I am Kimi aka Kisarhi, a creative-thinking, quiet-achieving Aussie gal currently based in Vancouver, Canada. I live here with my partner Aaron and our days off are usually spent at our local bouldering gym, followed by a yummy brunch at our favourite cafe.
Growing up an aspiring dancer, I spent almost every waking moment at the dance studio. This love of movement has carried throughout my life to now, where I have the privilege of combining my two greatest passions - creativity and movement - to create something special for you.
I love to move.
I feel alive when I'm moving my body. I've grown up dancing and I really don't know any different. I don't feel like me when I'm not moving my body.
I love to create.
I have quite the colourful imagination. Choreography has always been one of my favourite elements of dance, and after many years playing with a camera as a teen, I started my own photography business after university. I love storytelling and have used various art forms over the years to portray my visions.
I love health and fitness.
I have a passion for health and wellbeing. Nutrition deeply fascinates me and I spend my spare time reading books, listening to podcasts and watching videos to better inform my personal choices and gain a greater understanding and breadth of knowledge.
I love to see others succeed.
Nothing brings me more joy than seeing others thrive. For a number of years now, I've pondered how I can do the things that I love while adding value to the lives of others. That's what Kisarhi is. I've trained and studied my whole life for this without even knowing it. I can use my gifts and talents to help others become the best versions of themselves. Dancing changed the course of my life; it empowers me mentally as much as it does physically. And with that, I hope my videos can help do the same for you.
Alongside my intensive dance training (15+ years), I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and Post-Graduate Diploma in Education. I've taken classes in almost all styles of dance known to man and know Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz and Tap like the back of my hand. I have a thorough understanding of dance history, anatomy and critical analysis through my university and extra-curricular studies.
I've coached dancers of all ages and abilities, and developed training and education programs for private studios, one-on-one coaching for semi-professionals, and curriculum-approved study for high school students.
I have extensive experience in fitting dance and pointe shoes and have given advice to many ballerinas (and their parents!) regarding shoes, technique and career progression.
Along the way, I've also become quite proficient with a DSLR. I've photographed everything from newborn babes to funerals, budding ballerinas to professional high fashion models.
My life has been dedicated to exploring all the gifts that dance and the arts has to offer. And the greatest gift of all is presenting dance to you.
Kisarhi is a fusion of my full name (Kimberley-Sarah-Hill) and let's be honest, my name looks way cooler chopped up and blended together! The Kisarhi name mash-up is also symbolic of the fitness routines I choreograph - a fusion of workout styles, coming together to make something new and far more exciting!
