Mirka discovered her passion for dance at the end of high school when she spent two years taking ballroom classes in her home country. After moving to Montpellier, France, she discovered the beauty of belly dancing with Audreena from the Belly’ssima Cie she immediately fell in love with the charming and elegant moves of undulations, maya and shimmy. Seeking opportunities to belly dance at every place she lived, she joined the dance classes at Ottawa’s YMCA-YWCA the first week she moved to Ottawa!
Here is when she first time met the amazing crew of bollywood dancers from Live2Dance and Bollywood For Fun and she very quickly found her new passion: bollywood dance.
Not forgetting her first dance steps in the rhythm of waltz and foxtrot, she is now teaching with Herman both ballroom and salsa at various YMCA-YWCA locations in Ottawa and Orléans.
