We hired Mahira for a our block party. It was a blast! Everyone enjoyed her performance. She involved the crowd and even did a short lesson. She even brought the kids up to teach them those snakey arm movements. Such a good time for all. We plan to hire her every year now for our block parties. We can't do one without her now. Thank you Mahira!
I hired Mahira for my daughter's bridal shower. We had so much fun. She was friendly, professional and a beautiful dancer. Thank you Mahira!
