    Kim Holmes, legendary hip hop dancer, teacher, choreographer, and founder and artistic director of the Universal Dance Movement, has been in the field of dance for over 20 years. Along with her formal training in traditional dance, Kim was intrigued by the creative energy of contemporary dance as expressed in the urban forms of hip hop, which led her to work with both rising and established stars in the music industry including Jay-Z, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Missy Elliot, Salt-N- Pepa, Mya, Yummy Bingham, Deemi, Dance Fusion, and Kr3t’s among many others.

    Influences from Ballet, Jazz, Modern, African, Hip Hop and House make her solos intriguing and keep you wanting more. Kim’s artistry, talent and skill are focused on the expression of movement to inspire people of all ages to love life and commit to living to the fullest.

    Kim’s philosophy is “Dance is a world of movement which allows us to express all emotions and gives us a sense of ability to release, heal, and be free spirits.” There is no room for mediocrity, only greatness!

    House Fundamentals

    Great for beginners, this class breaks down basic steps (like jacking, skating, chase, salsa hop, sidewalk, stomp,shuffle step) to build a solid foundation that will allow you to move, groove, and freestyle to the music. You’ll learn to dance in both free- flowing and syncopated movements to African, Techno, and Latin-infused rhythms from Salsa and Bachata, and learn floor work like lofting and dives.

    "Kim Holmes' house dance class is the best house dance class that I have ever taken.
    It is invaluable and irreplaceable.
    … it was not until I started attending Kim's class that I truly started to progress."
