In our first Skype interview, we connected with Kimberly Falker, founder of Balancing Pointe podcast and Premier Dance Network. Kimberly shared how she became inspired to start the first dance podcast and eventually the first dance podcast network. She also revealed tips and advice on dance podcasting and opened up about lessons learned and her greatest assets for success—consistency, work ethic and going back to her “why.” Learn how she continues to expand the conversation on dance as she encourages other dancers with her mantra of podcasting for all.
Kimberly Falker is the host of Balancing Pointe Podcast, where she interviews successful and inspiring guests who are living and working in the world of professional ballet and dance. Each episode offers specific “take away” advice for the aspiring dancer and valuable information on the “real” world of professional dance. Kimberly is a Florida native who worked in Elementary Education before attending law school and building a career as a prosecutor for the Department of Social Services in Boton. During college, she performed in the Florida State Flying High Circus, which is similar to Cirque du Soleil. Now, Kimberly is the mother of both an athlete and a serious student of ballet. As her daughter, Cosette, became more focused and passionate about pursuing a future in ballet, Kimberly realized that she needed to learn how to best support and guide Cosette through the world of ballet. She launched Balancing Pointe podcast as a way to learn about the dance world and share her learnings with other students, parents and anyone interested in dance. Since launching Balancing Pointe Podcast, Kimberly has interviewed over 100 talented and passionate dance makers.
