Kimberly has a wonderful, thoughtful program that integrates geometry and math learning standards with movement and dance. The students adore her and she is knowledgeable and easy to work with from a staff/teacher viewpoint.”

I have gained confidence as a dance instructor from working under her at Wayne Center for the arts because she is always supportive, honest, and offers constructive criticism in a very clear and articulate way. She is also genuine and cares deeply about the people around her in a work environment which serves very well for the overall morale of the organization.”
