Ms. Kara Thayer

I am excited to be a part of the staff and family here at Clements High School. My dance training began at a young age and my passion for dance grew during my high school years. I am a graduate of Brazosport ISD, having danced on the award winning dance team – The Brazoswood Buccaneer Belles, where I was a member of the Jazz Company and First Kick Line all three years. I held the officer position of Captain my Junior year and head postion, Major, my Senior year.

I continued my education and dance training at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. I graduated with a BFA in Dance and a BS in Public Relations. I continue my growth as a teacher at Barbie Rhodes Dance Studio instructing Drill Team Prep, Advanced Contemporary, Lyrical and Advanced Jazz classes. I expanded my dance knowledge by working for a prominent dance company – Crowd Pleasers Dance, where I had the opportunity to be a contest staff member and get the ins and outs of what it entails to conduct a dance competition. The experiences I gained while working with the company and teaching at the studio will helped me fine-tune my natural talents as a dancer and a teacher! I am beginning my third year at CHS as the Assistant Director of the award winning Stars Dance Team and Director of the Twinkles JV Dance Team!

My hobbies outside of dancing include watching Netflix, Tex-Mex (queso!), hanging out with my friends, and traveling near and far!
