Martha Traer was born into the humid air of a Chicago summer evening. Little did she know at that moment all that was in store for her. Her eyes couldn’t handle the bright lights of the sterile white hospital room. Her feet were pressed into a black ink pad and then pressed firmly onto a sheet of paper. From that moment on she was part of the system. Did the government care about this little girl born to two individuals in their early 30s and Late 20s respectively? Was she, at this moment a participant in the American Dream, or simply the product of it? Her journey to discover self would begin as soon as she could recognize her own strength and individuate herself from her parents… 

At that moment, she saw the ground rushing towards her face. Concussion…..She really loved dancing on stage….That is the moment she found a video camera. She would walk around with it strapped to her hip for the next 10 years….She graduated with a BA in Film Production…After three years of working in the club she broke out on her own and while working at Luna Rienne Gallery, she simultaneously supported artists and activists, using her talents to share people’s stories and work….7 years later she moved to Santa Fe New Mexico…

Kara is enlivened by unexpected connections and collaboration. Kara's first community was a group of rowdy Russian Folk Musicians at a Renaissance Festival in Magnolia, TX, inspiring her love of dance. She graduated with a degree in Photography and Digital Media which became as passionate of a practice as dancing. She would spend countless hours in the darkroom feeling connected to alchemists of old and that connection delighted her. 

After working as a Freelance Photographer, an advertising retoucher, and a Zoo Ranger, Kara moved with her husband to Santa Fe and became a massage therapist. In Santa Fe, she discovered a strong and quirky arts community which rekindled her love of performance and led her to co-found an improvisational dance group, Underland Dance. 

Besides leaping, Kara loves dark chocolate, cats, her family, and living in Santa Fe, the best place on Earth.
