Mirka has a long history of different dance styles. She started dancing at the age of seven with ballroom dancing and continued until her teenage years. She found dance again in 2010 and got into Latin rhythms, especially Cuban dances. After that, she has tried various dance styles, such as Broadway, twerk, pole dance and different couple dances. However, Show Burlesque took her heart and gave a whole new meaning for dancing. None of Mirka’s classes is identical. Years of experience is reflected in insightful and skilled choreographies that have been inspired by all the dance styles Mirka has danced. The years of experience can be seen in her skillful choreographies that are inspired by all the dance styles Mirka has danced.

As a teacher, Mirka is compelling and purposeful but still easy-going. There is always a cheerful atmosphere in the classes. It is important to Mirka that the joy of dancing is present in her teaching, as well as the enjoying of the music, own movements and the crossing of boundaries.

Mirka has been part of different dance groups. Earlier she was the choreographer and one of the dancers in the Show Burlesque dance group called glamGRLS’n’pantyHOES. Nowadays, she does the same in Flama’s own Latin dance group, Flama Crew and is the leader and choreographer of Flama’s Show Burlesque group, Flaming Firecrackers.
