This month’s spotlight is high school freshman, Kimberly Quirk. Kimberly loves to spend her free time dancing and perfecting her performance. At first glance, Kimberly may appear to be a typical high schooler, but Kimberly’s hard work and dedication to the dance arts reveal she is far from the ordinary.
With training 20-25 hours each week, Kimberly has learned the importance of managing her time wisely. One of the secrets to Kimberly’s success is her understanding of the compound effect and identifying small pockets of time to be productive throughout her busy day. She recognizes there simply isn’t time to procrastinate and takes advantage of any free moment for schoolwork, even if that means bringing homework to the studio.
Kimberly’s efficiency paid off last year when she won her all-time favorite award, the American Dance Awards Regional Title. Kimberly also placed in the top 15 out of 60 Titleist at nationals this past summer in New York City and danced the lead role as Clara in her studios’ production of The Nutcracker last year! Kimberly encourages other dancers to be determined, “Everyone has their off days and maybe even off months, but remember why you love to dance and keep working hard.”
As for Kimberly’s dance favorites, she enjoys contemporary style and being able to express herself. She loves that dance is her outlet and that she can show her feelings through beautiful movements. Kimberly even holds dance accountable for making her into the person she is today. She feels that being a dancer her entire life has shaped her personality and grown her level of maturity.
After high school, she would love to attend college for dance and later join a professional company. More Than Dancers is looking forward to all Kimberly will achieve in the future!
