Looking at her figure, you might assume that Kim is someone who knows how to shake it. However, it seems that this is not the case.
Despite having made appearances on popular television dance show Dancing with the Stars, it has become clear that dancing is not Kim’s forte.
Read more below about where Kim can be caught dancing and what she thinks about her dancing dilemmas.
Kim Kardashian On Dancing with the Stars
Dancing with the Stars is a reality television show on which celebrities are paired up with professional dancers and taught dances to compete against one another. Kim went on the show in 2008 and didn’t stay for long.
When being taught the Mambo by her dance partner Mark Ballas she struggled to get a grasp on the moves.
The star seemed overly self-conscious and unable to loosen up. “The biggest problem with the Mambo is just shaking my butt, everyone thinks I know how and I just really don’t,” she said.
The star was third to be eliminated from the show and afterwards she said that she felt like an “idiot” when performing on the stage. Kim told Entertainment Tonight that her fall down was the Rumba and after the show was over vowed to never dance again.
Kim’s refusal to dance is even said to set off conflict between her and Kanye.
During a trip to Cuba she told her sister Kourtney and friend Malika Haqq that the couple have fought over the fact that Kim refuses to dance at Kanye’s shows.
Kim Finding Her Feet Again
Despite vowing to never dance again after her Dancing with the Stars disaster, it seems as though Kim is gradually finding her feet again…her dancing feet that is. A video shows Kim finally dancing, front row with Taylor Swift, during Kanye West’s performance at the 2015 Brit Awards.
Despite it not being anything close to as difficult as the Mambo, Kim’s dancing during the show wasn’t at all bad. She looked like she was having fun at least.
In another instance, although much more awkwardly on this occasion, Kim can be caught dancing to one of her own songs, Jam, in 2011 during a publicity trip to Dubai. Kim’s tune made it to number 17 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100s List of March the same year it was released.
However, on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2018 Kim said, “I’m like a notorious non-dancer”. Whilst her sisters were being taught a dance Kim remained sat, watching from the sidelines, and when asked to join in she remained stubborn, claiming that she didn’t dance but instead that she, “make money moves”.

After the incident, Kourtney and Khloé decided to surprise their sister by organizing and performing in a flash mob to the Pussy Cat Dolls’ song Loosen Up My Buttons. Kim was admittedly embarrassed by the display, which meant that Kourtney considered it a success, she told the cameras.
A few years later, in early 2020 Kim made a TikTok video with daughter North West in which she can be seen dancing with her daughter.
Kim revealed to Entertainment Tonight that North West has a private TikTok account where, not being allowed to post the videos, she creates drafts and saves them to the account. Kim also said that pair make lots of TikToks together, leaving viewers wondering whether there might be more to come.
Kim’s Other Talents
Whilst Kim may not be the best dancer in the world, she has talents in other areas.
The social media guru has not only been a successful model for years, working with international fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue, but she is also a reality television star, and, arguably most successfully, a businesswoman, running her own beauty line, KKW Beauty, and clothing line with two of her sisters.
