Dance & Choreographer Head Coach Kimmy

by storm

We are very excited to bring back Dance Coach & Choreographer Kimmy R.
This will be Kimmy’s second year coaching The Storm Girls! Her dance training started at the age of 3.

She is proficient in many styles of dance including Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, and Acro. At age 11, she became a member of The Imperial Russian Ballet Company, focusing on ballet and pointe.

In High School, she joined an award-winning competitive dance team that took the National Title for several dances all four years of her attending. Kimmy took her first teaching job during high school at IRBC teaching ballet to preschool children. Kimmy attended Orange Coast Community College and received her Early Childhood Education degree. Getting back to teaching dance in 2010 at a local studio, Kimmy won a Choreographer Award at a dance competition in 2013.

After moving to Central Oregon in 2000 and having three beautiful children, she started working at a local preschool in 2009 where she is currently employed.

Kimmy opened Diamond Dance Academy in July of 2015 with a competitive dance team. In 2016 and 2018, her studio won the ADCC Studio of Excellence Award which is given for great sportsmanship, respect backstage, a love of dance, and all-around team spirit. To stay current on the latest styles and techniques, she continues her dance education with Dance Teacher Summit conventions, master classes, and enrolling in NDEO and Acrobatic Arts enrichment courses.
