inclusion, and a safe place for kids to learn. Coach Kari says, “Dance has always been an important part of my life and I want to continue to bring that skill and passion to the kids in our community.”
