DA: How old were you when you started dancing and how long have you been dancing?
Kimmy: I was 6 years when I started with ballet now I like to also do Hiphop.
DA: What studio do you currently dance at?
Kimmy: Ballet with my teacher Alba Carbonell Castillo
DA: What is your favorite dance style?
Kimmy: I love classical but now I really like Hiphop too!
DA: Who has been the most inspirational teacher that you have had and why?
Kimmy: I think I started Ballet only because I had to do that for my favorite sport: figure skating. But now I love a lot of different styles of dance. I love all my teachers!
DA: What obstacles have you had to overcome in order to keep dancing?
Kimmy: To be free in improvisation. Improvisation and interpretation of different music in figure skating is very easy for me. But trying to do that in dancing is hard. I’ve had to keep working on it.
DA: What do you do when you feel as though you want to give up?
Kimmy: It’s my passion: figure skating, dance, music. I’ve never had the idea to give up my passion!
DA: What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given during your dance career?
Kimmy: Limits exist only in the mind.
DA: What do you foresee yourself doing with dance in the future?
Kimmy: I have excelled at figure skating: This year, I’ve won 2 national competitions and 2 international competitions in my age division! Even if I am good in the interpretation of music, I like to improve my figureskating in choreo, dance, interpretation. To do this I have to dance a lot and I love dancing so much!
DA: Anything else you’d like to share about yourself?
Kimmy: No, I think you can see from the pictures, that I love really much to move/dance to all kinds of music. I also love to model 🙂
