It's time to embrace the opportunity to live a purpose-driven life.

Hey, I'm Kathy!👋

My journey in entrepreneurship began the day I looked up to my parents at the age of eight and said "I am going to be a dance teacher when I grow up!"

From that day on, I poured every ounce of energy I had into becoming the best dancer, and eventually best dance teacher, that I could be. There was no backup plan, no "what if"... just a dream to share this love of dance with the world.

Fast forward a few decades, and here I am teaching dance professionally and fulfilling my purpose to inspire others to live a more positive and empowered life.

Kathy's bio

Here is a more full picture of Kathy's career experience...

Kathy King is a Metro Detroit-based certified entrepreneurship coach, dance educator, and mentor. Locally, Kathy teaches dance regularly at Michelle's Academy of Dance & Performing Arts Center in Brighton, MI, and is a frequent master teacher at dance studios statewide. You can also find her touring nationally as executive director and brand manager to the Los Angeles-based Artists in Training Dance Convention.


Kathy's entrepreneurial career began in 2006, when she founded the professional nonprofit company Michigan Dance Project, touring the Midwest for eight seasons and launching the careers of dozens of dancers. During this time, she also developed and launched the Brighton Dance Festival. BDF started as a grassroots summer event for local dancers, and bloomed into a premier international dance event for dancers ages 10 through adult. Kathy has since closed the doors on both organizations to pursue entrepreneurship coaching and consulting full time, but she will never hang up her teaching hat and plans to teach dance as long as she physically can!


In 2013, Kathy was named as a Crain's Detroit Business "20 in their 20s" for her work as a dance educator and director in Metro-Detroit, and in 2019 she received a "Special Tribute" honor from the State of Michigan for her contributions to the community through her work with Brighton Dance Festival. Kathy also spent several years as an adjunct lecturer and guest artist at Eastern Michigan University's School of Music & Dance, and served as head coach to the competitive dance team at Cleary University. She earned the title of NAIA WHAC Conference Dance Team Coach of Character in the 2019-20 season.

Kathy's passion for the arts has earned her seats on several nonprofit boards of directors, including the Arthur Secunda Museum, Brighton Center for the Performing Arts, and Jodie Randolph Dance Company.


She has also been featured as a speaker at the DanceLife Teacher Conference, the International Dance Entrepreneurs Association, the Dance Business Owner Summit, the Brighton Light House, the SESI Midwestern Entrepreneur Conference, and the Hartland Chamber of Commerce's Women in Business event.

Beyond the excitement of her career activities, Kathy is also an avid home cook, caregiver to her mama, adventurer with her husband and an optimism enthusiast!
