Kim Marie Peterson has been studying dance for over 35 years and teaching for over 25 years. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance and Education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She continues to enhance her dance abilities through master classes, conventions and workshops.
Dancing since she was 3 years old, Kim Marie has a passion for dance as an expression of life and she strives to pass on her love of dance to her students of all ages. Although Kim enjoys teaching all ages, she spent a significant amount of her free time working with high school students and has choreographed high school musicals and local theater group musicals from 1992-2003.
In addition to her work at the studio, Kim Marie is also committed to her community. She was a winner in the Bolingbrook/DuPage Township Junior Miss Scholarship Program in 1989 and has been actively involved ever since. She has volunteered her time as program chairwoman, producer, director and choreographer for over 15 years. Junior Miss has given out over $120,000 in scholarship money during that time.
Kim Marie was recognized as the “Outstanding Young Woman of the Year” by the Bolingbrook Jaycees in 1998. She was also featured on Channel 7's “Someone You Should Know” segment for her service and dedication to her community.
In the last nine years, Kim Marie has gotten the studio and her students involved in fundraising for the American Cancer Society and has taken a leadership role in the annual “Relay for Life” held in Bolingbrook each May. She led efforts in past years which raised over $100,000 from our studio.
In 2005, Kim Marie's family was chosen as the “Family of the Year” by the Village of Bolingbrook. The Jascewsky family has lived in Bolingbrook for over 40 years and has spent many hours dedicating themselves to building a better Bolingbrook.
