Kim Francey

I am a dance artist with a keen interest in highly athletic and immersive movement styles and enjoy pushing perceived limitations. I research, develop and perform in other peoples' work as well as my own.

I teach my own movement practice to professional and non-professional dancers of all ages/abilities. I offer a high energy, sweaty, safe approach to contemporary movement with emphasis on flow, floorwork and expansiveness.


Originally from Aberdeen, Kim trained professionally at the Institute of the Arts Barcelona (Ba Hons) where she performed works by Humanhood (Julia Robert and Rudi Cole), Jamal Callender and Julia Ehrstrand. Upon graduating, Kim joined James Wilton Dance as an apprentice, became adept in the company’s renowned movement vocabulary and participated in R&D processes for new works. Kim continued her apprenticeship with Motionhouse, performing with the company in Wondrous Stories (launch show for the 2022 Commonwealth Festival) and HENGE. As part of the original cast, Kim devised and performed HENGE throughout 2022 before completing her Masters in Contemporary Dance Performance with Distinction from Northern School of Contemporary Dance.

Kim has gone on to perform professionally with Motionhouse in the Big Eurovision Welcome Party (2023), ITV's Big NYE Bash (2023) and upskilled her original role in HENGE for a second performance run in 2023. In addition to this Kim devised and performed in Carbon Copy by Cagoule Dance (Abby Warrilow), at Hidden Door Festival (2023), Sonata by Marc Brew in collaboration with Dunedin Consort, and completed her own choreographic residency generously funded by Dance Base (2023), she also participated in the research and development of a new dance opera with Off the Rails dance (Eileen McClory) in Belfast (2023).
