Mira Boyda, Co-Founder

Mira is a dancer, educator, nature enthusiast, citizen lobbyist and co-founder of Event Dancer. As a dancer, Mira specializes in teaching Latin and Country social dancing while actively training in competitive Salsa dance. She was introduced into the events industry through friend and mentor Kristy, owner and founder of On the Flip Side. She has worked alongside Kristy for several years and learned from her the most important aspects of providing a quality service to the events industry.

Mira understands the demands of event planning, and the need for reliability and flexibility in event staffing.  Mira’s immersion within the local dance community showed her that many of the areas best dancers dance as a hobby while working in professional industries. Seeing the passion and commitment as well as professionalism in community members who happen to dance prompted Mira to create Event Dancer as a template to connect event planners with local, talented, professional dancers who love opportunities to share their passion.
