Kim began training as a dancer at three years old. From the very start, she loved every second of dance. By age eight, she was training in ballet 30 hours a week, and at 12 years old she received 3rd at the National Tap Event sponsored by tap industry legend Gregory Hines. Mr Hines was so impressed with Kim that he traveled to her studio in Dallas to give her a private lesson.
At 24 years old, Kim moved to L.A., where she quickly achieved success, booking jobs with Britney Spears, N’Sync and Michael Jackson, among many others. Despite her growing career, Kim felt drawn to teaching and decided to focus her career strictly on training dancers.
As a teacher, Kim first joined Adrenaline on the convention circuit before being picked up by the largest dance convention in the world, JUMP. For six years, Kim taught everything from ballet and jazz to hip-hop, interacting with thousands of students a week. After that experience, Kim joined NUVO as the Children’s Director. Focusing on technical development, she gained a reputation for inspiring young dancers to be more than excellent performers, but also excellent people.
