After taking World Beat Workout, Olivia said:
"I love how Kim's class was a great workout without feeling overwhelming with complicated choreography. Her sequences build organically throughout the class, making it easy to follow along and giving me a great sense of accomplishment by the end of the class. As a beginner, it was nice not feeling disheartened by a lot of new and different choreography, so I could focus on the joy of dancing and the awesome music selection! Kim is a great teacher, highly recommend"
