Your 2022 Show Directors

Kim McKimmie
International Director

Miss McKimmie began her dance career in Portland, Oregon, at the age of three and Dance has taken her all over the world ever since! She taught Dance at the University level as well as opened her first Dance Studio in 1979. She has either danced professionally, taught dance, or produced dance events in most major cities throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Japan and Australia. She has enjoyed producing I LOVE DANCE for 44 years, and every year creates a schedule that is a spectacular showcase for performers of all ages and ability levels. Although Championship Conventions, Sweetheart & HeartThrob Floorshows, Dance Intensive Master Classes and the "Sweetheart Of The Year" Pageants have been thrilling events for her to produce all these years, those Finalé productions have been “On Hold” the past few years as Miss Kim pursues her own unique personal and professional goals. Kim is very proud of the many working Dancers who attribute their success to I LOVE DANCE and the Sweetheart & HeartThrob programs.

Kim is the Tour Leader of an annual ILD Travel opportunity with I LOVE DANCE / Travel Division. “Tours With Kim” had scheduled a 2020 Bavarian dream vacation including Oberammergau - now postponed. Oberammergau is know for the Passion Play that has been performed every ten years since 1634 and is a world-class theatrical experience. The Passion Play is now postponed until 2022 and 750,000 people are expected to attend. Kim will be updating any “Tours With Kim” offerings for 2022 and will have all tour details posted to this website!

Karen Lundy
Karen was dancing at age four and teaching dance at age fifteen. Her great success at educating others in the Art of Dance made the decision to devote her life to it very easy. She is dedicated to having her students excel at Ballet, Jazz, Acrobatics and even Baton--but her greatest love and area of expertise is Tap! She is known as a Master Tap Teacher herself and her ongoing studies have been at the "feet" of the Master Tap Teachers, who are known world-wide as famous, old-school Hoofers. She has performed on Television, in USO shows and at Theme Parks. She has choreographed numbers and entire musicals for Universities, Theaters and Beauty Pageants. Karen has taught non-stop in Florida since 1984. For more than thirty years, she has encouraged many students towards performing and teaching careers. Miss Karen had many students who were selected as members of the ILD Sweetheart Group - including her own dancing daughters. One of her daughters, Sarah Lundy, operates her own Dance Studio in the Orlando, Florida area (Sarah's School of Dance) and is indeed following in her Mother's footsteps as an ILD Show Director as well. Mrs. Lundy has been part of the I LOVE DANCE Directing Staff for over twenty years.
