Hey, I'm Shira!
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California with my amazing family and my adorable dog, Cosmo. I'm definitely a "Cali Girl" - great weather, great music, and great tacos are the keys to my heart. Dance has been my #1 passion for almost 20 years - tap, jazz, ballet, modern, hiphop, ballroom - you name it! After graduating with honors from the University of California, Irvine with degrees in Dance and Business Administration, I headed out to NYC to attend Broadway Dance Center's Summer Professional Semester and decided to stay and live the dream.
I have been fortunate to work both in the US and internationally as a featured tap dancer. Most recently, I performed as the Girl in Green, in Candlelight Pavilion's production of Singin' in the Rain. As a tap dancer, I have been a soloist at resorts across the Dominican Republic and ave also been featured at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as an American Tapper in Celtic Fyre, rated the #1 Theme Park Show in America! My choreographic work, "Tuned in, Turned Off", was also featured at the prestigious Symphony Space in NYC.
When I'm not dancing, there's a good chance I'm at the gym! I love being a strong, athletic dancer and enjoy cross-training multiple times a week. I currently share my passion for fitness as an ACE-certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor Learn more here!
