Kim Spiteri began her teaching career at the age of 16. Ever since then she’s been helping to develop aspiring dancers of all ages. She took her dance training with various instructors in Malta and abroad, during which she passed her dance teaching exams.
Kim Spiteri’s main love for dance is choreographing a dance and watching her students enjoy performing it. In choreography Kim believes that it’s all about being clear on the message you want to get across. She is always trying to find new ways to do this and how choreography is communicated to the dancers, to motivate them, involve them and to get the best out of them. For Kim choreography is all about being creative.
In 2002 and 2006 Kim Spiteri took a group of students to Tianjin in China to participate in the Tianjin Arts and Dance Festival where they performed to a 25 minutes dance programme, all choreographed by Kim Spiteri.
