Kimberley Davis

Kimberley was born in Maitland, NSW and trained with Beth Reid and Suzanne Pettit.  In 1989 she moved to Melbourne to study at the Victorian College of the Arts and at the end of her first year won the Christenson Bond Scholarship.  She graduated with a B.A. in Dance from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1992 and joined the QLD Ballet in 1993. Here Kimberley had a long and happy career.

She was given the opportunity to perform many feature roles under the direction of both Harold Collins and Francois Klaus who took over the company in 1998. Kimberley was elevated to principal dancer in 1999 and enjoyed working with a variety of choreographers.  As well as enjoying the challenge of some of the more notable classic ballets such as Giselle, Coppelia and the Nutcracker, Kimberley also had several pieces created on her such as The Host (Natalie Weir), Lizzie (Paul Boyd) and The Little Mermaid (Francois Klaus).  Kimberley was nominated for a Helpmann Award in 2002 for her work in The Big Three.

In 2003 Kimberley fell pregnant and gave birth to a girl after which time she chose not to return to performing, rather choosing to pursue an interest in Pilates and Dance Teaching.  She completed her Stott Pilates certification in 2004 and Polestar Pilates certification in 2007. She now teaches Pilates at the Pilates and Healing Centre in Chelmer and is a level 2 PAA member.  She has taught ballet classes at Milton Academy of Dance and the University of Queensland as well as being a guest teacher for numerous ballet schools around Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

In 2011 Kimberley is happy to be joining the team at 2ballerinas to share her knowledge and love of Dance.
