Shakira Ortiz

I started off as a gymnast and then stumbled upon dance and found my true passion. I then started at Dance Academy USA in Cupertino at age 12 where I took classes and immediately started competing on their production company which I did for 5 years. I also simultaneously trained at Western Ballet Academy in Mountain View. I then founded the Los Altos High School Dance Team in 2002 which I was a member of and then went on to coach for two years after where I won awards for dance and choreography. Since then I have gone on to teach at multiple schools and studios and perform with varies companies. I am now currently teaching dance at Google as a part of the GFit team and have started my own dance company that works directly with Bay Area school programs to bring dance into schools. I am looking forward to working with and become a part of the Harmony Dance Family.
