Mira Taylor

I was born and raised in Wheatland, am married to the love of my life, Nick, and we have been blessed with three precious kids.

After returning to Wheatland, I helped my sister start a youth dance group called I.M.A.J.N. and we had lots of fun performing around town for several years. Over the years, I have also had the privilege of going to multiple urban dance camps in California taught by the Word In Motion Dance Company. In 2011, I was inspired to bring good clean hip hop to Wheatland’s youth, and have taught at Dance Wyoming since then and really enjoy getting to share my passion for music and dance with kids of all ages. In 2017 Linda and Joe Fabian hired me to manage the studio, and I have loved getting to help organize the going ons behind the scenes in partnership with our wonderful team of teachers.
