Kim Hammond returns to teaching ballet and tap after a brief hiatus.

Her formal training began as a small child studying with some truly great dancers and teachers and concluding with her participation in the dance department at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, Texas. After college, she spent decades as the Artistic Director and Owner of the Hammond Studio of Dance in Solana Beach.

Known by generations of students simply as Miss Kim, she is proud to remember fondly each student whether the little dancer turned out to be an award-winning choreographer, a professional dancer, a musical theater actor or just an adult who appreciates that life was enriched by music and motion.

She especially enjoys former students bringing back their little ones to dance with Miss Kim. As Kim says when she meets a little one – “You should be dancing!”
