Karn has been practicing and hosting Japanese ceremonial tea, Chanoyu, since 2018. As a tango teacher, he has previously taught at the Bechtel International Center at Stanford, Jikoji Zen Center in Los Gatos, and Friday Night Waltz & Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto. He dances many contemporary and historical dances and has been teaching tango since 2017. In the same year, he traveled to Buenos Aires to study Argentine tango intensely and recently returned from Rome after training with dancer, actor, and teacher, Pablo Verón. His teaching and social dance philosophy are inspired by Stanford dance teacher and historian, Richard Powers, who was instrumental in bringing tango to the United States in the 80s and 90s through the Stanford Tango Weeks.
