“Kim adjusts to your level while ensuring that you continue to improve and get stronger. I’ve taken classes with other instructors, but she is by far the best teacher I’ve ever worked with.”
Jane Von Mehren, Brooklyn, NY
“I’m never very vocal during my Pilates sessions, but somehow Kim knows exactly what’s going on with my body. I look forward to each session with her as one of the highlights of my week!”
Kai-Ting Yang, Lawyer, New York, NY
“My movements and habits at home and work are more deliberate. I think about how I walk, sit and stand.  Pilates training has given me more confidence and it pours over into every other part of my life.”
Ilene Gordon, New York City

LEARN. MOVE. DANCE IT OUT.

AT OUR CORE, WE ARE DANCERS!

We believe that artistic movement education leads to breakthroughs in kinesthetic development, confidence, mental clarity, creativity, problem-solving and social skills.

Via our alter ego, Banana Peel Dance, we offer interactive dance workshops that embody participatory arts integration. We open with an athletic dance performance and transition into working in small groups where students are invited to create new dances with us.

Our focus on personal ingenuity allows students to explore their own potential as creators in any life endeavor!

“Kim Almquist entered the lives of the children at the United Nations International School as an artist-in-residence. I will never forget her first class. Her assignment was to have 20 nine year olds create a dance representing the rainforest of Cameroon. No small task!

Soliciting the children’s ideas, monkeys were leaping, snakes were wreathing, birds soared and chirped and dancing vines wove their way throughout the landscape. By the day of the performance, Kim’s masterful choreography netted a delightful, unified performance while honoring each child’s imaginary movements.

Kim’s presence nurtured a calm learning environment while inspiring a joyful and creative atmosphere. Every child was engaged.”

Joan Litman, Music Faculty (Emerita), United Nations International School, NYC
