We had the good fortune of connecting with Shahira Mcginty and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shahira, how does your business help the community?
I believe my business helps my community by being a very positive impact In Our youth . It’s giving the youth a positive outlet to experience . Keeping them off the streets by having them apart of my youth dance team . Showing them the lifestyle of being an Amazing dancer can be easy but yet fun . Showing them that dance is art it’s a good time and learning different things in dance as well . Keeping them active in such a powerful way and happy . Dance can let you unleash all your bad energy and bring out the powerful person inside.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I wake up every morning ready to get to work . I run a nonprofit organization (Dance team ) my passion for my team is way beyond this universe I won’t stop until my final goal is met . That’s to get my girls a dance studio in our Buckeye Arizona community. The challenges I did face was a lot of negativity throughout the process but I never once let it stop me . I am now a flourishing hip hop dance team A multi- culture dance team at that . So many lessons I have learned one being never not Believe in yourself . If you learn to push yourself harder and go to the struggle the good things will come out of it .

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I absolutely love to go out to eat I love to go dancing and I love to go shopping so we would have a fun weekend. One of my most favorite things to do is be around water I love to swim . I love to be outdoors I love taking nice walks and bike rides. Taking a fabulous cruise is one of my major things I would love to do more often. But that leaves me back to always making up dances routines and dancing.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a huge shoutout to my husband Jeremy McGinty. He has been in my corner from the first day I started my organization in 2018 he’s my motivation he always lifts me up to be better and go hard in my business career.
