Vancouver based performer and style professional Simone Kingman approaches her current projects with the same grace and confidence that she is known for in the world of dance. Simone was born and raised in West Vancouver BC and graduated from Magee Secondary School in the SPARTS program which allowed her to split her time between the classroom and the dancefloor. Simone turned professional in 2007 after completing Arts Umbrella’s 2-year professional dance program.
Her mentors always knew she would go far and shortly after graduating, her dance career took her to Toronto, Montreal and New York to perform with some of the best-known choreographers in the world. Never one to sit still, after performing in the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games she set off to London to pursue her dance career further. After recently moving back to Vancouver Simone found new inspiration in the fashion world. As Simone puts it “I’m always looking for new ways to express my creativity.” This next chapter in her life has taken her around the world as a buyer for a high-end boutique in West Vancouver, LeslieJane. In her spare time Simone is pursuing several acting and modeling projects. Simone thinks of life as a stage and as a performer at heart she is always looking for ways to express herself to her audience, whoever they may be.
