Mindy Kim began dancing at 3 years old in her hometown of Redlands California. She immediately loved the art of and has been dancing ever since. In her first ever dance class “Introduction to Ballet and Tap” she fell in love with Tap.
While running her successful dance company in Texas she was diagnosed with Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy. It was a career ending diagnosis as Myotonic Dystrophy is degenerative and over time you lose more and more muscle tone throughout her body. Devastated with this news and her new title as disabled Mindy took it upon herself to find a new way to dance, it was then she began Chair tap.
Mindy has been teaching a variety of dance styles to a variety of students for over 20 years now and loves Chair Tap the most. Currently she lives in North Carolina where she teaches Chair One Fitness to differently abled people in her community. She hopes to continue to share Chair Tap with many more people and spread Adaptive Dance, and an appreciation there-in, to all people who might have questioned their danceability.
