Shira was born and raised in sunny Southern California and developed a passion for dance at an early age. She is a graduate of UC Irvine, with dual BAs in Dance and Business Administration. Having spent 5 years in NYC, Shira recently returned to her roots in SoCal to continue her career and be closer to family (and the beach!).
Shira is blessed to have traveled the world, performing both in the US and abroad. Credits include: Celtic Fyre at Busch Gardens Williamsburg (rated the #1 theme park show in America!); SeaWorld; Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; and Singin’ in the Rain at the Candlelight Pavilion Theatre.
Currently, you can catch Shira in The Bodyguard at the Welk Theater in Escondido, CA, running 4/15-06/11. Following that, Shira will be making her debut at the Moonlight Amphitheatre this fall in their production of Saturday Night Fever.
In addition to performing, Shira is a certified strength and nutrition coach with a passion for building strong, resilient humans. In the last 7 years, Shira was a founding coach for the first Row House franchise, a consultant for the Brooklyn-based start-up, Ergatta, and has trained 100's of clients in CA and NYC at Crunch, Venmo, the UPenn Alumni Club, and more.
