Frequently asked questions

Can anyone register for - The Kim Gingras Experience - online mentorship program?

This online mentorship program is catered to dancers of all ages and all experiences all around the world looking to improve their craft, better understand the industry, and evolve as an artist and professional dancer.
Note that it's illegal for anyone under the age of 13 years old to own a social media platform. Therefore, a parent should register and accompany the child in question. 

What is the main difference between all 3 packages?

Think of PACKAGE 1 as an invitation to virtually hang out with me & a group of really fun dancers. Grab some hot coco or your favorite vino, have a pen and paper near by and get comfortable. We will be having intentional conversations/Q&As twice a month where I tell ALL. On top of that, you will have a lifetime access to a safe, intimate and welcoming dance community via Facebook. In this private FB group, you are encouraged to ask others questions, share your wins, be vulnerable, connect with likeminded people, get advice and offer your support. I believe in surrounding yourself with people who champion you and this community is just that!

With PACKAGE 2, not only are you a part of our bimonthly conversations and the intimate FB community mentioned above BUT YOU ARE ALSO getting to work one-on-one with me through video calls, worksheets, challenges, feedback, and coaching. I cater to your personal needs, assist you in getting real specific with your goals, and together we create the perfect game plan for your dreams.

You can take it one step further with PACKAGE 3 where you get everything offered above PLUS double the amount of one-on-one time with me which means more exercises, more homework, more accountability and more progress. You are ALSO invited to a special & exclusive event I will be hosting to connect with you in person and to benefit you and your career. Take note that this private event takes place in Montreal in 2020. If you can't make it, no problem! You get a 7th one-on-one session with me instead.

My time is limited. What will be required of me?

You are welcome to pop in to the private Facebook community group any time you'd like and for as long as you'd like. You decide how involved your schedule permits you to be with the conversations and Q&As I will be throwing your way. If you miss our bimonthly group conversations, don't worry! You will have access to the recording after.
For the one-on-one sessions with me, we go at your preferred pace. We can schedule your sessions every week, every couple of weeks, every month, or when needed within that 3 month mentorship subscription.
As for the homework and challenges I give you, it will vary in duration ranging between 3 to 6 hours of work/dance after each private session depending on what we are personally working on with you.

Is the program available in multiple languages?

I'm very excited to announce that this mentorship program is available in both English and French. All worksheets, audio material and communication is available in both languages. Be sure to let me know your preference.
The answer is also YES for the private FB community. I will be conversing in both languages and I encourage you to do the same. It's a safe space for you to practice a language other than your native language.
For our bimonthly group calls via Zoom, I will be speaking in English. If something needs to be cleared up in French, I will stay after the call to clarify a few points. I believe this is a great way for French speaking dancers to become more fluent in English to better prepare for this English speaking industry.

Do I have access to the Zoom conversations and the private Facebook group even after I've completed all my one-on-one sessions with you?

Absolutely. You have access to our bimonthly conversations for the entire 3 months of your mentorship. As for the private FB community, you are a member for life.

Can I book extra one-on-one sessions with you?

You most certainly can! You can add as many individual sessions to your PACKAGE as you'd like. Contact me for us to create a mentoring PACKAGE that works best for you.

KIM HAS NEVER “TOLD” ME WHAT TO DO, RATHER, SHE GAVE ME THE TOOLS TO FIND THAT OUT ON MY OWN AND HELP ME CARVE MY OWN PATH. KIM ALSO HELPED ME VISUALIZE AND PLAN MY MOVE TO L.A. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE THE MOVE BECAUSE OF THE FORWARD-THINKING AND PLANNING SHE HAD ME DO. I’M ENDLESSLY GRATEFUL FOR HER GUIDANCE AND BEAUTIFUL SHAPING PRESENCE IN MY LIFE.

KIM INSTANTLY KNEW HOW TO MAKE ME FEEL LIKE AN EQUAL. SHE OFFERED ME HER TIME, AN EAR, BOOKS TO READ AND SPECIAL GESTURES THAT ALLOWED ME TO OPEN UP, GROW AND SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY. I HAVE NEVER FELT SO AUTHENTIC TO MYSELF AS I DO TODAY.

a feel-good exercise for you

Dear younger self

When's the last time you complimented yourself? Yes, you read that right.
We're so quick to judge ourselves, to wish we were "better", to compare ourselves to others and to doubt what we have to offer.
So here's a fun and POWERFUL exercise for you: write a letter to your younger self. Be compassionate, caring and full of love. Express what you wish someone would have told you. Encourage and reassure your younger self the way you would your best friend. Celebrate your small victories. Embrace what makes you unique. And remember to seek validation in your own heart before seeking it in others.
