Kim comes from Massachusetts where she trained at the Boston Ballet before getting her BFA from Fordham University/Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. Upon graduation, she became a member of Heidi Latsky Dance in New York before relocating to California. After teaching and performing in and around the LA area, Kim moved to Colorado to take the artistic director role at NorthRidge Dance Conservatory. She also began teaching at both University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak Community College as an adjunct professor, teaching ballet technique and dance fundamentals, while becoming a certified yoga instructor at Corepower Yoga. Kim is honored to be a guest artist and master teacher at Ormao Dance Company and Synergy Dance Academy, as well as a recurring visiting instructor at the World Arena in Colorado, working with pre-professional and professional figure skaters training athletes ages 8-18 in various modern dance techniques. Between these guest engagements, she continues to teach ballet technique, Horton-based modern, tap, composition/choreography and yoga in Los Angeles. Kim recently earned her MFA in April of 2019 in Choreography from Jacksonville University, graduating with high honors.
After completing the Lester Horton Pedagogy Workshop at the Ailey School in New York, she has greatly enjoyed passing the dynamic and athletic Horton modern technique on to students around the world, most recently participating in a three-week residency and performance workshop in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, February of 2019.
She is now back in Los Angeles and very happy to return to DC Dance Center!
