The description of this Item
Karen Jamieson's dance journey, along with many others Vancouver-based artists, began at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia in the late sixties/early seventies when non-credit dance workshops were being offered to students, regardless of their major or faculty of study. Attendance of one such workshop with Iris Garland rerouted Jamieson's life, causing her to pursue dance wholeheartedly and leave her teaching degree behind.
