Kim has studied dance extensively and specialised in Freestyle, Street dance and theatre craft along with children yoga mindfulness and meditation. A powerful combination that would lead Kim to create Flex Yo Style a 3in1 approach to Dance, Fitness & Well-being.
Kim began her dance training at the young age of seven under the recommendation of her doctor as she was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and was told she could expect to be in a wheelchair by the age of 18yrs. Thankfully this was not the outcome and Kim turned her hobby and passion into a full-time career. It was here she understood the true meaning of a positive mindset.
Kim opened up her very first dance school at the age of 18yrs, thousands of pupils have passed through her doors and many of her pupils are now in the professional dance world teaching, performing & acting. Kim also studied applied social studies and physiology in a bid to expand her horizons after completing her leaving certificate, however, nothing moved her like her love for DANCE.
In Sept 2019 after 22 years in business, many studies, research, and planning, FLEX YO STYLE was born and is now been launched into the world as a creative, inclusive and inspiring Dance Syllabus for students from 4-17yrs. Kim will be providing full training certification with franchise opportunities so she can teach, support and empower others to create a life they will love doing something that is so unbelievably rewarding.

Hi im Jennifer Buckley
I started teaching with UltraFlex in 2006 I'm a teacher choreographer and area manager with Ultraflex and have loved every minute.
Dancing has always been a massive part of my life. Ultra-Flex offers support and teachers in a fresh, practical and caring manner.
The school has changed and evolved with the times we are always improving our services up-skilling, training and thinking outside the box so we can bring the best learning experience to our students.
The school is non-competitive, therefore we put focus on the child, not the prize. This career path opens so many wonderful, challenging and exciting doors!
"Behind every single dancer is a teacher who believed in them first"- be that teacher!
