Dance Instructor, Associate Financial Advisor, Servus Credit Union
Kira has called Fort McMurray home for the past 2.5 years, making the decision to move from Wetaskiwin, Alberta, to be here with Shaun, who she recently became engaged to. Kira and Shaun have two Boston Terriers, Sofie and Hank, who she endearingly refers to as her two fur babies.
Kira has worked at Servus Credit Union as an Associate Financial Advisor for almost two years and in her spare time, Kira enjoys travelling, yoga and holistic nutrition.
Her dance training includes instruction from Andy & Tina’s Dance FX, Harbour Dance Center, Royal Caribbean Productions, as well as from Ryan & Ashleigh Dilello (from TV reality show’s Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance). Kira danced with Royal Caribbean Productions for seven years performing in a number of different shows: Wild Wild West, The Beat Goes On, Stage to Screen, Vibe*ology, Rhythm & Rhyme, Swing City, My Romance, Now & Forever, Tango Buenos Aires, Big Time Swing, Wild Cool & Swinging, Fast Forward, Jackpot, Can’t Stop the Rock and Music in Motion. Her dancing has earned her numerous awards and scholarships, but one of her most notable achievements was being asked to participate in an “Invitation to Dance” which was a ballroom show created by Louis Van Amstel & Cheryl Burke from Dancing with the Stars which she did for two years.
Kira agreed to participate in Dancing with the Stars to support the SPCA, hoping to help create awareness for what she believes is an incredible cause. She loves animals and wishes she could adopt them all, but since she’s “not allowed to”, she’s excited to be able to support the shelter by lending her dancing talents to their fundraising event.
