Meet Our Founder

Kim began her dance training at the young age of seven under the recommendation of her doctor as she was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and was told she could expect to be in a wheelchair by the age of 18yrs. Thankfully this was not the outcome and Kim turned her hobby and passion into a full-time career. It was here she understood the true meaning of a positive mindset.

Kim opened up her very first dance school at the age of 18yrs, thousands of pupils have passed through her doors and many of her pupils are now in the professional dance world teaching, performing & acting. Kim also studied applied social studies and physiology in a bid to expand her horizons after completing her leaving certificate, however, nothing moved her like her love for DANCE.

In Sept 2019 after 22 years in business, many studies, research, and planning, FLEX YO STYLE was born and is now been launched into the world as a creative, inclusive and inspiring Dance teaching method. Kim will be providing full training certification with licence opportunities so she can teach, support and empower others to create a life they will love doing something that is so unbelievably rewarding.

What Ultra-Flex is not..

  • FlexYoStyle is NOT a competitive school. We do NOT attend outside competitions. We run our own annual in-house dance awards & competition day where all students participating will receive an award and we also award 1st 2nd & 3rd place. This give's the students a taste of competition in a fun & friendly environment where they can learn to support each other.

 

As a mum of two girls, I understand time is precious. I can see now more than ever how important it is to get the best out of each class. Committing to hours of extra practice with extra events is both expensive and time-consuming. It's about looking forward to each class knowing you will learn something new, have fun and meet friends. Progressing through a professional learning system will take you right up to our teaching level. We offer prosperity, not prizes.
