At sixteen, she successfully auditioned, then attended Laine Theatre Arts, Surrey, where amongst many others, Victoria Beckham, the winners of the last two seasons of ‘So you think you can Dance’ and leading choreographer Karen Bruce, were all trained.
During her three years there she achieved a diploma in Dance and LAMDA drama. She also became an Associate member of the ISTD, a QCF & internationally recognised teaching qualification, which now runs in conjunction with the Edexcel Diploma in secondary schools.
Before deciding to teach Kim danced professionally for P & O Princess Cruises, Thompson Holidays and Stageworks Worldwide Productions.
In the winter of 1996, Kim took over the running of the Dysart School of Dance from its founder. The school has grown to around 200 pupils, some of whom have gone on to full time vocational dance college and then on to dance professionally.
Kim now holds the ISTD Diploma in Dance Education for Imperial Ballet, National, Tap and Modern Theatre, and is now an associate of the IDTA. Kim has a DBS certificate and is trained in first aid.
