Instructor/Competition Teams

Candace Kimi Sakimoto has been a part of the TMR family for over 20 years. She started dancing at the studio when she was 7, and began teaching at the age of 15. Kimi trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical and contemporary, and competed with TMR dance companies/ensembles for 10 years. In the summer of 2011, she performed at the Invitational Dance Festival presented by Artistic Director Dee Caspary and had the opportunity to dance with some of LA’s top professional dancers. In 2016 Kimi graduated from Chapman University, Dodge College, majoring in Public Relations and Advertising. In addition to teaching dance, Kimi is a coordinator at Anonymous Philanthropy, which builds philanthropy plans to help clients find fulfillment in giving and impact change in the causes they’re passionate about in the world. Her goal as a teacher is to pass down everything she has learned at TMR about dance, love, family, kindness and respect.
