Suskind has a BFA in Musical Theatre from the prestigious Boston Conservatory at Berklee College of Music, where she had the honor of studying rhythm tap with the great Aaron Tolson, her favorite style of tap to teach and perform. Kimberly has always possessed a passion to teach others and was a tap tutor for her peers throughout her four years at The Boston Conservatory. As a result, she was awarded the prestigious Sue Ronson Levy tap scholarship toward her BFA.

While at The Boston Conservatory, she was a member and soloist of the Hoofers Tap Ensemble, which performed all over the greater Boston area. Prior to college, Kimberly’s love of tap was fostered by studying with several notable names in the tap world such as Dianne Walker, Lane Alexander, Sam Weber & Tim Hickey.

Suskind can currently be heard on the demo cast recording of Brilliant, a poignant new musical, where she originated the lead role of Sarah.

In her free time, Kimberly loves to craft, go to the beach and spend time with her amazing husband and their adorable rescue beagle, Professor Indiana Bones (Indy for short)! For more information about Kimberly, feel free to visit:
