Ira McCurry

Owner & Instructor

Ms. Ira has had a passion for performing since she started taking dance lessons at the age of three. Her training began in her hometown of Kansas City at Byrd’s Dance & Gymnastics until moving her training to The Pulse Performing Arts Center. She was a competition dancer for ten years and loved every moment of it! While dancing at The Pulse, she realized she wanted to pursue dance as a career. This resolution led her to apply and audition for Oklahoma City University’s American Dance and Entertainment school.


During her college career, she performed in multiple student choreography shows and community theater shows. She was a member of the Pep Dance Team and was Co-Director her senior year. After four years, she graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree in American Dance Pedagogy. Following graduation, she began her teaching career as a Dance Director for Oklahoma City Public School District, was a teacher and choreographer at All That Dance, and became a Company member of RACE Dance Collective.


Ms. Ira is ecstatic to begin this new journey as a studio owner and director. Being able to share her love for dance with her students brings so much joy to her heart. There is much more than just dancing that goes on in her classes. Not only does she focus on technique and performance, but she also highlights lessons, such as teamwork and discipline, that can be applied in everyday life. Ira strives to provide a sense of community at her studio. She wants every student that walks through her doors to know that they are special, important, and worthy. Ms. Ira will be teaching classes for both the recreational and company programs.
